Tera 100 super computer uses 2907 server slide

The Tera 100 super computer is made of 220 electronic enclosures, each enclosure containing 20 servers. The Tera 100 programme is the result of a close collaboration between Bull and the Military Applications Department of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy (the CEA).

This computer is used for the CEA/Military Applications Division Simulation program and is the most powerful system ever designed and developed in Europe.

Access to each of the servers required reliable electronic enclosure slides.

Accuride’s 2907 server slide was selected for its low profile. It carries loads up to 55kg and has full extension movement plus 51mm of over travel giving easy access to the front, back, and sides of the chassis.

Server slide with lock-out feature

The product includes a lock-out function to hold the chassis stable while servicing. A lever disconnect provides trouble-free chassis removal and reinsertion.

The 2907 is just one of Accuride’s off the shelf enclosure slide range. Bracket mounting kits can be bought separately for added flexibility. The kits include front and rear brackets, bar nuts and screws. Cable carriers complete the offer.
