MicroMax Announces Its M-Max V75 Series Highly Rugged PC/104 Chassis Now Avalable as Standalone ProductsJune 2, 2016
New York, May 23, 2016 — MicroMax announced that two versions of the M-Max V75 ultra-compact machined aluminum chassis, which are compatible with the VITA 75 standard, are now available as standalone products. Used in current MicroMax products, these chassis have proven capability, and due to customer demand are now being made available separately to help system designers.
The M‑Max V75 (standard size) shown at left and the M‑Max V75 Short (short size) shown on right below are VITA 75 footprint ultra-compact machined aluminum chassis providing excellent thermal and environmental properties. The fanless M-Max V75 can house up to two PC/104 or similar-sized boards, and weighs approximately 5 lbs; it dissipates around 28W of heat. The also fanless M-Max V75 Short can house one PC/104 or similar-sized board, weighs 3.15 lbs., and dissipates around 14W of heat. Both chassis models are designed to house computer boards for reliable operation in extremely tough environments including transportation (air, marine, ground and rail), and mining and industrial processing applications. MicroMax’s patented passive cooling system and the aluminum alloy T6061 chassis provide IP66 dust and moisture protection, and withstand shocks up to 10g and vibration up to 2g.
MicroMax’s high-performance extremely rugged M-Max 871 EP2/MMS computer and the M-Max SW208 Gigabit Ethernet switch are each housed in a M-Max V75 series chassis. Recently, these systems received attention and approval by many designers attending Embedded World 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany.
The M-Max V75 and M-Max V75 Short are designed to support embedded solutions used in critical applications in harsh environments. To aid application, the front panel can be modified to customer specifications and can be equipped with various connectors.
