The case of electronics enclosures stacks up
Adapting its RiCase enclosures, Pixus Technologies offers a configuration that is stackable. The embedded computing and enclosure specialist has announced the instrumentation cases with interlacing tabs that provide a secure connection and which ensure that stacked units do not fall.
The RiCase enclosures have optional carry handles on the top edge of the box. There are three standard trim colours, and all enclosures have rounded edges. The RiCase series is available in sizes ranging from 1U to 12U heights with three depth options and 480 or 240mm (19 or 9.5 inch) widths. The rugged enclosures have a high strength-to-weight ratio, continued Pixus. Other options include customisable front and rear doors, silk-screening services and modular mounting kits.
Pixus offers instrumentation cases, backplane-based enclosures systems, and components. The enclosure systems are used in a wide range of applications, including defence, industrial, medical, oil & gas, test and measurement.
Pixus Technologies specialises in electronics packaging. Founded in 2009 by senior management from Kaparel Corporation, a Rittal company, Pixus Technologies’ embedded backplanes and systems are focused primarily on ATCA, OpenVPX, MicroTCA, and custom designs.
Pixus also has an extensive offering of VME-based and cPCI-based solutions.
