Actum appointed as Schroff distributor

18 May 2005 News

Actum Electronics has been appointed as the exclusive Schroff representative for South Africa. Schroff is a leading manufacturer of high quality protection and packaging solutions for the electronics sector of over 40 years. Based on globally, standardised subracks, cases and cabinet systems, the company has the ability to design and build complete packaging solutions, and is also widely acknowledged as an expert in 19" technology.

Schroff is part of the Pentair Enclosures Group, a Minnesota-based diversified manufacturer operating in tools, water technologies and enclosures markets.

The company's products are distinguished by robust construction that resists environmental conditions. Also, the basic engineering of Schroff products contains EMC protection, shock and vibration stability, as well as ease of operation. Some types of products the company manufactures include: cabinets for electronics, IT, datacoms and outdoor use; system cases; AdvancedTCA systems; cabling; and CompactPCI and VME systems.

Schroff is able to make customer-specific modifications quickly and efficiently, based on their product platforms. As a result, it says product launch times are considerably shortened. Development costs are minimised because some 80% of the task is eliminated through the use of standard Schroff products.

Schroff's 'systems integration' capabilities allows it to combine basic components, like cabling, climate control, and power supplies, inside a cabinet or enclosure - regardless of complexity. The company offers customers plug-and-play products for 19" technology from a single source, while avoiding interface problems, allowing these customers to concentrate on their own core competencies.
