Custom Rack Mount Chassis
We have designed and produced numerous 1U rack mount 48 port fiber and copper systems. One exemplary customer was Fulcrum MicroSystems which led to others using Fulcrum’s technology. Fulcrum Micro was eventually acquired by Intel. We have been involved in numerous custom rack mount RAID systems. Historically, our first involvement was way back with Micropolis when full-height 5¼ drives were the best thing available. This obviously led to smaller rack mount enclosures as drive capacity increased and the footprint decreased.
Servers have been turned out as 1U to 4U rack mount enclosures in innumerable configurations as requirements have dictated. Aerospace is increasingly needing to compete by looking at COTS materials from commercial markets. EEi grew out of commercial electronics and are well versed at minimizing costs without sacrificing performance or quality. Defense companies are also looking to COTS component solutions. We have a considerable portfolio of already designed modules and reference design IP to minimize time-to-market, development, and manufacturing costs.
As a custom rack mount chassis manufacturer and integrator we can often take our existing IP, modify and augment it to meet your specific requirements producing amazing results for your chassis or integrated enclosure.
Even if your custom rack mount chassis is fully or mostly designed, EEi has the electromechanical manufacturing resources to produce your rack mount chassis product to print.
Faster to Market with Existing IP
We have developed rack mount chassis or subrack enclosures for decades and have refined chassis structures to a series of electromechanical architecture fundamentals for nearly all system requirements. Our modularized reference design process for new enclosures or chassis starts in the middle of the design process and not at the very beginning resulting in faster outcomes.
When you need flexibility in your rack mount chassis, our modular field replaceable units provide for mission-critical FRUs and upgrade flexibility:
- Hot-Swap Power Supplies
- Hot-Swap Fans or Blowers
- Hot-Swap Disk or Solid State Drives
- Custom Plug-in Modules or Other FRUs
System Build & Integration
We produce everything from the rack mount chassis to a fully integrated product. When manufacturing enclosures, it may be any combination of chassis and electronic/electrical modules, wire harnesses, and consigned components that you provide.
