cPCI Locking Ejectors Feature Pushbutton Mechanism

The cPCI-E3 series CompactPCI locking ejectors feature a pushbutton mechanism that is said to ensure easy, positive locking of boards. The ejector's mechanical locking mechanism employs a polymeric spring that engages the hinge block at strategic positions across its length. The pushbutton, which is located on the top surface of the ejector, is depressed to release the locking mechanism, allowing for insertion and extraction of the boards. The locking design combined with special chamfered teeth promise to eliminate wear issues associated with traditional types of cPCI ejector systems. The ejectors can withstanding over 60 lb. of unreleased downward force before disengaging or damaging the ejector, compared to less than 5 lb. in typical non-pushbutton locking ejectors. The cPCI-E3 series complies with IEEE 1101.10 and PICMG 2.0 Compact PCI specs. Prices range from $2.29 each in production. For more information, contact BIVAR INC., Irvine, CA. (800) 772-2377.
