Schroff’s latest product developments

At electronica fair in Munich from 11 to 14 November 2008, Schroff GmbH, one of the leading manufacturers of electronics packaging, presented its latest product developments for frame-type plug-in units, power supply units, subracks, backplanes and complete systems for the VME, CompactPCI and MicroTCA standards. Schroff will also exhibit a water-cooled cabinet for industrial applications. In addition, focus will be placed on ServicePLUS, Schroff's system of service options for all its products.
19" frame-type plug-in units are mechanical components that serve to hold one or more circuit boards. The boards housed in a plug-in unit are thus combined into a larger electronic function unit that is self-contained and testable. For its off-the-shelf 19" plug-in unit range Schroff has now developed the new, cost-optimised frame-type plug-in unit PRO family that offers improved airflow (up to 65 %), greater robustness, better EMC shielding and considerably faster assembly, resulting in reduced costs.
For powerful multi-processor applications in the smallest spaces, such as are required for image and video processing in industry or medicine or as media servers in transport applications, Schroff has developed a compact MicroTCA system. This system contains six slots for the horizontal mounting of AdvancedMC single mid-size modules and a MCH (MicroTCA carrier hub). The 19" wide and 1 U high system, with a depth of 350 mm, is cooled efficiently by a hot swap-capable fan tray with cooling unit management.
For industrial applications and in instrumentation and measurement technology Schroff now offers a version of the well-known Varistar LHX 3 as a complete cabinet solution with AWHE (air/water heat exchanger) that can cool up to 3 kW of dissipated heat. In this version the AWHE is not situated in the cabinet base but rather takes the form of a 5 U high 19" chassis. Perforation of the chassis on all sides and an air channel in the rear door offer high flexibility in use as a single or side-by-side cabinet. The perforations (cold air outlets) on the AWHE can be selectively closed in order to influence the movement of the cold air.
Again and again the PSUs of CompactPCI systems run up against their performance limits. Accordingly, Schroff has extended the maxpowerPRO family of switched-mode power supplies by adding a PSU for CompactPCI applications with high power requirements to the range. Despite its considerably higher output capacity the dimensions remain unchanged (6 U/8 HP/160 mm deep). By increasing efficiency to 84 %, performance could be substantially enhanced. The new maxpowerPRO PSU now has an output of 500 W and features a wide input voltage range of between 90 VAC and 264 VAC to allow use worldwide in a wide spectrum of applications.
From non-standard system solutions, modified off-the-shelf components to individual new developments, electronics packaging specialist Schroff offers everything a system could need. In its new 16-page brochure "Everything a system needs" Schroff presents products, services and competencies for developing and manufacturing co-ordinated electronics systems. The brochure outlines the various standard components of a system, on the basis of which specific systems can be configured.
