cPCI 3U Load Board

Load boards are essential in keeping any system in top running shape. As a full-system provider, Hartmann strives to not only provide the systems you need, but the supporting hardware as well.

The cPCI Load Test Board serves to simulate loads on cPCI systems. The load board switches itself off at a temperature on the topside of the load test card or in a rack at 120 degrees Celcius +/- 5K. Once cooled, it turns itself back on.
