Flexible Mobile Equipment Rack from Optima
Stantron Protects Electronics Systems
Optima Stantron has introduced
a counter-height mobile equipment
rack. Any situation where mobile
electronic equipment is necessary
will benefit from the versatile mobile
equipment rack, the first in a family of
Optima Stantron. Applications include
broadcast video and audio production
studios, hospitals and medical/surgical
offices, educational institutions as well
as other areas where mobile electronics are widely used.
The highly modular platform enables infinite design options to accommodate the wide variety of electronics
that might be required in a mobile
cart, from cable access to cooling issues to a highly adaptable
pivoting arm for monitors or tablets.
Optima Stantron’s mobile equipment rack is constructed of a
sturdy, yet lightweight, aluminum frame and ships fully assembled
with 360° ½ rolling casters. Available with 21 to 28 inch rackmount
opening heights, it can be tailored to specific cooling and cabling
requirements using a range of standard options. The mobile
equipment rack can also be designed to handle EMC and/or rugged requirements where necessary.
The cart offers various functional and aesthetic options as
well. There are several vented panels and door styles to choose
from and the standard Formica countertop can be replaced with
a range of other surface types and colors. Accessories such as
shelves, drawers, writing surfaces and cable management can be
added to further personalize the cart’s configuration.
An optional streamlined, compact dual-pivot arm is adjustable
up to 18 inches high and 19 inches deep and securely clamps to
the cart’s top. The arm assembly provides neat cable management for an easier work environment and increased mobility. An
optional tablet mount specifically designed to match the mobile
equipment rack can be added. It is designed to accommodate
any tablet up to 10.6 inches, and can be customized to match the
color scheme of the cart.
Ergonomic Keypad Enclosures Now Available in
OKW’s Comtec range of sloping front
keypad enclosures is now available in
seven standard sizes. These modern housings feature an attractive ‘softline’ design
with an ergonomically inclined (10º) operating area, which guarantees comfortable
operation of the controls. Typical applications will include telecoms equipment,
intercoms, surveillance devices, data
collection, point-of-sale terminals and a
broad range of instrumentation.
The Comtec enclosures are molded in
fine textured ABS (UL 94 HB). Two standard colors are offered: off-white, RAL 9002 or black, RAL 9005.
Custom colors and materials also available on request.
Each enclosure consists of a top and base molding, and optionally, a clip-on battery compartment lid. Assembly is by an interlocking system at the front and by two screws at the rear. This also
allows easier access if the cases are mounted on a wall.
The range now includes seven standard sizes with external
dimensions from 4.72 by 5.90 by 1.69 inches to 11.41 by 7.87 by
3.11 inches. Four sizes are available with a battery compartment
aperture in the base section, which is designed for mounting an
accessory battery cradle. Three types of battery cradle are offered:
one 9 V cell, two 9 V cells or four 1.5 V AA cells.
Hammond’s HJ Series Ticks All the Boxes
has introduced its HJ H series,
a family of hinged cover metal
sealed to NEMA Type 3R, 4
(IP66), 12 and 13. Designed for
wall or bulkhead mounting, the
HJ H series is well suited for
housing electrical and electronic equipment in installations
where dust and/or water protection is required.
The family is suitable for use to house instruments, electronics,
hydraulic or pneumatic controls, or used an electrical junction box
or terminal wiring enclosure. An initial 27 sizes, ranging from 4.0
by 4.0 by 3.0 inches to 16.0 by 14.0 by 10.0 inches, are all available
The body of the unit is fabricated from 16 or 14-gauge steel, the
covers from 14-gauge, powder coated in ANSI 61 gray. All seams
are continuously welded and smooth finished; there are no cutouts, knockouts or holes. External stainless steel hinge and hinge
pin, and two stainless steel clamps (one if the height is 6 inches
(150 mm) or less) achieve the environmental protection, pulling
the cover evenly down on to the seamless poured-in-place gasket.
The stainless steel hardware allows the units to be hosed down
and installed in outdoor locations. Top and bottom mounting
flanges on industry standard centers are provided as standard on
all sizes. The door is fitted with a bonding stud and the body with
a grounding stud.
Removable inner panels, either painted white or with a galvanized finish, are optionally available. An extensive range of accessories, such as terminal straps and brackets, breather kits, filter
