The WaveTherm 3U VPX Hybrid-Cooled Thermal Load-Board Module is a cost-effective solution for thermal testing of rugged or Mil-Spec enclosures and systems using wedge locks and air-flow cooling methods concurrently.
The WaveTherm OpenCOTS Load Board PCB enables several variants of the Hybrid SolidWedge wedgelock which maximizes conduction-cooling characteristics while simultaneously offering maximum, unobstructed air-flow over the finned, conduction-cooled module.
The SolidWedge's distinctive feature of lacking a long center drive screw or long center rail used for traditional wedgelock segment alignment, facilitates a design which produces equal force distribution of the module in the cold wall slot(front to rear), maximizes contact surface area, while offering the unimpeded air-flow through the wedgelocks and across the finned, conduction-cooled module.
International standards organizations have initiated and produced publicly available test data that definitively suggests that this cooling method results in a 15%-30% increase in thermal capacity, while exceeding common military-spec shake and vibration requirements.
