Pickering Interface 40-922 PXI Chassis is a fully compliant 8 slot PXI chassis that can accept any 3U PXI or cPCI module. The chassis is ideal for bench top use or for use in a rack system.

The 40-922 includes all the features and performance required by the PXI standard and supports a control interface or embedded controller and up to 7 additional 3U peripheral modules. The control interface can be provided by a Pickering’s 41-921 PCI to PXI interface kit, allowing the chassis to be controlled from a PC.

The chassis is fitted with a 350W industrial grade power supply mounted at the rear of the unit with sufficient capacity to support PXI modules with very high current demands.

An intelligent chassis management system monitors the power supply voltage, internal temperature and the cooling fan speed. The current condition of the chassis is displayed on front panel status LEDs and can also be monitored remotely via an RS232 port

Two 60cfm fans insure maximum PXI module cooling and an efficient direct convection design allows
the chassis to operate over an extended ambient temperature range of 0ºC to +55ºC..

The low acoustic emissions make the chassis ideal for applications such as office or laboratory environments where noise levels are critical. The sound pressure level varies between 41.6dB and 47.3dB dependant upon the controlled fan speed which automatically responds to the internal chassis temperature.

The 40-922 chassis can also be supplied with a mounting frame to allow installation into a standard 19” rack. The frame increases the overall height to 5U and allows space for cooling air to be drawn into the underside and expelled from the top of the chassis.

The system slot is compatible with any PC-PXI bridge and any 3 slot wide PXI controller
