When adding components to the ECUTS-16000, consider the total power consumption and dissipation budget.
The maximum allowable input current is limited to 16 A, so power consumption is dependent on the operating voltage. For example:
The following list indicates the maximum power that can be dissipated inside the ECUTS-16000 for a given ambient temperature with the lowest rated components installed. Additional power beyond the rated levels can be passed to components located externally to the ECUTS-16000.
The ambient temperature ratings and power dissipation limitations in the following list does not guarantee the thermal performance of components in the ECUTS-16000, only that the ECUTS-16000 contains adequate cooling capacity to provide the rated internal rack the ambient temperature needed to support properly rated and installed components. Ensure individual components installed in the ECUTS-16000 are within their specified operational ranges.
The power dissipation for each subsystem is dependent on configuration and usage. The table below shows the maximum power of each subsystem in the ECUTS-16000.
|Subsystem||Maximum Consumption||Maximum Dissipation||Notes|
|PXI||800 W||800 W||Actual power varies with instrumentation configuration and usage|
|SLSC||350 W||350 W||Assumes 12 FIU modules|
|RMX-410x||1,875 W||375 W||Assumes a maximum 1500 W output|
|RMX-400x||250 W||1,650 W||Local exhaust panel mitigates internal heating|
|Fixed User DC Power Supplies||125 W||25 W||Assumes both 12 V and 24 V outputs at 50 W|
|System Overhead||100 W||100 W||Comprised of internal power supplies, fans, and so on.|
