Verotec Wins Contract for Modified Products

Reading time ( words)

Verotec, the US- and UK-based manufacturer of standard and custom electronics enclosures, has won a multi-year contract from a major North American manufacturer of flight simulators to supply more than 50,000 modified card cage front panels. 50 different designs of panel, in heights of 3U and 6U and in widths from 2HP to 16HP, are needed. The IEEE1101.10 compliant panels are modified variants of Verotec’s standard extruded aluminium panels.  

The 2.5mm thick extruded aluminium panels have a clear conductive chromate finish and are fitted with inject/eject handles and stainless steel EMC gaskets. Each of the 50 modified panel designs is machined and silk screened to the customer’s specification to provide the HMI and connector interfaces required for each element of the simulator control systems. To meet the requirements, Verotec has invested in excess of £120k to create an automated aluminium CAM machining centre in its Southampton, UK production facility. The investment enables complex 3D high precision machining and high volume batch processing to be undertaken.  

The modified front panels are fitted to Verotec’s KM6-HD heavy duty card cages, which offer enhanced protection against the shock and vibration generated during the operation of the flight simulators. A custom, cPCI-based backplane, also designed and supplied by Verotec, completes the enclosure and internal interconnect subsystems.

Will You Be RoHS 2-Compliant by 22 July 2017?

06/02/2017 | Danielle Olivier, JJS Manufacturing
The year 2011 saw the legal initiation of the RoHS 2 recast and an update of the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU, subsequently transpiring into UK law. The initiative granted transition periods of varying time scales to different categories of electrical and electronic equipment products. Now, 2017 sees the end of the transition period for EEE products that fall into one of the subsections of category nine – industrial monitoring and control instruments.

Meeting High-Speed Demand with Optical Circuits
