New from Penn Elcom, the Vulcan Shockmount Chassis gives your case affordable military-grade protection against impact, shock and vibration.

The 19” rack is a standardized frame or enclosure for mounting multiple electronic equipment modules. Each module has a front panel that is 19 inches (482.6 mm) wide. The 19-inch dimension includes the edges or “ears” that protrude from each side of the equipment, allowing the module to be fastened to the rack frame with screws or bolts. One unit or U is 1.75” (44.45 mm). Common uses include computer servers, telecommunications equipment and networking hardware, audio-visual production gear, and scientific equipment.

The Protechnic Exo Rack range is based on our patented Exo case design, the rack case design consists of an Exo case exterior with a vibration isolated internal rack frame, all cases have recessed butterfly catches and recessed sprung loaded handles.

Innovative Construction

Vulcans Patented design uses hollow triangular sections of high-tensile tempered aluminium alloy. This gives it an extraordinary strength-to-weight ratio while retaining stability whatever the chassis size.

Versatile Design

You can now safely integrate sensitive and high-value devices into rack enclosures without upgrading to a heavy and costly steel chassis. Tested to military standards, a Vulcan Chassis will keep contents safe from drops, vibrations and impact during transportation or storage
