Southco’s New Inject/Eject Handle Set Provides A Complete Solution For Hot Swap Function Protection

P7 Inject/Eject Mechanisms

Southco's new P7 Inject/Eject Handle Set is a complete solution including upper and lower latches and a switch arm, designed to mount to a faceplate accessible from the front of a system, allowing hot swap functionality. Hot swappable systems are crucial in managing the safety of stored data; if one system is down and running without a backup, the data is at risk until maintenance can restore redundancy.

 

Ejector systems like Southco's P7 series provide the correct amount of "wipe" by ensuring that board connectors interface properly with the backplane of the shelf. When the P7 lever is released, a signal is sent by the integral micro-switch, which in turn releases that data successfully to a redundant line card, allowing the faulty card to be serviced or swapped out.

Southco is the leading supplier of front panel hardware with expertise in the functionality, flexibility, ergonomics and technicalities of PICMG standards affecting AdvancedTCA® (ATCA), AdvancedMC™ (AMC), and MicroTCA®. As a member of PICMG, Southco has developed a full range of products including ejector handles, alignment/keying blocks and captive retention screws in accordance with their standards.

 

Global Product Manager Jim Grady adds, "The P7 Inject/Eject Handle Set is a complete solution providing hot swap function protection, ensuring communication with application servers to avoid interruption when carriers holding AMC modules are removed for service."
