Our Internet Portal, www.vmevpx.com, enables system design engineers to quickly and easily see and compare more than 135 COTS, Modified COTS and Custom VME and VPX products.

Orbit Electronics Group has announced the availability of six new 6U products: two VME System Health Monitors, two 6U VPX System Health Monitors, and a Rear Transition Module (RTM) for each. These six products join the over 135 standard and customized VME and VPX products shown on Orbit’s web portal at http://www.vmevpx.com. All are among the most advanced such components available today. The System Health Monitors feature a unique, proprietary GUI; Ethernet, USB and/or RS 232 interfaces; set-up; data logging; field upgradable firmware; and data password protection.

VME HMC-A 6U System Health Monitors have 20 analog sensors (4 onboard and 16 external), plus 8 digital sensors. Voltage monitoring accepts 8 inputs (+3.3 VDC, +5 VDC, +12 VDC, and -12 VDC, plus four user-defined positive voltages from 0VDC to +28 VDC. This unit provides dramatically expanded graphical user interfaces that enable design teams to quickly and easily establish a broad range of operating parameters.

VME HMC-B 6U System Health Monitors have 9 analog sensors (1 onboard and 8 external) plus 8 digital sensors. Voltage monitoring accepts 4 inputs (+3.3 VDC, +5 VDC, +12 VDC, -12 VDC). This unit provides dramatically expanded graphical user interfaces that enable design teams to quickly and easily establish a broad range of operating parameters.

VPX HMC-A 6U System Health Monitors have 20 analog sensors (4 onboard and 16 external), plus 8 digital sensors. Voltage monitoring accepts 8 inputs (+3.3 VDC, +5 VDC, +12 VDC, and -12 VDC, plus four user-defined positive voltages from 0 VDC to +28 VDC). This unit provides dramatically expanded graphical user interfaces that enable design teams to quickly and easily establish a broad range of operating parameters.

VPX HMC-B 6U System Health Monitors have 9 analog sensors (1 onboard and 8 external) plus 8 digital sensors. Voltage monitoring accepts 4 inputs (+3.3 VDC, +5 VDC, +12 VDC, -12 VDC).

VME 6U Rear Transition Module is designed as a companion board for the VME versions of Orbit HMC-A Health Monitors. It can also be used with any VME card to provide rear I/O in any VME system. Direct mapping from the P0 and P2 connectors to the RTM connectors allows signals to be brought off the backplane to interface to external equipment.

VPX 6U Rear Transition Module is designed as a companion module for the VPX versions of Orbit HMC-A Health Monitors. It can also be used to provide rear I/O to any VPX card in any VPX system. MULTI-GIG RT-2 connectors to D Sub connectors allow signals to be brought off the backplane and interface within other system components, as well as to external equipment.

Both Orbit RTMs have locking extractors that provide secure connections even in rugged, high vibration environments.

According to Orbit Electronics Group president, Ken Ice, “With the availability of our 6U VME and VPX System Health Monitors and their companion Rear Transmission Modules, Orbit demonstrates its strong commitment to supplying system designers with the finest VME and VPX components. Our Internet Portal, http://www.vmevpx.com, enables system design engineers to quickly and easily see and compare more than 135 COTS, Modified COTS and Custom VME and VPX products.”

Vmevpx.com is the brainchild of the Orbit Electronics Group, consisting of Integrated Combat Systems (ICS), Tulip Development Laboratory, Inc. (TDL), and Orbit Instrument (OI). All three companies are divisions or subsidiaries of Orbit International. They work closely with Behlman Electronics of the Orbit Power Group, the designer and manufacturer of the 6U and 3U VPXtra™ and VME power supplies.

Orbit International Corp., based in Hauppauge, New York, is involved in the manufacture of customized electronic components and subsystems for military and nonmilitary government applications.
