Recessed chassis for EMCs provide added protection

Embedded component solutions provider Pixus Technologies has recently announced that it offers enclosures with the subrack recessed within the enclosure frame for additional protection, including EMC considerations.

The first in the recessed series are 7U and 9U versions, which accommodate 6U pluggable boards (with 1U-3U of space for various fan/airflow configurations). Versions for 3U pluggable boards in a 4U overall height are also available. Backplanes are available in OpenVPX, CompactPCI/2.16, PCIe Gen2 or Gen3, VME64x, VXS or custom. Utilizing a modular construction, the sizes and options available are highly versatile. In many applications, engineers will utilize a portion of the subrack area for the embedded computer boards and the other section for their specialized devices. Provisions for mounting of custom devices are easily implemented in the modular enclosure.

The company's new enclosure option can be recessed in various depths depending on the customer's requirements. The design allows the subrack and boards to be completely protected inside the enclosure frame, preventing damage to the modules, limiting exposure to dust and reducing its susceptibility to EMI/RFI. An optional side or bottom-hinged door allows the case to be fully enclosed or even locked.

Cooling options for the recessed enclosure series are dependent on the application requirements. Front-to-rear or bottom-to-top cooling options are standard in the 7U to 9U sizes. A wide range of AC or DC power supplies are available. System monitoring and management is also an option.
