Pentair presents subracks for high shock and vibration requirements

Posted: September 30, 2015

Subracks are subjected to a wide variety of demands in terms of mechanical stability in certain applications ̶ shock and vibration resistance for example. Pentair has addressed this challenge by offering Schroff subracks for shock and vibration requirements between 5 and 25g as part of its standard product portfolio.

These subracks are designed for use in fields including transport, rail, industrial (eg, close to rotating machines), power stations, and defence technology.

This product line is compliant with all applicable industry standards and feature self-locking fixing screws, special rounded corners and edges (e.g, on the 19″ brackets) and an additional top cover, locking for access protection. This also ensures that safety and sound insulation requirements are fulfilled. The subracks can be equipped with guide rails for conduction-cooled assemblies.

Pentair is one of the first in the market to offer its worldwide customers an EMC (electromagnetically compatible) textile gasket that extends temperature range from -40°C to +85°C and are easier to use whilst maintain cost efficiency.

With designers and hardware developers in mind, the 3D CAD data for the subracks can be downloaded from the TraceParts online platform free of charge. Customers are able to access 32 different native CAD data formats, which can then be used directly in their own CAD application. If the user does not have a CAD system or CAD viewer, 3D perspectives of the products can also be downloaded. As part of a special promotion, Pentair is offering customers the opportunity to order a free sample from the standard range of subracks, cases, and front panels until the end of October 2015.For more information contact: [email protected]
