RME-6430 Datasheet


Dawn’s RME-6430 was designed specifically to meet the stringent power and cooling needs of high slot count VPX systems. Designed for lab or deployed use, the RME-6430 offers a wide variety of features to suit most program needs.

Boards are flush mounted. A recessed rear TM cage is provided for applications requiring rear TM’s. All cable routing is outside of critical cooling paths. A hinged rear door provides for multifunction mounting of rear fans, auxiliary power supplies, and provides I/O space.

Dawn’s flagship RuSH™ system health monitoring technology is used to protect your valuable investment in boards by monitoring critical voltage, current and temperature thresholds, and controlling fans to meet cooling requirements. Upon a catastrophic situation, RuSH™ takes the necessary action to shut down system or overcome faults. RuSH™ provides internet enabled remote control and error/status reporting.

The chassis may be ordered with only the features required to minimize cost.
