Introducing the new innovative ERV3 model
CP Cases recently won a contract worth over £500k to provide more than 350 specialised lightweight ERack enclosures to a global telecoms and traffic management company; delivery through 2020 – 2021. This was a perfect opportunity to showcase our new innovative ERV3 model.
The end client is the world leader in digital comms, employing more than 5000 people. Working with customers in over 50 countries and revenues approaching €750m PA. Following detailed technical discussions and compliance conformance, CP’s innovative new ERV3 model was down-selected to meet the stringent physical, climatic and environmental requirements of this application.
CP’s ERV3 model is the latest design iteration of the long-established ERack product range; first developed in conjunction with Brunel University 30 years ago.
Manufactured from high tensile aerospace grade lightweight aluminium, ERV3 19” enclosures are fully welded monocoque structures. They offer exceptional performance in extreme environments and is highly resistant to seawater, salt fog and chemical environments.
Accredited to MIL-STD 810G and IP66, the ERV3 welded construction can be configured to be EMC screened; whilst still accommodating pressure and vacuum relief and 2-way venting using a proprietary CP designed EMC and IP66 compliant valve.
The shock-mounted 19” chassis is suspended in the ERack body by a calibrated configuration of AVM’s (anti-vibration mounts). This is modelled and selected to perform to the specific technical requirements of the application. It takes into account the equipment fragility, climate and electromagnetic conditions during the equipment life when “in the field”. Use and rough handling are par for the course.
Customised deep lids accommodate connectors and switches have recessed panels welded into them. Fully gasketed against driving rain and blowing sand. The lids are also key-lockable to prevent casual inquisitive intruders whilst in unattended transit or storage situations. ERacks are designed to compatibly inter-stack with other 19” enclosures.
