MPOD Full Size Crate

Universal Multichannel Low- and High- Voltage System

WIENER presents with Mpod a new, universal multi-channel low voltage (LV) and high voltage (HV) computer controlled power supply system. Offering highest channel density the MPOD mainframe can house up to 10 plug-in modules which results in 80 up to nearly 500 individually controlled channels per mainframe. Built in a modular way MPOD consists of the mainframe / bin, a front side plug-in controller with Ethernet and USB ports, a fan tray and a power supply which is located in the back.

In order to tailor the system to individual hardware needs MPOD can be configured as "low-voltage only", "high voltage only" or "mixed configuration". Further the MPOD mainframe is configurable to have all LV / HV connectors either on the front or rear side. Different control and monitoring options are offered. The MPOD controller with a interfaces for 10/100 Ethernet, CAN bus and USB-2 provides a variety of network capabilities. Local control is available by using the optional LCD display.

Main Features

  • 8U x 19" rack mountable HV/LV chassis, compact design with ruggedized mechanics, two mounting modes:  outputs at front- or at rear side
  • New mechanical design with improved bottom to top cooling air flow!
  • Modular construction: fan tray and primary power supply easily removed
  • Up to 10 LV or HV modules per chassis, high voltage modules with 8 …48 channels of 500V … 20kV,  8 channel low voltage  modules of  0 - 8V … 0 - 120V ranges
  • Mpod Controller with Ethernet, CAN-bus, USB interface, and interlock input
