Rugged 19" transit rack

6 March 2013 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

ERACK is a lightweight, 19” ruggedised aluminium electronic transit rack made by CP Cases, specifically designed for commercial and military applications when protection against physical, climatic and electromagnetic hazards are required, and where weight, strength and portability are critical issues.

ERACK benefits from patented new technology. The external container has an innovative folded rim design, which eliminates the edge extrusion and makes the case stronger, lighter and more resistant to ingress by water and dust. The internal chassis frame is supported by special mounts which protect against shock. ERACK is up to 30% lighter than other rack cases in its class, according to its manufacturer.

The system provides access to the front and rear 19” chassis via precision manufactured interchangeable lids. Each lid is secured to the rack body by front mounted quarter turn latches (allowing front and rear access when stacked). Positive location between lids and body is achieved by unique male/female extrusions which incorporate a silicon seal giving all-weather protection to IP66.

ERACK’s 19” chassis is constructed from alochromed aluminium alloy, punched with ‘burst holes’ giving enhanced lightness and rigidity. The chassis is mounted on eight elastomeric mounts, fixed to the outer casing by robust anchor plates, which are focused towards the centre of mass of the case, ensuring the electronic equipment is protected against vibration and impact.

The suspended inner chassis can move up to 50 mm independently of the outer container, and in any direction. An earthing/grounding strap is fitted to maintain conductivity between the equipment and the outer container.
