The europacPRO family of subracks from Schroff serve as versatile general-purpose enclosures for 19in equipment and can also be configured for specific bus-based systems such as CompactPCI and VME64x.

The subracks’ extruded-aluminium horizontal rails are available in either lightweight or heavy-duty versions, with the front rails featuring a long lip to allow the insertion and removal of CompactPCI or VME64x boards using IEEE 1101.10/11 and IEC 60297-3-103 extractor handles.

In addition, they can be supplied with optional, retrofittable EMC cover plates, front panels and contact strips to provide typical shielding levels of 40dB at 1GHz and 30dB at 2GHz.

Rear horizontal rails can be specified either with an insulation strip for backplane mounting or with threaded holes to allow direct mounting of connectors. Sequential numbering on the horizontal rails enables card guides to be positioned quickly and easily.

Fully compatible with the IEEE 1101.1 standard for the mechanical design of 19in. systems, the subracks are 84HP wide and come in a choice of 3U, 4U, 6U or 9U heights and six depths from 175 to 475mm.
