Elma Electronic Systems division has released a new half ATR conduction-convection cooled enclosure with a unique, advanced airflow design that distributes air across external fins in sidewalls.

  This new configuration helps to ensure fast removal of dissipated heat, yet still maintain a low profile design. It ships with a 6-slot 3U OpenVPX (VITA 65) backplane on 1" pitch; it is also available with either a 3U cPCI backplane or a single-width MicroTCA backplane. The unit also offers the choice of a fixed mount or plug-in 28 VDC power supply.

  Elma's half ATR box is ideal for projects with weight restrictions; the unit weighs only 12.5 pounds prior to power supply or payload. The all-aluminum ATR is made from milled plates as well as punched and formed sheet metal. The main body is dip-brazed for optimum heat conductivity. The conduction-cooled card cage is completely sealed off to keep the electronic components in a clean environment.

  A removable front panel allows I/O customization to exact application requirements. Narrow screw spacing ensures high EMC shielding compliant to MIL-STD 461E.  The enclosure meets ARINC 404A and ANSI/VITA 48.2 standards.

  Pricing for the new 1/2 ATR configuration starts at $15,000 in low quantities.  Delivery is 6-8 weeks ARO.
