Our sub-racks feature two main types of construction: aluminum extrusion or sheet metal based. Extrusion based sub-racks offer rigid construction and a high strength to weight ratio. Sheet metal sub-racks are available in either aluminum or steel and allow for a high degree of customization.
Several varieties of card guides are available. In metal guides are formed directly in the material and offer light weight and low cost. They are available with or without a PCB “lead in.” The lead in helps guide the boards into the correct position as they are inserted.
Plastic card guides are available in both English and metric dimensions. Anti-vibration versions are available. This style features a small finger of plastic that helps grip the board and limit vibration. All plastic guides have a 94V-O flammability rating for regulatory compliance.
Custom front panels are available for any sub-rack. Total customization is available including cutouts, hardware, custom paint, finishing and silk screened labeling.
Your sub-rack/card cage can be finished in variety of ways. From various anodized finished for aluminum chassis, to color matching in both wet and powder paint, we can deliver your chassis with the finish you require.
A wide variety of other features are available including chassis handles, wire management features, ventilation and shielding.
