has begun offering rugged electronic packaging services for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products. The company says the services allow users to inexpensively outfit standard commercial products, such as computers, servers, data storage units and mobile electronic equipment, with a durable, rugged, and more protective enclosure.

Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions says its engineers work closely with each user to customize rugged enclosures with features such as I/O, wiring and interference panels, power and thermal devices and an array of integrated solutions.

Applications include a range of industries where devices must be used in harsh environments, such as military/aerospace, medical, education and research, industrial automation, communications, security and entertainment. Putting a more rugged enclosure around COTS equipement can meet the “most demanding needs of embedded and applied computing users,” the company says.

These rugged enclosures are engineered using durable, lightweight aluminum with welded seam construction. Meeting tough military specifications, Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions’ rugged enclosures can be configured with a shock and vibration isolated sub-chassis and an advanced temperature control system to fully shield the internal device from extreme temperatures.
