4000 SERIES

RACKMOUNT & DEVELOPMENT ENCLOSURES

The 4000 Series consist of five (5) classes of enclosures that are classified by the ruggedization level and intended application. A variety of standard products and reference designs exist for all classes that can be further customized.

These flexible reference designs can support any enclosure height ranging in size from 1U to 12U and are well suited to support any backplane configuration to include VME, VME64x, VXS, VPX, cPCI, PCIe, PICMG and custom. Server-class or commercial motherboards (ATX) and embedded SBCs (ITX, EPIC, etc.) of any type can be configured. Stackable Small Form Factor (SFF) configurations such as PC104 are supported

Customization is available on all Models. Contact NIS to help select the appropriate model for your needs!
