Geotest - Marvin Test Systems
The GX7100e Series are 14-slot combination PXIe chassis that accommodate a 3U PXIe embedded controller or a MXI express controller as well as 3U & 6U PXI / PXIe insruments in 4U of rack space. The GX7100e’s unique format includes seven 6U slots and seven 3U slots arranged horizontally to reduce the overall size of the chassis, providing the versatility and high-density necessary to address many PXI / PXIe applications and requirements. The backplane architecture supports Gen 2, 4x4 PCI Express bus signaling and the use of both x1 or x4 system controllers. By offering a combination of PXI-1, Hybrid, and Express slots, the GX7100e offers users the ultimate in flexibility for general purpose as well as high bandwidth test needs.
The GX7100e Series offers a full range of features and options including an innovative forced-air cooling system comprised of eight (8) 20 CFM fans controlled by built-in temperature sensors. The fans provide airflow according to PXI revision 2.1 specifications. This cooling configuration provides optimum cooling for the chassis regardless of the type or number of instruments used. Additional cooling is provided for the system power supply.
The GX7100e Smart Chassis supports the monitoring of internal chassis 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.
