Flex Tainer


The FlexTainer is a rugged enclosure system for packaging EPIC, EBX, or Mini-ITX CPU payloads. It is constructed of .125" aluminum and designed for hostile and mobile environments. The FlexTainer features a dual system of shock and vibration isolation: The CPU payload is mounted horizontally in the enclosure with two internal rubber corner rails to absorb high-frequency vibrations, while the entire enclosure is mounted on the host platform with a thick rubber pad which absorbs low-frequency G-forces. The rubber pad may be removed for optional mounting solutions such as hard mounting, flange endcap, or fluidic mount assembly.

The FlexTainer cross section measures 7.00" wide by 5.00" high (not including mounting pad) and is designed to mount the CPU payload horizontally along the entire length of the enclosure body. The CPU is mounted on a choice of three adapter plates (EPIC, Mini-ITX, or EBX) which is then installed in the FlexTainer. Ample room is provided for several PC/104 accessory cards to be installed above the stack, accessories such as hard drives or power supplies below, or thermal solutions such as cooling pipes or custom designed heat spreaders.

The FlexTainer is available in standard lengths of 4.55" (EPIC), 6.75" (Mini-ITX) and 10" (EBX) with custom lengths up to 48". The FlexTainer is available from stock with a variety of pre-punched endcaps and mounting options. For customer designed faceplates, a downloadable DWG file is available at http://www.tri-m.com. The FlexTainer and its standard accessories are RoHS compliant.
