New SOSA™ Aligned ATR Enclosure Features Front Loaded Design

Pixus Technologies has announced a new chassis platform in the ATR form factor aligned to the SOSA Technical Standard.   It offers supplemental airflow through the chassis sidewalls and a front-loaded configuration. 

 The first in the series of front-loaded ATRs with supplemental airflow has six slots for VITA 48.2 compliant 3U OpenVPX boards and one slot for a VITA 62 power supply. The backplane options include various SOSA-aligned slot profiles and interfaces for optical and RF interfaces through the backplane. There is also space behind the backplane to mount Pixus’ SlotSaver mezzanine-based SOSA-aligned chassis hardware manager. 

The ATR058F series features optional fans or air ducting for airflow over the fins in the sidewalls of the enclosure. This allows improved system cooling while keeping the plug-in boards fully sealed. The chassis uses various options for SOSA-aligned power supply units that utilize 12V primarily, along with some 3.3V AUX. An external quick-access Solid State Drive (SSD) slot is also available. 

Pixus offers OpenVPX and SOSA-aligned configurations for backplane/chassis systems in commercial, development, and MIL rugged formats. The company also provides specialty ruggedized enclosures for standard and customized systems.
