Elma Electronic – Rugged Design Comes in Many Forms

Elma is the defacto leader in electronic packaging for COTS based computer architectures. Our platforms cover the gamut from 19” rackmount crates for benign environments to ruggedized, shock-isolated chassis platforms, to tough ATR enclosures in all sizes for harsh environments.

System Platforms
Elma’s rugged platforms are designed and tested to meet MIL-STDs such as 810F, 901D, and 167. Most units ship with MOSA compliant backplanes to support CompactPCI, VME, VPX, and ATCA. The right power and cooling scheme for the application is designed into the unit, then fully tested before shipment.

In addition to the packaging, Elma’s line of board-level products and embedded systems expertise is unparalleled. Using in-house and best in class partner products, we can design a truly interoperable embedded system to meet project requirements. Elma’s uniquely calibrated in-house manufacturing enables us to deliver quality tailored solutions in low to higher volumes while maintaining competitive prices.


Cabinet Enclosures & Consoles
Elma also specializes in Mil/Aero rugged cabinet enclosure designs through our Optima EPS division. The Optima M series Cabinet System is a unique modular construction designed to exceed military standards and adapt to equipment-mounting and protection needs of virtually any electronic system. It accom­modates customer specific requirements for EMC shielding, shock and vibration, mobility, thermal management, power distribu­tion/conditioning and I/O cabling per the applicable MIL-STDs. Because custom designs are based on proven design concepts the cost, schedule and performance risks are substantially reduced.

Optima also provides desk systems and consoles for defense appli­cations. The designs feature shock mounting, EMI/RFI shielding, thicker gauge materials and other ruggedization provisions.


Backplanes and Carrier Cards
Elma Bustronic is renowned for its high-performance designs for Mil/Aero applications. The company designs to COTS standard and custom architectures such as VMEVME, VXS, VPX, cPCI, ATCA and COM Express. Additional design considerations are conformal coating for protection, stiffeners, and special power or shielding options.


Elma’s extensive range of components for defense applications includes front panels, handles, switches and encoders. When it comes to mission-critical applications, Elma’s rugged reliable components are a must. With intelligent design, quality rugged materials, and precision manufacturing, Elma’s designs are robust and long-lasting.
