Elma Electronic Systems division, a leading supplier of
embedded products and systems solutions built on open standards-based platforms
like CompactPCI, ATCA, VME, and VPX, has released a new 1/2 ATR
conduction-convection cooled enclosure with a unique, advanced airflow design
that distributes air across external fins in sidewalls.
This new configuration helps to ensure fast removal of
dissipated heat, yet still maintain a low profile design. It ships with a
6-slot 3U OpenVPX (VITA 65) backplane on 1 in. pitch; it is also available with
either a 3U cPCI backplane or a single-width MicroTCA backplane. The unit offers
the choice of a fixed mount or plug-in 28 VDC power supply.
Elma’s 1/2 ATR box is ideal for projects with weight
restrictions as the unit weighs only 12.5 pounds prior to power supply or
The all-aluminum ATR is made from milled plates as well as
punched and formed sheet metal. The main body is dip-brazed for optimum heat
conductivity. The conduction-cooled card cage is completely sealed off to keep
the electronic components in a clean environment.
A removable front panel allows I/O customization to exact
application requirements. Narrow screw spacing ensures high EMC shielding
compliant to MIL-STD 461E. The enclosure meets ARINC 404A and ANSI/VITA 48.2
