Rugged, Mil/Aero style 12-slot I/O chassis
The UEI-CAMS is a deployment of UEI’s COTS UEIPAC 1200-MIL 12-slot I/O chassis. The unit includes 11 I/O boards selected specifically to match the LCAC application. The chassis also includes an empty additional slot that can be utilized in the future if required.
The UEIPAC 1200-MIL chassis is on which the UEI-CAMS is based is the latest deployment of UEI’s popular RACKtangle® architecture. Though the original RACKtangles are quite rugged, the DNR-MIL series takes ruggedness to the extreme. Designed for use in the toughest environments, the new chassis is an ideal solution for military and aerospace deployments. The form factor is also ideal for a huge assortment of commercial applications including use on oil drilling platforms and refineries, heavy machinery, shipboard control, outdoor test stands and any other I/O application that will be exposed to the elements. All connectivity is through ROHS compliant 38999 connectors.
Electronically, the DNR-MIL is identical to the standard DNR Series RACKtangle except for hold-up and protection circuitry added to the power supply inputs. (This power supply conditioning is required in order to meet MIL-STD-1275.) This means the DNR-MIL uses our standard DNR-series board (e.g. DNR-AI-217or DNR-1553-553).
The new MIL sereis chassis is designed to meet the most commonly required elements of MIL-STD-461 and -810 and is sealed to at least IP66/NEMA6 standards. All this is housed in a compact 17.5” x 8.125” x 7” chassis, weighing less than 22 pounds and typically consuming less than 40 Watts. In addition, no rotary cooling fans are used in the design which maximizes MTBF and mechanical reliability. All internal printed circuit boards are conformal coated to ensure the highest reliability. When deployed the UEI-CAMS runs an application on a VxWorks operating system. This allows unit to both run stand alone control operations as well as running as part of a SCADA system controlled and/or monitored by an external host computer. The VxWorks application in conjunction with the unit’s dual Ethernet ports allows the link to the host PC to be implemented ina a fully redundant network.
The DNR-MIL platform is 100% COTS, made in the USA and supported by UEI’s family of over 50 compatible analog, digital and interface I/O boards, including analog inputs up to 24-bits, thermocouples, RTDs, ICP/IEPE, ARINC-429/453/708, MIL-STD-1553, CAN, RVDT/LVDT, synchro/resolver, RS-232/422/485, strain gauge, quadrature encoder, high-voltage analog outputs (up to 115 VDC) with high drive analog output (up to 200 mA), function generator outputs and more.
Whether your application is on a ship/boat, in an aircraft, in a rocket, on an outdoor test cell, on an oil platform or simply going to be left outside and exposed to the elements, the chassis on which the UEI-CAMS is based is an ideal solution. Of course if you need fewer I/O, you should consider the 4-slot 4.45” x 6.75” x 7.35” DNA-MIL Cube which offers many of the same features and options, but offers slots for up to 4 I/O boards in a much smaller chassis
