Airstrip Security System Control
This system consists of two conduction-cooled 10-slot CompactPCI racks. One is placed near the airstrip while the other is placed in the control tower. The customized racks are based on MEN's CCA (conduction-cooled assembly) concept, enabling operating temperatures from -40°C to +85°C. Each rack consists of an F19P-based Intel Core 2 Duo CPU board with several M-Modules and a PSU, with all boards customized for conduction cooling. The M-Modules control the hardware of the security system via digital and analog interfaces, all of which are available via special rugged connectors.
Standard Components Used in this Example
The F19P versatile 4HP/3U single-board computer is compatible to the CompactPCI PlusIO standard and equipped with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor SP9300.
This single Euro rack enclosure for CompactPCI cards in 3U format allows to use standard boards that were designed for ventilated systems even in an environment which needs conductive cooling.
