VME SYSTEM CHASSIS
The card cage is flush with the front surface of the chassis. If cables must be routed between the faceplates and the interior of the chassis, they must go over the top of the card cage. Any panel mounted above the card cage must take this into consideration, if required.

For those systems that do not require 5¼" drives, the VMEDA disk adapter can mount one or two 3½" drives in only two or three slots of the card cage. See the VMEDA data sheet for details.
Another option, for systems that do not require more than 13 VME slots, is to mount one or two 5¼" drives in a VMEDA-2X5FH adapter. This adapter occupies 8 slots of the card cage. See the VEV-15 data sheet for an example of this adapter in use.
For systems using less than 500 watts of power, you may request lower velocity fans to minimize acoustic noise. Fans as low as 57cfm, which reduce fan noise to virtually inaudible, are available at no extra charge. This option is not recommended when a power supply above 500 watts is used.
A "Full-Function" control panel upgrade (VR-21-CP) is an extra cost option. In addition to the power switch, this control panel includes RESET and ABORT buttons, DC POWER and SYSFAIL indicators and SYSRESET, ABORT, ACFAIL and Line Frequency signals. The full-function control panel will detect AC power failures and generate a Power-On SYSRESET. The SYSRESET and ABORT signals are debounced and programmable by jumpers to generate either a logic level or 300ms pulse, active high or low, when the signal is asserted. All of the photos in this document depict the full-function control panel. See the VX-11 document for more control panel information.
The smaller power supply is the PS500-A:
The larger power supply is the PS700-A:
The DC outputs are cabled as required to the backplane and to the optional mass storage drives. The power supply is mounted in the rear of the pow-AIR-pak. It can be accessed for maintenance by removing the top cover. Adjustments are accessible through the removable rear panel.
Input power is typically 110/220 VAC 50/60Hz. Other voltages and frequencies can be accommodated on special order. The AC input voltage is nromally selected by changing a jumper inside the chassis. Autoranging power supplies are optionally available.
