LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Optima Stantron, a leading designer and manufacturer of electronic cabinets and racks and an Elma company, has developed a weld-free, rugged cabinet for electronics that offers increased structural integrity to withstand a variety of demanding, extreme environments. The new, 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.
Ideal uses include 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 MB-Series comes in a number of custom-tailored configurations. The modular concept enables common, scalable components to be quickly adapted to fit a number of cabinet sizes and feature sets. Design options include doors, side panels, top and bottom, cooling, I/O cabling. Specific environmental factors and equipment loads for an intended application are also incorporated into each custom cabinet.
Because the cabinets are bolted together with MIL-grade hardware, they can potentially be field-installed in stages. This is especially useful in environments with small passageways or other obstructions. In addition to its inherently rugged design, the MB-Series can be fitted with optional hard-mount or shock isolation hardware for added resistance to environmental impacts.
All the rugged features of the MB-Series are available in welded construction as well; refer to Optima's M- and MS-Series reinforced rugged cabinets.
- Modular and custom designed for each application
- Weld-free, bolted configuration withstands extreme environments
- Hard-mount or shock isolation hardware options for increased ruggedization
- Meets MIL specs: MIL-STD-901D; MIL-STD-461; MIL-STD-810F; MIL-STD-167; MIL-STD-188
Since each MB-Series cabinet is built to the customer's requirements and specifications, pricing is dependent on the final configuration. Delivery is configuration dependent.
