The FlexTainer is a rugged enclosure system for packaging EPIC, EBX, or Mini-ITX
CPU payloads. It is constructed of .125” aluminum and designed for hostile and
mobile environments. The FlexTainer features a dual system of shock and vibration
isolation: The CPU payload is mounted horizontally in the enclosure with two
internal rubber corner rails to absorb high-frequency vibrations, while the entire
enclosure is mounted on the host platform with a thick rubber pad which absorbs
low-frequency G-forces. The rubber pad may be removed for optional mounting
solutions such as hard mounting, flange endcap, or fluidic mount assembly.
The FlexTainer cross section measures 7.00” wide by 5.00” high (not including mounting
pad) and is designed to mount the CPU payload horizontally along the entire length of
the enclosure body. The CPU is mounted on a choice of three adapter plates (EPIC, Mini-
ITX, or EBX) which is then installed in the FlexTainer. Ample room is provided for several
PC/104 accessory cards to be installed above the stack, accessories such as hard drives
or power supplies below, or thermal solutions such as cooling pipes or custom designed
heat spreaders.

Overview


The FlexTainer™ is a new and unique design specifically intended to protect embedded electronics such as instrumentation, data collectors, remote terminals, SCADA packages or other solutions that operate in hostile environments. The FlexTainer ™ is constructed of 0.125” aluminium that can accommodate Epic, Mini-ITX, PC/104, ETX and other modules including their cabling and peripherals, with maximum flexibility in a minimum amount of space.
Deploying electronics in mobile or vehicle applications, vibration and G-forces greatly reduce product life expectancy and reliability. The FlexTainer™ ensures the modules receive maximum protection from vibration and G-forces. This is accomplished using Tri-M's dual system of isolating and absorbing rubber mountings. Internally, each of the four corners of the carrier plate is held in place by a rubber corner system, which isolates the cards from the extruded aluminum enclosure as it absorbs high frequency vibration. Externally, the anodized aluminum enclosure mates with a thick rubber-mounting pad allowing the FlexTainer ™ to be attached to a bulkhead while it absorbs low frequency G-forces. The rubber pad is optional and may be removed.
A solid (no openings) end cap is included with the FlexTainer kit. Custom end caps with any combination of connector holes can be supplied to meet specific client requirements. The FlexTainer™ is NEMA rated when used with optional end cap gaskets, and appropriate and connectors. Each anodized aluminium end cap is securely attached to the housing with eight selftapping, hex head machine screws. The standard black anodized FlexTainer™ measures 7" x 4.0" (W x H) and comes in three standard lengths of “Epic” (116mm), “ITX” (172mm), and 10". The FlexTainer™ Kit includes one solid end cap with no I/O openings (Part # CT-EC00), sixteen end cap screws and one shock mount pad and a carrier plate with mounting rubber.
