Optima Offers Rugged Transit Rack Cases
FREMONT, California, - Optima EPS, an Elma Company, a leading designer and manufacturer of cabinet enclosures, has announced new transit rack cases for safe and reliable transport of electronic systems in rugged environments. The first in the line of the company's E-TR cases come in 4U and 12U heights.
Optima's E-TR transit rack cases feature superior shock/vibration and extreme environment protection. Compliant to MIL-STD 810F and rated to IP65, the cases are stable in temperatures from -40°F to +158°F. They combine the resilience of a rotomolded case with a stainless steel 19" rack frame supported on anti-vibration mounts.
The transit cases have an enhanced sway space between the inner frame and outer case to prevent contact with container shell. The inner frame is adjustable allowing for increased depth from both the front and/or the rear side for front panel, rear wiring or connector spacing needs. The racks have positive stacking, aligning flush at the front face regardless of the rack depth. Other features include ergonomic injection-molded carrying handles, optional cooling units, and a wide range of accessories.
The Optima transit cases come in black or green colors standard. Customized colors and case sizes are available upon request. Pricing for the cases depend on size, volume, and configuration. Lead-time is 2-4 weeks ARO.
