Our 42-926 high-performance PXIe Chassis provides one PXIe system slot, one PXIe timing slot and 16 hybrid compatible slots for application flexibility. The chassis utilizes a single PCI segment with a dedicated PCIe-to-PCI bridge module for the hybrid slots. The PXI-specific high accuracy clocks and trigger signals are generated and controlled by an independent clock module attached to the rear of the backplane.

The chassis is fitted with a 1200W 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 cooling fan speed. The current condition of the chassis can be monitored remotely via a port on the rear panel.

Three 120mm fans ensure maximum PXI module cooling and an efficient direct convection design allows the chassis to operate over an extended ambient temperature range of 0°C to +50°C.

This version is the Gen 2 high-performance PXIe chassis; we also have a Gen 3 hybrid chassis, available in 18-slot (model 42-925) and 8-slot (model 42-924) that support the latest generation PXIe modules.
