Global Foxcom provides both chassis and standalone power supplies to be used with its Satcom fiber optic Interfacility Links (IFL). The chassis supports 8 cards, incorporating “hot swap” capabilities. The 7180M chassis uses the 7001P switching supply.
The chassis is a standard 19 inch, 3U configuration. The chassis contains two slots located on the right side for power supplies. The standard chassis is supplied with a single power supply. An additional power supply for redundancy is optional. Each power supply is provided with a separate AC input, enabling use from different main sources.
The chassis utilizes a rigid back plane design providing a stable platform for the mounting of Global Foxcom IFL products. Outputs for control and monitoring are accessible via 25-pin D – connectors. The back plane design also allows for the use of an optional relay adaptor in cases where dry contact closures, versus the standard TTL open collector outputs, are preferable.
Where a chassis is not required or feasible, Global Foxcom provides a compact standalone power supply, capable of powering any Global Foxcom IFL product.
