FREMONT, Calif. – November 15, 2016 – Dawn VME Products, a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance and reliable embedded packaging technology products based on the VITATM and PICMG® architectures, announces the PSC-6238 VITA 62 compliant up to 800 Watt 3U OpenVPX Power Supply for conduction cooled systems, the latest addition to its first-to-market VITA 62 compliant family of power supplies introduced in 2011.

The PSC-6238 is designed to operate in a military environment over a wide range of temperatures at high power levels, is extended shock and vibration compliant per MIL-STD-810F and features an onboard real-time clock with switchable Battleshort and NED (Nuclear Event Detect) functions.

Dawn’s PSC-6238 is a wedge lock conduction cooled module on a 1 inch pitch with an operating temperature of -400C to +850C at the wedge lock edge. The up to 800 Watt power output true 6-channel supply provides full Open VPX support and is current/load share compatible with up to 4 PSC-6238 units.

The PSC-6238 front I/O panel includes a 3-color LED status indicator, VBAT battery access and a USB port for status display, access menu control and firmware upgrade.

Dawn’s embedded RuSH™ Rugged System Health Monitor technology provides for intelligent monitoring and control of critical system performance parameters including voltage, current, temperature and control of power sequencing and shutdown of all voltage rails.

Custom RuSH™ firmware enables additional features such as monitoring humidity, shock/vibration events or customer specified monitoring windows, power sequencing, alerts, alarms, status and control, event logging, etc. The RuSH™ monitor is interfaced into the OpenVPX (I2C) management plane, providing an I2C communication link with system cards.
