Verotec wins contract to supply custom enclosures for flight simulators

Verotec has won a multi-year contract from a major North American manufacturer of flight simulators to supply more than 50,000 modified subrack front panels. 50 different designs of panel, in heights of 3U and 6U and in widths from 2HP to 16HP, are needed. The IEEE1101.10 compliant panels are modified variants of Verotec's standard extruded aluminium panels.

The 2.5mm thick extruded aluminium panels have a clear conductive chromate finish and are fitted with inject/eject handles and stainless steel EMC gaskets. Each of the 50 modified panel designs is machined and silk screened to the customer's specification to provide the HMI and connector interfaces required for each element of the simulator control systems. To meet the requirements, Verotec has invested in excess of £120k to create an automated aluminium CAM machining centre in its Southampton, UK production facility. The investment enables complex 3D high precision machining and high volume batch processing to be undertaken.

The modified front panels are fitted to Verotec's KM6-HD heavy duty subracks, which offer enhanced protection against the shock and vibration generated during the operation of the flight simulators. A custom, cPCI-based backplane, also designed and supplied by Verotec, completes the enclosure and internal interconnect subsystems.

Supplying electronic enclosure products to a diverse market place, Verotec manufactures and integrates a comprehensive range of standard products including 19in racks, instrument cases, fantrays, backplanes, power supplies and bus-based systems. Verotec offers a full engineering and manufacturing service to assist customers in modifying our standard products or developing custom versions.
