Vector Electronics & Technology, Inc. cPCI resistive load boards provide a means to test power generated and cooling capability of cPCI systems.

Available is either 3U or 6U, these load boards function to test a system’s cooling capability with a fixed 25W resistive load that generated necessary heat to verify chassis cooling and locates hot-spots in the chassis so airflow can be adjusted.
