Portable Ethernet chassis available in smaller version

Paul Boughton
Adept Scientific is releasing United Electronic Industries’ (UEI) (Walpole, MA) DNR-6-1G 6-slot, portable, Ethernet I/O chassis. 

Developed in response to customer requests for a smaller version of the popular DNR-12-1G RACKtangle 12-slot front-access 3U chassis, the DNR-6-1G offers all the features of the 12-slot model in a half-rack-width configuration.

As the DNR-6-1G is electrically compatible with the ‘Cube’ form factors all of the I/O boards available in the cube form factor are also available for the DNR-6-1G. With over 30 I/O modules available there will be a configuration ideally suited for almost any application requirement. 

The HalfRACK’s six I/O slots provide up to: 150 analogue inputs, 192 analogue outputs, 288 digital I/O, 48 counter or quadrature channels, 72 ARINC-429 channels and/or 24 Serial or CAN-bus ports.  A full description of the DNR-6-1G product line is available at (adept weblink)

Software for the DNR-6-1G is provided in the UEIDAQ Framework.  The Framework provides a comprehensive, easy to use API that supports all popular programming and operating systems such as Windows, Vista, Linux and most real-time operating systems (e.g., QNX, RTX, RT Linux).  In addition, the board is fully supported by LabVIEW, MATLAB/Simulink, DASYLab or any application that supports ActiveX, OPC or Modbus TCP control.

“The HalfRACK is a prime example of UEI’s long-time policy of listening to the voice of the customer”, says UEI President Shaun Miller. “When we introduced the 12-slot RACKtangle product last year customer response was overwhelmingly positive but we soon found that many users who wanted the performance features of the 12-slot unit really needed a package with a smaller footprint.  That’s why we are now introducing the 6-slot DNR-6-1G.”
