The 9U high enclosure comes standard with an 8-slot CompactPCI backplane for 6U cards and can accept special telephony backplanes. It also accepts a wide spectrum of plug-in CompactPCI CPU cards from the PowerPC to the Pentium II processor. Dual 250W hot-swappable power supplies allow the system to continue operation if one of the supplies malfunctions. The working power supply assumes the full systems load while the faulty supply is being replaced. Three 5.25î or 3.5î front accessible, horizontal shock mounted drive bays are located behind the front panel door. Positive pressure cooling is provided by three 4.7î hot-swappable, high efficiency ball bearing fans (270 CFM) located below the card cage. Washable air filters are an integral part of the front panel doors and are easily removable. The control panel consists of a recessed power and reset switch with power-on and hard drive LEDs. There is room for additional system controls, special switches or alarm monitoring to meet specific application requirements. The all-steel, black enclosure provides EMI/RFI shielding and line transient protection. The electronics are modular in design for easy integration and service. About SBS Micro Alliance
