The space can be configured to include a 6.4" TFT LCD display, redundant modular power supply, and front or rear panel I/O access. The built-in chassis alarm module can monitor internal temperature and cooling fans status. It will alert users if the system temperature goes too high or if one fan fails. Front-access hot-swappable fan trays design makes chassis maintenance simpler and easier. The cPCIS-2600 series is the ideal platform for various test and measurement, instrumentation, traffic control, industrial automation, and mission critical applications.
