WILD100 16-Slot 19″ Top-Loading 6U OpenVPX Chassis – WC60G0

The WILD100 16-Slot 6U OpenVPX Chassis (WC60G0) is a 100Gb Ethernet-enabled COTS rackmount 6U VPX Chassis, Backplane, and Chassis Manager. It incorporates slots for up to 13 Payload Boards, and with three VITA 62 power supplies, the chassis can supply up to 3840W.

It is VITA 65 compliant, SOSA-aligned, and designed and built in USA.

The 16-Slot Top-Loading Chassis is a rugged OpenVPX-compatible Chassis and high-speed Backplane supporting 25 Gbps line rates on data and expansion planes.

The Chassis and Backplane thrive in operating temperatures up to 55°C, and in challenging humidity, vibration, and shock environments.
