Description :

The Keysight Technologies E1401B is Keysight Technologies Technologies most compact, medium-power, high-performance C-size, 13-slot VXI mainframe. Ample dynamic and peak currents are available for most power-hungry applications.

The E1401B is well suited for applications that require high-density instrumentation. The E1401B complies with the VXI plug&plays specification, and an optional rack mount kit is available for attaching VXI plug&play-defined interconnect fixtures. This mainframe also complies with the VXI Specification by providing injector surface rails used by the Keysight Technologies QUIC easy module insertion and extraction system. Keysight Technologies industry-leading Pressurised Air Channel cooling technology is integrated into this C-size mainframe.

This mainframe provides for easy airflow and power supply serviceability via the rear panel. The backplane features solid state automatic daisy-chain jumper connections for VMEbus grant and interrupt acknowledge lines, eliminating the need for hand selection of switch settings. It is also compatible with the Keysight Technologies backplane connector shield kit (p/n E1400-80920).

The Keysight Technologies E1403C 1- or 2-slot VXI carrier adapts A- or B-size VXI modules for use in al C-size VXI mainframes. P1, which is the only connector available, is a fully buffered extension. The E1403C provides slave-only capability and cannot be used in Slot 0 or with bus masters. The standard module is 1-slot wide; Option 010 is 2 slots wide, however, it only connects to the backplane on the left-most slot. Any number of adapters can be used in an Keysight Technologies VXI mainframe.

Many (but not all) VME cards can be adapted for use in C-size VXI mainframes using this module if they meet VXI mechanical and electrical restrictions. However, this is not a supported configuration.
