Elma Electronic Inc., a manufacturer of electronic packaging products, has developed a rugged COTS VXI enclosure for instrumentation systems.

According to the company, the device is ideal for airborne, shipboard or ground mobile applications where VXI for instrumentation is utilized.

The 5U VXI 12R2 chassis allows six cards in the size "C" 6U x 340mm format to be loaded (up to 13 slots is optional in other size chassis). Elma added that the horizontal-loading orientation of the chassis saves rack space.

As with all of the company's COTS enclosures, the VXI units are designed to withstand the harsh demands of a military environment and use honeycomb filters, braided gasketing and metal impregnated sheets to seal off all external seems. Various options of rope-coil isolators, air springs, and elastomeric isolators are available for shock and vibration. The 12R2 chassis can withstand up to 25 G's of force.

Features of the VXI 12R2 line include a large patch panel for I/O located on the rear of the chassis, 2 handles per side for easy lifting and power supplies for up to 750W to 1,000W. Standard power supply voltages are 24V, 12V, 5V and 3.3V, and system monitoring LEDs for dc voltages, overtemperature and fan fail are included.

Pricing for the 5U VXI 12R2 starts under $5,000.
