These card frames utilize a patented design which provides a durable, ruggedized assembly featuring an extruded panel of card guides. These card guides are on 0.80” pitch and can support PCBs up to 400mm in depth. The assembly is very resistant to shock and vibration making it an ideal choice for harsh commercial, industrial and military applications. Unlike plastic card guide systems, these all-aluminum card frames eliminate the problem of guide flexing and breakage.
MAXAIR VME Card Frames
MaxAir™ VME Card Frames are designed to achieve very efficient cooling and provide up to 20% lower forced air back pressure as compared to competitive models with plastic card guides.
Rugged VME Card Frames
Rugged VME Card Frames are recommended for applications that may be exposed to extreme shock and vibration environments. The extra wide front and rear rail extrusions are mounted to the side plates with two stainless steel mounting screws at each end and provide a solid structure to guide and secure the cards. The extra wide front and rear extrusions also resist bowing when inserting or extracting cards in large 400mm card frames.
