Elma Electronic Introduces Conduction Cooled ATR Enclosures

6/13/2005 - Elma Electronic Inc, a proven innovator of ruggedized, modular, COTS system platforms has expanded its ATR (Air Transport Rack) enclosures line with new conduction cooled versions. Conduction cooled ATRs are commonly used in applications where the enclosure is sealed or in high altitudes.

With an environmentally sealed enclosure or in high altitudes, there is often not enough airflow for convection cooling. Conduction cooled ATRs have a machined card cage accommodating wedge locks that transfer the heat. Compliant to ARINC 404A specifications, the Elma conduction cooled ATR has been optimized for cooling via thermal simulation studies. The temperature operating range is -40C to +70C degrees.

The conduction cooled ATR was optimized for low weight, ideal for Avionics applications where weight is a critical issue. Designed for 3U cards, the chassis has backplane options in cPCI, VME, or customized versions. Versions for 6U cards are also available. All Elma conduction cooled ATRs meet the IEEE 1101.2 specification.

The chassis also features a MIL 38999 type power connector with an integrated line filter. The power supply and line filter combination are optimized to meet MIL-STD 461E. The rugged aluminum dip-brazed construction is designed to meet MIL-STD 810F for shock and vibration. Elma also offers a line of standard convection-cooled ATRs that come in 1/2, 3/4, 1 and 1-1/2 ATR tall long formats per ARINC 404A specifications.

The lead-time is 12 weeks.
