Test and Development Chassis Platforms designed for lab use, product development or application demonstrations

Elma Electronic

Does your embedded system development chassis enable easy access to the payload cards and backplane connections for easy debugging and test probing? That's exactly what Elma's family of Type 39 E-Frame open access chassis provides.

Taking a new board level product or system from concept to deliverable requires feature rich development and testing tools. Elma's Type 39 E-Frame development chassis for VITA and bus architectures provide the platforms necessary to meet that need. The Type 39E Frame enclosure is ideal for lab development and provides open accesses for probing, debugging cards, system integration and application development. Type 39 E-Frames can be configured with backplanes from our inventory including options supporting VME, VME64X, , , cPCI Serial and VXS embedded form factors in 3U and 6U. Power supply options include both slot based pluggable units and chassis mount configurations meeting a range of voltage requirements. Slot counts can be configured in chassis widths of 49HP and 84HP. High CFM fan cooling solutions plus optional conduction cooling slot inserts ensure your board set will remain at an acceptable operating temperature. System monitoring solutions are also available with the Type 39 E-Frame.
