VME/64X Systems

Elma VME/64X systems feature a modular design and rugged, highquality construction. These chassis are available in 19” rackmount, desktop or portable tower versions, with various types available, each designed to meet the needs of specific applications. 1U – 15U heights are available with depths from 15” to 24”. Vertical or horizontal card cages accommodate 3U, 6U or 9U boards with depths from 160-400mm depths. All systems come fully assembled, wired and tested prior to shipment.

Rugged COTS Systems

The COTS 12R2 is a high quality and cost-efficient rugged package for all CompactPCI, Rugged MicroTCA, VME/VME64x, VXS, and VPX applications. The rugged product line includes 5U-14U models for both 6U and 9U cards. The 12R2 uses honeycomb filters, braided gasketing, and metal impregnated gasket sheets to seal off every external seam to ensure compliance to MIL-STD-461D. To verify that the chassis will more than meet shock and vibration requirements, the 12R2 has been tested for shock, vibration, and structural integrity per MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-167 and MIL-STD-901D. The 12R2 integrates standard offthe- shelf parts including aluminum flat frames and covers, ruggedized side plates, cross-functional extruded profiles, standard electrical components and wire harnesses to reduce lead time. The 12R2 features MIL-grade components, system monitoring LEDs, a powerful, efficient cooling system and holds up to 20 boards. A light-weight 12R1 line of chassis is also available. They contain many of the same features as the 12R2, but are up to 20% lighter.

VXS and VPX Systems

The Elma VXS (VITA 41) and VPX (VITA 46/48) chassis are available in a portable tower version, open-frame test chassis, ATR or 19” rackmount. Configurations are offered for both horizontal and vertical mounting of 6U x 160mm cards. VXS backplanes are available in 5, 8, 10, 12, 18, 20, and 21 slots in Single Star, Dual Star, Switchless Mesh, Hybrid, and Custom versions. The VPX backplanes are available in 6U 5-slot and 3U 6- slot sizes. Hybrid versions with legacy VME64x slots are also available.

ATR (Air Transport Rack)

The Elma ATR for COTS is convection cooled and available in sizes 1/2, 3/4, 1, or 1 1/2 ATR per ARINC 404A. Architecture formats include CompactPCI, Rugged MicroTCA, VME, VXS, VPX, and Custom, all built with a modular design to ensure easy customization with minimum cost and lead time. There are 2 chassis depths available with capacity for 5, 7, 12 or 15 slots, 6U x 160mm. The ATR features advanced airflow distribution, removable front panels, rear panels, and top and bottom covers. Designed to meet MIL-STD’s 5400, 810E, 461E, 704A, 275A, the Elma ATR family is ideal for use with commercially available cards in airborne, ground mobile or shipboard applications. Conduction cooled ATRs are also available.

Elma’s Liquid-cooled ATRs feature a modular design and are available in various configurations. The liquid runs through the sidewalls of the chassis, providing superior heat dissipation for conduction cooled cards. Providing up to 150W/slot of cooling, this design is a much easier, simple, and cost-effective solution than liquid-through-module solutions.
