Modular housings for small form factor boards

13 September 2017 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

Pentair has developed a new concept which enables design engineers to quickly create customised solutions to house and protect their small form factor boards, while minimising development costs and lead time.

Using a modular approach, engineers can specify their enclosure, cooling, peripheral components and mounting method based on the needs of their specific application. Each building block can easily be configured and combined, resulting in a customised solution ready for manufacture.

The design starts with Pentair’s Schroff Interscale enclosure, which features integrated EMC protection, requires only two screws for assembly, and has flexible height, width and depth dimensions. For customers working with industrial PC board standards such as MiniITX, ATX, embeddedNUC and others, the cut-outs have been prepopulated in the design to save time.

The cooling module includes options for conduction and convection cooling. FHCs (flexible heat conductors) provide enhanced conduction cooling performance and design engineers have options for heatsink height and orientation. For convection cooling, one- and two-fan configurations are available, with a variety of fan location and perforation options.

Compatible components including industrial grade power supplies, power switches and indicators, and hard disk drive brackets are available. The enclosure can be completed with wall/desk brackets, DIN rail clips, and tip-up or rubber feet.

For those customers interested in Computer on Module (COM), Pentair also offers a complete Embedded COM system including the COM module and the carrier board. This concept is also modular: For example, a wide range of fieldbus connections can be implemented using a pluggable add-on module. Using the XMC slot, FPGA mezzanines or processor modules can be connected to the COM module via the carrier or a custom circuit can be established on the prototype module. The power module is also designed as a pluggable module, making it easy to adapt to different line voltages and power outputs. For integrated system solutions the Pentair project management group supports customers directly.
