Elma Unveils Portable PXI Chassis for Instrumentation Systems

3/21/2005 - Elma Electronic Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic packaging products, has announced a new PXI chassis for instrumentation systems. The 8-slot Type 32 PXI chassis offers a portable and flexible format for easy prototyping and development.

The Type 32 PXI chassis is 17" high x 10.5" wide. It features 2 x 5.25" HH devices and a 350 W plug-in power supply with an option for dual redundancy. The unit is specifically designed for portable use and is geared toward protection from the wear-and-tear these units often face. The vinyl clad aluminum covers are scratch-resistant. An ergonomic handle allows for easy and comfortable portability. Also, rubber-soled feet prevent the chassis from marring or scratching desktops.

The PXI chassis is compliant to PXI Specification R2.0. Like all Elma Type 32 chassis, the PXI version features an option for Elma's patented EMI spoons to ensure EMC compliance. Cooling is achieved via a 90 CFM fan on the bottom of the unit. The power supply unit of the Elma PXI chassis meets the X-ray specification for DXP-PX4 systems. The chassis also has rear I/O and system monitoring options.

Elma also offers PXI chassis in its high-end Type 15 series and commercial Type 12 series chassis. Various backplane configurations are available.
