The PowerBridge RackPak/M5-1 MicroTCA® chassis is a 2U 19″ rack offering up to 6 AdvancedMC™ slots, 5 of them are MTCA.4 compliant slots with up to 5 µRTMs. The RackPak/M5-1 system is the perfect base for small and low cost computer platforms in medical, industrial automation, transportation, military, and telecommunication. It supports high-end computing applications with up to 6 CPU modules as well as I/O intensive configurations. Based on the MicroTCA® and AdvancedMC™ PICMG® standards it is the best solution for long life cycle applications.

The RackPak/M5-1 includes an exchangeable cooling unit, with left-to-right cooling. Other cooling units are available upon request, as the user has to carefully evaluate the overall thermal design of his application. The cooling units are field replaceable, depending on the environmental needs.

The system can be equipped with any double full-size MTCA.0 AC power supply or a high precision 1.000W PSU. Cooling system and PSU are designed for a maximum of 80W power dissipation per slot. The dust filter and the fan cartridge are hot-swappable. An optional DC input power supply is also available.
