Weld-free, rugged electronics cabinets for extreme environments introduced by Optima Stantron
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., 24 Sept. 2014. Optima Stantron in Lawrenceville, Ga., is introducing the MB-series weld-free, rugged electronics cabinets that offers increased structural integrity to withstand a variety of demanding, extreme environments.
The rugged enclosures are for use in places affected by harsh, corrosive conditions such as salt spray, as found in shipboard applications, as well as in rugged, mobile environments, such as air, ground, water and test and measurement equipment.
The modular MB-series is a set of flexible, customer tailored cabinets designed to specific application requirements. Conforming to several MIL specifications, the cabinets incorporate a heavy-duty aluminum frame with horizontal and vertical extrusions that accommodate EMI gaskets and steel corner-key inserts.
The inserts are hydraulically-crimped and mechanically fastened for added stability, and standard alodine plating on the frame contributes to the cabinets' high EMI protection.
The MB-series comes in several custom-tailored configurations. The modular concept enables common, scalable components to be quickly adapted to fit several cabinet sizes and have sets.
Design options include doors, side panels, top and bottom, cooling, I/O cabling. Specific environmental factors and equipment loads for an intended application also are incorporated into each custom cabinet.
Because the cabinets are bolted together with military-grade hardware, they can potentially be field-installed in stages for use in environments with small passageways or other obstructions.
The MB-series can be fitted with optional hard-mount or shock-isolation hardware for added resistance to environmental influences. For more information contact Optima online at www.optimastantron.com.
