CompactPCI® Serial 19-Inch System Rack • CoolConduct® Technology for High Performance Industrial Computing 

The SRS-8493-COOLCONDUCT is a 19-inch (4U/84HP) CompactPCI® Serial system rack, suitable for demanding industrial applications such as multiprocessing across several CPU cards or GPU boards (CUDA). A special technology was developed by EKF and partners for optimum cooling of each card slot, named CoolConduct®.
The top frame of the chassis is provided with a powerful heat exchanger system. Any card slot will be cooled down via flexible mounted skids, which match the ridge of a suitable heat spreader on any particular board. Skids and heat spreaders are made up of massive copper. The runners are overcoated with a special substance for optimum heat conduction.
Opposite to other known high power solutions, CoolConduct® allows to swap boards easily, without a tool for loosening and fastening sleeves with cooling medium. Several hundred Watts power can be dissipated at significant lower system cost compared to other technologies. The SRS-8493-CoolConduct racks are built to custom, with different backplane styles and power supplies available.
