The SRS-8493-COOLCONDUCT is a 19-inch (4U/84HP) CompactPCI® Serial system rack,
suitable for demanding industrial applications such as multiprocessing across several CPU cards or GPU boards (CUDA).
A special technology was developed by EKF and partners for optimum cooling of each card slot, named CoolConduct®.
The top frame of the chassis is provided with a powerful heat exchanger system.
Any card slot will be cooled down via flexible mounted skids, which match the ridge
of a suitable heat spreader on any particular board.
Skids and heat spreaders are made up of massive copper.
The runners are overcoated with a special substance for optimum heat conduction.
Opposite to other known high power solutions, CoolConduct® allows to swap boards easily,
without a tool for loosening and fastening sleeves with cooling medium.
Several hundred Watts power can be dissipated at significant lower system cost compared to other technologies.
The SRS-8493-CoolConduct racks are built to custom, with different backplane styles and power supplies available.
