LITTLETON, MA – May 24, 2011 — Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems (CWCES), a business group of Curtiss-Wright Controls and a leading designer and manufacturer of rugged deployed subsystems for the aerospace, defense and commercial market, has introduced two new 20-slot 0.8” pitch or 16-slot 1.0” pitch 6U payload forced air-cooled enclosures for rugged deployed military embedded systems. The RM810 chassis are the newest member of Electronic Systems’ Hybricon® family of advanced military COTS electronic packaging solutions. These rugged rack mount-style enclosures supports power supplies up to 1800W and provides cooling for greater than 150W per slot to ensure optimal performance for the most demanding high power mobile applications.
“These rugged chassis are designed for challenging in-the-field high performance applications,” said David Dietz, vice president and general manager of Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems group. “With cooling capacity exceeding 150W per slot, the RM810s are ideal for deploying advanced processor systems in harsh military environments.”
The RM810 19” rack mount enclosures are 8U-10U high forced air-cooled deployable chassis. It can be configured with a wide range of open standard backplane architectures, including VITA 1.7/VME64x, VME, VXS, PICMG 2.16, VPX, and OpenVPX.
The RM810-8T measures 13.97″ (8U) high, 19” wide, and 22” deep. The RM810-10F measures 17.47” (10U) high, 19” wide, and 22” deep. The card cage is constructed of precision grade aluminum.
