Mitraset Classic rackmount cases are made of aluminum and are designed to hold electronic equipment in a 19″ grid in accordance with DIN EN 60297-3-100 and EIA-310-E. Zarges Mitraset Half-Rack cases are designed to the same strict standards to hold half-size, 9.5″, electronics.
EMI effectively can be addressed in very complex terms but for most applications EMI shielding requires a Faraday cage around the equipment requiring protection. Any gap in the cage will allow some leakage and if the case contents are susceptible to that frequency range or if sensitive data can be compromised by the emission of those frequencies, the EMI effectively is inadequate. The Zarges enclosure was tested for shielding effectiveness over the frequency range of 1 - 18GHz and passed.
Aluminum offers many advantages over typical composite case construction. It can weather extreme temperatures, resist impact without cracking, and will not rust or corrode over time. ZARGES cases are free of ferromagnetism and are an excellent conductor of electricity and heat. The Mitraset line of aluminum rackmount cases for electronic installations are inherently shielded against EMI.
Aluminum cases can be fabricated with welded or formed seams to eliminate most radiation leakage with little additional cost in manufacturing processes or material content. Plastic and composite materials require some type of conductive supplement to the nonconductive basic materials and these supplements significantly increase material/labor costs. These supplemental materials are difficult to employ in the case manufacture and often easily damaged when the case experiences rough handling environments or temperature extremes.
The Mitraset and K475 cases passed the shielding requirements of 60dB from 150kHz to 18GHz. The tests were performed at Chomerics, Inc. of Woburn MA. The assessment determined that the Mitraset does comply to the certain requirements set forth in IEEE STD 299.
As a custom option, the Mitraset and K475 cases can be fitted with a EMI shielding gasket made from Chomerics CHO-SEAL 1285, which is silver-plated aluminum in silicone and provides additional shielding between 90-110 dB.
Mitraset rackmount cases have proven themselves in a multitude of tests and military deployments. For the Mitraset® Classic, Zarges has obtained US MIL-STD-810 standard.
