High Performance Cooling for OpenVPX 

OpenVPX systems continue to bring cooling challenges with higher and higher power boards.   The Pixus RiCool OpenVPX solution features powerful hot-swappable fans that reside directly above the card guide and blow the heat 90 degrees out the rear of the enclosure. The solution provides up to 382 CFM of airflow in the chassis for superior cooling.  With Pixus' expertise in high-performance backplanes and highly rugged rails for the intense insertion forces of OpenVPX, we have an ideal solution for your application.   Versions for 3U boards and 6U boards are available. 

 Contact Pixus for rugged/MIL grade versions of our OpenVPX enclosures.
