Protection for maritime electronics

Foremost Electronics has announced a range of enclosures providing rugged protection of electronic systems for shipboard naval systems and maritime electronic equipment. Applications include shipboard targeting radar, anti-submarine systems, communications equipment and control and monitoring equipment.

Foremost’s NVent Schroff products offer robust 19in cabinets that meet MIL-S-901D. Their characteristics help systems builders meet stringent shock and vibration resistance requirements on the high seas. The Schroff Varistar platform offers simple system development and high integration capability.

A cabinet for individual requirements can be developed and validated by numerical simulation, saving lengthy and expensive laboratory tests. The elastic suspension is adapted to the mechanical environment and resilience of components. The cabinet’s dimensions and weight can be tailored to specific integration requirements. The final design is further validated using a model calibrated by real tests using a finite element calculation.
