X-ES Unveils Convection-Cooled Sub-½ ATR Box for Rugged Military Applications

Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) announces the immediate availability of the XPand5200 Series, a convection-cooled sub-½ ATR box that provides both convection-cooling and conduction-cooling to conduction-cooled payload cards. Both 3U CompactPCI and 3U VPX backplanes are supported by the XPand5200 Series. Meeting the rigorous MIL-STD-810 standards, the XPand5200 Series is a sub-½ ATR solution for deployed systems in the harshest environments.

The XPand5200 Series features include:

  • ½ ATR natural convection-cooled and conduction-cooled chassis (reduced height and length)
  • Four conduction-cooled 0.8 .in. slots
  • Physical dimensions of 4.88 in. (W), 5.65 in. (H), 10.30 in. (L)
  • 3U VPX and cPCI backplanes available
  • Up to three D38999 front panel I/O connectors (configurable)
  • Integrated MIL-STD-704-compliant, 28 V DC power supply
  • MIL-STD-461E/F EMI filtering
  • Optional internal holdup of up to 100 ms at 70 W
  • Foldable front panel handle
  • Environmentally sealed
  • Integration services with third-party modules available

The XPand5200 Series rounds out X-ES’s sub-½ ATR systems for 3U conduction-cooled payload modules to provide customers with a full range of rugged systems deployed in harsh environments:

  • Conduction-cooled XPand3200 Series: 4.88 in. (W), 5.62 in. (H), 8.75 in. (L)
  • Forced air-cooled XPand4200 Series: 4.88 in. (W), 6.0 in. (H), 13.5 in. (L)
  • Convection-cooled XPand5200 Series: 4.88 in. (W), 5.65 in. (H), 10.30 in. (L)

“We have seen demand for XPand5200 Series-based systems as rugged Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliances; since Solid-State Storage generates very little heat, it is well suited to natural convection-cooling” states Bret Farnum, VP Sales. “We can provide a total of 3.5 TB of solid state Network Attached Storage in our XPand5200 populated with an Intel® or NXP (formerly Freescale) SBC.”
