The TRC4014 is a rackmount chassis that features two 5.25″ vertical drive bays that may be populated with up to twelve storage drives.  Board configuration options for this system includes either a single or dual-processor single board computer and a 14-slot backplane or a choice of either a uATX, or EATX embedded motherboard.  This 19″ industrial rackmount computer features a lightweight, yet rugged design using a shallow depth 20″ aluminum enclosure.  Power supply options include a fixed, single ATX/EPS or removable mini-redundant power supplies.



System Fan Control

The FSC1400 simultaneously controls and monitors tach pulses from up to four system fans.  The controller also accepts fan speed commands (including on/off) and provides individual pass/fail fan status via an I2C interface to the computer’s PICMG 1.3 system host board.  Fan speed can also be based on temperature via the provided thermal sensor.

See the FSC1400 System Fan Speed Controller datasheet for additional details on system fan control operation.
