15-slot Fault-resilient IPC Chassis

IPC-615 Introduction

The IPC-615 is a new 15-slot, 19" rackmount industrial PC chassis which can accept up to 15 ISA/PCI full-length cards. The IPC-615 has a 300-watt power supply with an ultra-high output rating of -12 V. The IPC-615 has a front-accessible disk drive bay that can hold two half-height and one 3.5" storage devices. It also features an advanced fault detection and alarm notification system. The IPC-615 monitors its own hardware status for fan failure and over heating. If a malfunction is detected, an audible alarm will alert users of required maintenance. Problems can be clearly identified through the IPC-615's visible alarm status panel at the front of the unit.

Ultra-high -12 V Output Power Supply
The IPC-615 can be equipped with 110/220 VAC power supply or a -48 VDC power supply. Both units provide an ultra-high output rating on a -12 V supply: @ 5 A for DC power supply and @ 2.5 A for AC power supply. This feature makes the IPC-615 an ideal platform for a wide range of CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) applications, such as a fax-on-demand (FOD) system where a large number of fax/modem cards are used in a single chassis.

  • Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) platforms
  • Small office and home office (SOHO) automation
  • Computer-based PBX systems
  • FAX-on-demand (FOD) systems
  • Voice mail systems
  • Heavy-duty network server

Fault Detection and Alarm Notification
The IPC-615 monitors system hardware for fan failure and high temperature within the chassis. Fault conditions are:
  • Fan Failure: If either of the two cooling fans fail
  • Over Temp: If the chassis interior temperature exceeds 65 C (149 F)
Once a problem is detected, an audible alarm will sound and a corresponding LED indicator (located in the front door) changes color from green to red.

Maximized Expansion Capacity
Expansion capability is a key consideration in choosing a suitable CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) platform. Often 10 or more full length cards are required to build a complete CTI server. The IPC-615 is designed for full utilization of the chassis space, to accept up to 15 full-length cards.

IPC-615 Features

  • 19" rackmount, 4U height, 18.8" depth
  • Two high-speed cooling fans for efficient heat dissipation
  • Reliable operation in 50 C (122 F) environment
  • Vibration dampened, front-accessible disk drive bay
  • Positive air pressure prevents dust and dirt build-up in the chassis
  • Rubber-buffered card hold-down clamp protects plug-in cards from vibration
  • Lockable door for data security
  • CE compliant and UL approved

IPC-615 Specification

General Specifications
  • Construction: Heavy-duty steel chassis
  • Slots: Up to 15 full-length cards can be installed in a single chassis
  • Disk Drives: Holds two half-height and one 3.5" drives with vibration dampening. All drives are front accessible
  • Cooling fans: Two 86 CFM cooling fans (flow-in) with air filter in front panel
  • Controls: Power On/Off switch, CPU reset button, alarm reset button, keyboard-lock switch and speaker volume control knob are protected by a lockable door
  • Status indicators: Eight LEDs for +5 V, +12 V, -5 V, -12 V, HDD activity, keyboard-lock, fan failure and overheating
  • Keyboard connector: Pre-wired 5-pin DIN connectors on both front and rear panel
  • Speaker: One 8-ohm speaker with built-in amplifier and a knob for volume control

Fault Detection and Alarm Notification
  • Fan failure: If either of the two cooling fans fails, an LED alarm changes color from green to red
  • Excess temperature: If the chassis interior temperature exceeds 65 C (149 F), an alarm LED changes color from green to red. The LED remains red until the temperature goes below 60 C
  • Audible alarm: A speaker is activated as soon as a malfunction is detected, and sounds until the alarm reset button is pressed. However, the alarm indicator will stay red until the fault condition is resolved
