KM6-HD heavy-duty subracks are optimised for major bus structures
Released 23 April 2013
The KM6-HD subrack from Verotec accepts 3U, 6U and 9U Eurocards up to 400mm deep in both IEC60297 and IEEE1101.10/11 configurations, conforming with the specifications for major backplane architectures such as VMEbus, VXI, VME64x, VPX, VXS, cPCI and PXI. Rear extrusion adaptors are available for the direct mounting of DIN41612 connectors for non-backplane applications. 80mm guides for rear transition cards as well as 160 and 220mm card guides are available
The system’s design provides a strong and rigid card cage, with high resistance to shock and vibration. Designed to meet the US MIL STD 167, its main features include positive guide locking with optional screw-down retention, heavy-duty two-screw fixings for the tiebar extrusions to give precision location and resistance to bowing or twisting and 3mm thick side plates and rack mounting angles for rigidity. An Iridite NCP conductive finish throughout and slide-in double swipe RFI continuity gaskets fitted to the 19” rack mounting angles and rear closing angles providing electrical continuity to adjacent panels in the front and rear apertures. Side plates are solid; solid top and bottom covers may be fitted to preserve EMC integrity; EMC vent pattern covers that facilitate cooling are also available as standard. Front and rear closing panels provide a fully screened EMC environment; inject/eject front panel handles, grounding clips, ESD clips and coding keys are available.
The system is compatible with the comprehensive range of KM6-II accessories including front panels, plug-in units and peripheral mounting assemblies. Optional heavy-duty handles are available for the rack mounting angles.
