E8404A Enhanced Monitoring
The E8404A enhanced monitoring is message based, allowing easy communication
with the mainframe for the user over RS-232 or through the VXIbus. SCPI commands are used to address the mainframe.
On the E8404A, temperature monitoring includes module exhaust temperatures at three points on every slot, power
supply temperature and ambient temperature. Measurements at the front, center and rear of every slot provide
an accurate assessment of the temperature fluctuations over a variety of cards, whose hottest components may
vary in position. Display screens are provided for overall temperature map, temperature limits set, stripcharts
and histograms of each slot.
Easy Maintenance Rear-Accessible Power Supply and Impeller
Convenient access to the power supply and cooling systems of all three
mainframes, and the monitoring system of the E8404A, is provided through the mainframe’s rear panel. A replacement
power supply or fan can be installed without removing the mainframe from a rack. The power supply’s plug-in
design makes repair easy. The E8404A monitor control board and the impeller for module cooling are easily replaced.
The internal fan for the power supply, an integral part of the supply, is easily replaced with the power supply
itself. If the optional Air Filter Accessory Kit is installed, air filters may be replaced without tools.
