Designed for Harsh Mechanical, Climatic, Chemical and Electrical Stresses
Aitech's E106 Fan-cooled VME computer enclosure is built to be rugged and reliable as well as lightweight and compact. EMI/RFI protected and environmentally sealed, the E106 is capable of withstanding extreme environmental conditions of altitude, temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, EMI and chemical exposure. This makes it ideal for use in all military environments.
STURDY MECHANICAL DESIGN
The E106 is constructed of durable CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminium. Fasteners are stainless steel and often-used threads have self-locking stainless steel helicoils to withstand severe vibration and
shock. All connectors are located on the front panel of the enclosure for easy access. Side and back walls are internally finned (to create air tunnels), for cooling by the forced air from the integral fan.
Designed with a built-in handle, the E106 is also equipped with hooks and mounting holes to facilitate installation in standard 1/2-ATR short mounting trays.
The enclosure is also available with optional mounting brackets for base plate hard mounting.
The E103 accommodates 3 standard VME boards with 0.8-inch pitch, including:
• IEEE 1101.2 conduction-cooled VME cards
• Commercial VME boards without front panels
The 3-slot backplane is VME64x compliant with 160-pin, 5-row J1/J2 connectors and 95-pin PO connectors in all slots and automatic Daisy Chain.
Any of the pins in rows A and C, and user-defined pins in rows Z and D of the J2 connectors, as well as the 95 I/O pins from each of the P0 connectors (up to a maximum of 512), can be routed to front panel I/O connectors.
The backplane also contains two I2C devices with integrated temperature sensors and voltage monitors. An additional I2C device is an Elapsed Time Recorder (ETR) that stores the cumulative operating
time of the enclosure. System temperature, backplane voltages, and total elapsed operating time of the enclosure can be read by the system SBC via its I2C bus, if available.
