MediaStar Single Slot Appliance Chassis with Integral Power Supply (769)
Modules supported include MediaStar Encoders, LAN-Casters, Re-Casters and Multi-Mux units which are supplied separately to the rack enclosure.
The rack is fitted with a single power supply unit (part no. 768). This converts the AC mains input voltage to low voltage DC power for the processor module and a thermostatically controlled fan for cooling the rack and installed "blade".
Both output power rails and fan are monitored, and if any problems are detected, the power supply will alert the installed processor module, which will show a warning on its front panel and send a IP warning message to the Media Manager administration system and optionally a corporate SNMP monitoring system.
When a processor module is fitted into the rack, its RF and Video/Audio inputs are accessible from the rear side, and network and control interfaces are available on the face. AC mains input to the rack is via an IEC connector on the rear.
When used in conjunction with the single or dual module 1RU rack mount kits (parts 769-RMK-S or D) the chassis can be mounted into a standard 19” rack mount cabinet.
Spare power supply units are available (part 768-RP).
