functions

The Trainnet® Racks are required with every Trainnet® System. Trainnet® modules only work when integrated into a Trainnet® Rack. The Racks enable communication between modules via an integrated IEC 821 VME back plane bus. All modules also take power from the power supply via the back plane.


key features

Trainnet® Racks come in different sizes to fit all needs. While 44TE and 84TE wide racks are commonly used, a 20TE wide rack is also available for smaller systems. When working with a high number of modules or when requiring the 1U ESU module (Power-over-Ethernet), the 6U 84TE can be used. Other racks sizes are also available upon request.

The 3U 44TE and 3U 84TE Racks have different back plane options. Please read the table below for an overview of the possible rack-backplane combinations. The number of free slots for both VME modules (CPUs, bus interface modules and HSA module) and I/O modules (all I/O but HSA) are mentioned. The space required for the power supply is already taken into account.

options

Side mounting for 20TE Racks:

The 3U 20TE Racks can be sided mounted as an option, instead of the usual front mounting. Dimensions are then W127 x H133 x D306 mm.
