Description

Overview

CanTainer PC104 Enclosure System

The CanTainer is a rugged PC/104 enclosure system constructed of .125" aluminum and designed for hostile and mobile environments. It features a dual system of shock and vibration isolation: The PC/104 modules are mounted axially in the enclosure with four internal rubber corner rails to absorb high-frequency vibrations, while the entire enclosure is mounted on the host platform with a thick rubber pad which absorbs low-frequency G-forces. The rubber pad may be removed for optional mounting solutions such as hard mounting, flange endcap, or fluidic mount assembly.

The CanTainer enclosure cross section measures 6.00" wide by 5.45" high (not including mounting pad) and is designed to mount PC/104 boards axially along the entire length of the enclosure body. The enclosure is available in standard lengths from 2" and 12" with custom lengths up to 48".

To mount non PC/104 boards or items such as hard drives that are larger than 3.550" x 3.775", there is an optional septum plate. These install vertically into rails that run the length of the enclosure. For smaller items, an optional PC/104-size aluminum plate allows for direct mounting in the PC/104 stack. Each CanTainer is available as a kit with mounting accessories.  Blank and pre-designed endcaps are available separately, or the customer may design their own cutouts using one of our CanTainer endcap templates.  These rugged enclosures have been protecting PC104 systems all over the world in the harshest environments the mining, transportation, military, and aerospace industries have to offer.
