Elma Introduces SlimKit 1U EMC Enclosure

Elma Electronic Inc, a global manufacturer of electronic packaging products, has announced its new 19″ EMC enclosure in a 1U height, called the “SlimKit.” The enclosure combines a slim profile, EMC performance, and an efficient design. The SlimKit features excellent EMC performance without the expense of separate gaskets. Instead, EMC contacts are integrated into the sheet metal. First, the covers of the chassis have EMC tabs that provide protection. The enclosure sidewalls also have punched and formed EMC “spoons” that provides extra EMI/RFI suppression.

Elma SlimKit 1U EMC EnclosureThe enclosure design minimizes the assembly time required with only a few identical screws. Typically, enclosures require a lot of screws to minimize gaps in the chassis for EMC. As Elma’s enclosure has EMC built into the sheet metal, fewer screws are required. This saves assembly time and costs with less (and more common) parts to assemble.

The SlimKit is available in 240mm and 360mm depths and other chassis heights are available. Optional accessories include grounding terminals and tilt feet in grey or black.

Applications for the SlimKit include telecommunications systems, medical and lab instruments, event recorders, rackmount servers, audio and radio equipment, Mil/Aero communications, signal converters, and much more.

Lead-time of stock to 2 weeks.
