New MicroTCA.4 Chassis from VadaTech Solves Power Redundancy Problem

- VadaTech now offers an 8U high chassis compliant with the MicroTCA.4 specification that offers N+1 redundant power to 4400W.

Henderson, NV - April 17, 2014 - VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, now offers an 8U high chassis compliant with the MicroTCA.4 specification that offers N+1 redundant power to 4400W.


MicroTCA.4 systems utilize double modules with an RTM connector for rear I/O. By adding RTM and higher power large modules, the overall power requirement in chassis are higher. Many High-Energy Physics and other applications require full power redundancy in the system. With specially designed power modules, the VT813 chassis from VadaTech has four 1100W power supplies in an N+1 redundant power configuration. By aligning the compact power supplies on the side of the card cage, the chassis can provide 12 double-module, mid-sized slots.

The backplane for the VT813 is 40GbE-ready, with a high dielectric material for clean signals. The chassis offers full redundancy, including dual fans trays in a push/pull configuration, dual MCH's, and four power supplies. There are also dual FRU information devices and carrier locators, along with a JTAG Switch Module slot and a Telco Alarm built-in.

VadaTech offers MicroTCA chassis, power modules, JSMs, and over 200 AdvancedMCs of various types. The company also offers AdvancedTCA systems and boards and specialty products in other architectures.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
