The CHU Series chassis are
designed to accept Eurocard form factor amplifiers, motion controllers and
accessories. These chassis are also sometimes referred to as "VME Racks".
Rack mounted products generally have a much cleaner appearance and are
easier to service than edge or panel mounted units. Modules can be replaced
by simply removing four small mounting screws and sliding the unit out of
the rack. CHU chassis are available in 3U or 6U sizes (1U =
1.75"). Dividers can be placed in the 6U size rack to provide both 3U and 6U
mounting in a single cabinet.
All wiring and interconnections are done through backplanes on the rear side of the rack. Backplanes are available for all Western Servo Design Eurocard style products and Delta Tau PMAC VME Bus motion controllers. Custom system backplanes can also be designed.
CHU Series chassis can be used as stand alone units, or mounted in standard 19" equipment racks. A Fan module is included with three high-efficiency cooling fans (DC fans are used to cut down on radiated electrical noise). Available accessories include rack mount Motion Controllers, Power Supplies, Inductor Boards, and PMAC interface boards.
