CP195
cPCI/PXI Chassis Mainframe

The CP195 is an 8U rackmount 20-slot cPCI/PXI chassis mainframe that can accommodate up to 19 instruments. The 6U slot form-factor provides the necessary real estate to accommodate high performance and high-density test instrumentation, while offering the flexibility of being able to use 3U PXI and cPCI instruments as well. The CP195 offers a full range of features and options including support for embedded or external system controllers.

The CP195 provides forced-air cooling which is generated by four 52 CFM fans mounted under the card cage—providing positive airflow per the PXI specifications. This configuration provides the optimum cooling for the chassis regardless of the type or number of instruments used. Additional cooling is provided for the power supplies.

The CP195 Smart Chassis supports the monitoring of slot temperatures and system power supply voltages as well providing the ability to program or map each PXI trigger line from one PCI segment to another. In addition, the user can program the temperature monitoring function for specific warning and shutdown limits. All user specific setups can be stored in non-volatile memory as a user configuration and can be used as the default setup for normal chassis operation.

The CP195 supports mass interconnect interfaces from several manufacturers including Virginia Panel, MacPanel, ITT Cannon, and others via the CP195 Universal Receiver Interface.
