One Stop Systems Introduces Ruggedized System for Military Airborne Applications

Reliability and Performance Under the Harshest of Conditions

One Stop Systems introduces its highly-ruggedized system enclosure for military and airborne applications. Constructed of solid seam-welded aluminum, the 11U high enclosure measures 19" (H) x 25" (D) x 17" (W) and weighs 56 pounds. It contains a 3U 15-slot CPCI backplane and features a "floating" card cage that sits within the enclosure and is surrounded by four banks of looped cable isolators. Dampening clips in the card cage guides provide additional insulation to ensure reliability and performance under the harshest of conditions. The chassis is fully customizable and allows rack-slides for any combination of boards and backplanes. The enclosure suppresses electromagnetic interference from both within and without. EMI suppression can be found in such features as EMI honeycomb filters over the air intake and exhaust, perforated EMI and baffle plates surrounding the card cage, EMI-gasketed front panels, twisted pair EMI-shielded cables, and even specially coated EMI lenses for the LEDs. CompactPCI backplanes have also been designed to suppress EMI emissions.

The enclosure supports up to six high CFM cooling fans that provide full-system convection cooling. AC power is supplied through an EMI-shielded AC receptacle at the rear of the chassis, wired via a Teflon-insulated cable to the AC circuit breaker at the front of the chassis. This AC breaker, insulated by an EMI cover, functions as the main power switch to the system. Similarly, each I/O connector is shielded. One Stop Systems Escondido, Calif.
