The SMC3 is a modified version of the system monitoring board SMC2 and
has been significantly improved in terms of functionality and usability.
Among others, it is for example used in VME and CPCI systems, where it
intelligently controls the system fans. Thanks to intelligent control
algorithms, it combines maximum cooling performance with minimum noise.
The SMC3 has a wide operating voltage range of 5 to 36VDC and five digital inputs and outputs (open collector). A special feature is its ability to monitor and control up to six fans divided into three groups. It is also used to monitor up to eight system voltages and up to eight temperatures, which is particularly essential for use in high-performance systems.
To ensure the safety of a system, the system monitoring board can perform an automatic shutdown of the system in case of overtemperature, and the remote control functionality allows the system to be powered up and down via Ethernet. SMC3 is optionally available with an LED-bar or LCD-display to indicate the system status and allows easy commissioning through a smart self-learning mode.
Depending on the application and customer requirements, all control and monitoring parameters of the system monitoring board can be adapted.
To facilitate commissioning all parameters of the SMC3 can be flexibly adjusted through a small software tool by the user.
