System Rack for 6U CompactPCI  Boards

7U, 19-" CompactPCI Rack, 8 Slots P1-P5 Busprint (P3-P5 Rear I/O)

With the CR7, EKF introduces a 19-inch rack for double size CompactPCI® boards (6U Eurocard). The versatile 7U system is provided with 8 CompactPCI slots and has been designed for optimum air-flow conditions.

The CR7-RACK is a standard solution for vertical mounting of the boards. Equipped with power supply, floppy disk drive, hard disk and CD-ROM, the rack is well suited as an industrial computer system in a rugged environment.



The system-slot has been arranged right-most on the CompactPCI backplane. Located to the left, another 7 slots are available for adapter boards. The fan unit on the bottom of the rack forces a vertical air-flow between the CompactPCI boards.

Hence, despite of the low overall depth all components remain in a perfectly cool condition, and the rear mounting panel can be used for additional I/O connectors.
