Pixus Offers New Ultra-Rugged Mounting Rail for OpenVPX Enclosure Frames

Waterloo, Ontario  —  Aug 17, 2017 –  Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions,  has released a new mounting rail that supports very high insertion forces.   The modular extrusion rail accepts standard OpenVPX or other architectures boards based on the IEEE 1101 specification.
In many OpenVPX systems, the high insertion forces of some plug-in modules can cause standard mounting rails to bow or crack.  The rugged Pixus version features a thicker metal, has two mounting screws, and a re-enforced design to provide strength and durability.  When utilized in concert with Pixus’ new offset card guides, both 4HP and 5HP plug-in modules can be used in the same subrack.
Pixus offers OpenVPX enclosures, backplanes, components, and accessories.  The company also provides mounting rails and subrack components for CompactPCI Serial, CompactPCI, VME64x, and other architectures.
