Features and benefits of using Zarges Mitraset rack housing
Put simply, the key benefit of the Zarges Mitraset range is that each of the options (Classic, Racklite and Racklite Basic) are all Electro-Magnetic Compatible.
This effectively means that not only will they protect your electronics equipment from static and atmospheric electricity, but they also prevent electro-magnetic coupling with external equipment.
This is in addition to being waterproof to IP65, and extremely tough and durable.
The inner frame, that is used to support the mounted equipment, is isolated from the exterior of the EMC cases. As well as offering the desirable conductive properties, this also helps protects against shock, impact, and vibration.
This construction also offers excellent thermal conductivity (which helps to improve the heat conduction of the electronics equipment), reducing the need for additional cooling.
The aluminium alloy exterior also provides natural resistance to corrosion. Paint can be added to the surface for further protection or for branding / decorative / camouflaging purposes if required, however.
Besides all of this, Zarges Mitraset EMC Cases also feature recessed side handles, turn latches on their lids, reinforcement ribs (if required) and inter-stacking locators that work across the entire range of case sizes.
Additional options and configuration
If you have a specific requirement for your EMC cases, then the range of accessories available mean that these Zarges Mitraset cases are versatile enough to suit most applications.
For example, humidity indicators, pressure relief valves (manual, screw or fully automatic), legged stands, cable retention brackets, component bags and even keyboard support in the lid (6U size or over) can all be added.
Besides this, the housing body can be painted to any specified RAL or BS colour, whilst the inner frame components can be “alochromed” to improve their long-term conductive performance.
The panels of the EMC cases can also provide a number of different options.
This includes eyebolts for lifting (i.e. craning), cylinder locks in the lid, a screwed lid fastening and flat or hinged panels. RF screening, seals in the lid and a skirt seal (including RF tight – allowing for IP65 protection) to further improve performance.
If you need a specific feature not listed above however then please get in touch – special requirements can usually be catered for on request.

What are the different Zarges Mitraset options?
What does electro-magnetic compatible mean?
Electromagnetic compatibility, also known as EMC, is the interaction of electrical and electronic equipment with its electromagnetic environment, and with other equipment. All electronic devices have the potential to emit electromagnetic fields. Applied to Zarges Mitraset, being electromagnetic compatible means the cases prevent electro-magnetic coupling with external equipment.
Are Zarges Mitraset waterproof?
Zarges Mitraset cases are certified to be water and dust resistant to IP65. This ensures that they will keep the electronics / equipment housed within safe and dry (and free from dust which can dramatically shorten lifespan too).
What sizes are these racks available in?
Depending on the option chosen, there are varying case depths that can be selected (in line with industry standards). Heights are available between 3 U and 12 U.
What loads can Zarges EMC cases handle?
Zarges Mitraset cases can take loads of up to 100kg, making them suitable for the vast majority of equipment used today.
Have Zarges Mitraset cases been tested?
All of the Zarges Mitraset cases have undergone extensive testing. This includes being tested according to AECTP standards, MIL-STD-810, DIN40050, ICE34-5/529 and VG95446. The cases are also certified to IP65 (ingress protection).
