Optima Stantron (Lawrenceville, GA) has announced they have designed and successfully tested cabinets to meet both North American (AREMA) and European (CENELEC) railway standards.  The cabinets passed all testing to qualify for use in railway applications where high vibration and shock conditions occur. The welded and riveted frame was designed by modifying Optima’s standard M1 cabinet frame design. The cabinet had to meet a customer’s specific requirements for AREMA Part 11.5.1 Class I – Vehicle Interior (Platform-Mounted), which examines the operation of electronics inside locomotive spaces. Standards meet:

  • NEBS Leval 3 zone 4 - Seismic.
  • GR-63-CORE.
  • MIL-STD: 901D - Shipboard shock/vib.
  • MIL-STD: 810F Shock.
  • MIL-STD: 167 - Vibration.
  • MIL-STD: 461 - EMC.
