Rugged Slide Rails from Elma Withstand Heavier Loads, Shock and Vibration
FREMONT, California, May. 12, 2003 - Elma Electronic Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic packaging products has announced new chassis/cabinet mounted slide rails that are ultra rugged. The rails hold significantly more weight and can withstand shock and vibration in harsh environments.
Elma's new rugged slide rails come in three sections: an outer-mounting bracket to the cabinet, an inner-mounting bracket to the chassis, and a center-sliding member. The rails are designed to withstand significant weight and shock force for rugged environments. With a robust 10mm thickness, the rails are specially designed to handle up to 220 lbs. The brackets extend from a min length of 580mm to a max of 800mm with rollers providing smooth movement.
The rails also securely lock in the fully extended position for foolproof stopping when pulling out the enclosure. A quick-disconnect feature with levers then allows the chassis to be removed from the cabinet with ease.
The thick mounting brackets have dual sets of holes for extra strength and durability. The rugged rear brackets attach to the exterior rail members in adjustable locations to accommodate various cabinet depths.
Elma's Rugged Slide Rails can be purchased separately and/or with the company's extensive line of Rugged COTS enclosures. Pricing starts at $375.00 with a stock to 2 week lead time.
