Optima EPS, an Elma Company, offers several design services for its cabinet enclosures. These include thermal simulation, structural analysis, environmental testing, agency approvals, and more. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics and finite testing, Optima can identify potential hot spots in the cabinet. From there, Optima can use a combination of techniques to resolve the issue. These include fan placement and type, heat exchangers, blocking or redirecting airflow, and more. Customers can be assured of a cooling solution that meets their specifications.
Optima can also provide structural analysis and environmental testing. Using the latest equipment and software, the company can ensure the cabinets can pass the specifications for shock and vibration, maximum loads, and more. Also, the humidity, salt fog, corrosion, and temperature stresses can be measured.
The simulation and testing can be performed on Optima’s various cabinet enclosure styles. The company offers cabinets for Mil/Aero, EMC, Harsh Environments, Seismic, Telecom/DataCom, Industrial, and Medical applications. Optima specialize in customization and modifications to its base platforms – in any volume.
Lead-time is typically 2 weeks ARO.
