Rugged enclosures protect marine electronic systems

Foremost Electronics announces the availability of a wide 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.

Continued maritime threats including territorial disputes, smuggling, and piracy are driving countries to make greater investments in their naval capabilities. This includes adoption of the latest satellite communication technology as well as focusing on smaller vessels with enhanced weapon systems. Commercial marine operators are also enhancing their electronic security and communication systems.

Foremost specialises in manufacturing components that can stand up to harsh environments, rugged applications and extreme conditions, as well as meeting shock and vibration requirements. Foremost’s products and complete solutions combine the know-how of its specialists in the integration of mechanics, electronics and thermal control together with many years of experience and the most diverse application requirements to maximise customers’ size, weight, and power requirements.

NVent Schroff products from Foremost offer robust 19in cabinets that meet the specifications of MIL-S-901D. Their characteristics allow systems builders meet the most 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 quickly and easily developed and validated by numerical simulation, saving lengthy and expensive tests in a laboratory. The elastic suspension is specially adapted to the mechanical environment and the resilience of the components. And at the same time, the dimensions and weight of the cabinet are tailored to any specific integration requirements. The final design is further validated using a model that has been calibrated in real tests using a finite element calculation.
