The purpose of the power panel is to provide a point for
distributing the low voltage power for ten separate CMS Hybrid Test
Stands and two CCU units which make up the Vienna Box Environmental
Chamber. The panel mounts in a 19 inch rack and
receives plus 6.0 volts and minus 6.0 volts from a pair of high current
power supplies and divides the loads into lower current fused branches
as shown on the schematic
. The panel input is fused at 20 amps with 1.5 amps for the 12
each plus 6 volt and 1/2 amp for the 12 each minus 6 volt
The power panel is currently in use with
Vienna Box test stand, the panels were fabricated by Andrea. To date,
three panels have been built, the third uses low current LEDs rather
than the high current incandescent lamps. The last panel is being used
at UC Riverside.
