Handles and panels for 3U, 6U, 9U, and custom embedded computing boards introduced by Pixus

WATERLOO, Ontario, 9 April 2012. Pixus Technologies in Waterloo, Ontario, is introducing handle and panel sets in various styles for embedded computing boards for military embedded systems and other embedded computing applications. The handle and panel sets come in 3U, 6U, 9U, and custom sizes.

The Pixus handle and panel sets feature IEEE handles often used in CompactPCI, VME64x, and OpenVPX applications. The panels are 4HP for 0.8-inch boards, 5HP for 1-inch boards, and up to 12HP for power supply unit (PSU) versions and special requirements. 6HP and 8HP also are common sizes.

The panels have offset spacing options as required by some of the Eurocard-based specifications. Pixus also offers IEC handle and panel sets for VME and other applications, as well as low-profile handles for telecom and PSU boards.

The injector and ejector handles are ergonomically designed and rugged, with custom color options. They come in hot-swap, non-hot-swap, EMC, latching, and non-latching options. Also optional are microswitches for live insertion applications. Elecrostatic discharge (ESD) pins are standard to dissipate static charges before complete insertion of the board, PSU, or other device.

Panel customization is optional, including various high-precision milling or stamped cutouts. Silkscreen, painting, and digital printing also are optional.
