LCR AoC-550 Air over conduction cooled VPX chassisAoC-550 Extends System Cooling Capacity

The AoC-550 is nearing end of life. Please refer to the AoC3U-400 and AoC3U-600 for our newest air-over-conduction cooled packaging solutions.

Part of our line of air-over conduction-cooled enclosures, the AoC-550 is an ATR chassis designed to maintain safe operating temperatures for high power 3U VPX conduction cooled systems for VPX and SOSA-aligned modules.

The VITA 48.2 based system combines forced air cooling with standard conduction cooling to dramatically increase cooling capacity compared with conduction only chassis. High performance fans channel air through the chassis side walls in a direction perpendicular to the wedge locks. The chassis side walls contain cooling heatsinks and fans which supply adequate pressure and flow rate while isolating the modules from direct air contact.

The AoC-550 is designed to meet a variety of MIL-STD-810, MILSTD-461, and MIL-S-901D standards and may be configured with custom or standard 6 slot backplanes, which include VPX and SOSA-aligned slot profiles in combinations supporting high speed signal applications. The AoC-550 is available with or without board payloads.
