3U VPX Air-Flow-Through (AFT) Solutions video

With component power, overall module power, and heat density continuing to increase, Curtiss-Wright is leading the way in rugged, 3U VPX Air-Flow-Through technology with our 3U AFT chassis. This video looks at how AFT cooling works.

For systems requiring high power densities, AFT cooling is one of the most reliable active cooling solutions. By providing a thermal path of the least possible resistance, an AFT-cooled chassis can deliver the following features:

  • Cooling capacity of up to 100W per slot in 3U or 200W per slot in 6U
  • Environmental sealing to accommodate the harshest environments
  • Cooling without exotic materials or fluids associated with liquid or evaporative cooling
