MPOD Mix Crate

Mpod with integrated bus

Mpod EC and LX models can be customized to integrate a Wiener or a custom 3U to 6U bus backplane (VME, VME64x, cPCI, …). All voltages required from the backplane specifications are provided. When no rear transition modules are needed, these compact solutions allow saving money and space by reducing the number of needed crates, i.e. combining power supply with DAQ.

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. A combo interface with 10/100 Ethernet, CAN bus and USB-2 provides a variety of network capabilities. Local control is available by using the LCD display.


  • 19″ rack mountable bin with module cage for 10 LV or HV modules, Ruggedized mechanics
  • Two mounting modes:  outputs at front- or at rear side
  • 8U bin for bottom cooling air intake, 9U high for front air intake, optional with dust filter
  • Modular design: fan tray and primary power supply easily removed
  • Module size 6U x 8PU, 220mm deep
  • LV and HV modules freely pluggable
  • High Voltage modules with 8, 16 or 32 channels of 0,5kV … 6kV, floating or common ground, up to 480 HV channels  per Mpod- mainframe possible
  • High precision modules
  • Resolution 12 bit (LV), 16/20 bit (HV)
  • LV/HV Controller with Ethernet, CANbus, USB interface, and interlock input
  • OPC server for TCP/IP
  • 94V – 265VAC world-wide auto-range AC input, with power factor correction, CE
  • Graphic display for monitoring and programming, single rotary/push- button operated (optional)
  • Dimensions: 19” x 460mm (depth) x 8U (bottom air intake) or 9U (front air intake)
  • Weight: ca. 20 Kg, depending on options
