The Zarges Mitraset EMC Cases are becoming increasingly popular. Being fully “electro magnetically compatible” – meaning they protect from static and atmospheric electricity, they are also IP65 rated and exceptionally tough.

Available in the standard 19 inch rack measurements, with 4 depth options, theses EMC Cases are the perfect solution for any important equipment.

01: What Are Zarges Mitraset® EMC Cases?

Tough 19″ rack unit to protect your critical electronics and communications equipment

Leading aluminium case supplier Zarges now offer EMC cases (Electro-Magnetic Compatible), also known as Mitraset racks or housing units, which provide an additional level of protection for sensitive electrical and electronic devices.

Available through GWP Protective, these Zarges Mitraset 19” rack utilise a range of quality components and a consistent manufacturing process to ensure that every case prevents electro-magnetic coupling with external equipment.

The Zarges Mitraset aluminum rack mount cases provide the highest level of protection for 19″ electronics.

    03: Applications / Images.

    Image gallery highlighting typical applications / uses for Zarges Mitraset® aluminium racks

    Zarges Mitraset housings are constructed from an aluminium alloy and designed to house electronics equipment in a standard 19” rack, whilst also providing conductive performance (in accordance with VG95446).

    04: Features / Specification.

    Additional features of EMC racks

    The inner frame, that is used to support the mounted equipment, is isolated from the exterior of the EMC cases which as well as offering the desirable conductive properties, also protects against shock, impact and vibrations.

    This construction also offers excellent thermal conductivity (which helps to improve the heat conduction of the electronics equipment), reducing the need for additional cooling with the aluminium alloy exterior also providing natural resistance to corrosion.

    Paint can be added to the surface for further protection or for branding / decorative / camouflaging purposes.

    Besides all of this, the Zarges Mitraset EMC Cases also feature recessed side handles, turn latches on the lid, reinforcement ribs (if required) and interstacking locators that work across the entire size range.

    Zarges Mitraset specifications

    The Zarges Mitraset Racks / EMC cases are available in four inner frame depths (219mm, 350mm, 480mm and 610mm), with these depths available in standard heights up to 12U.

    Zarges Mitraset EMC Cases also provide/comply with the following standards:

    Testing and standards

    • IP65 rating
    • DIN40050
    • ICE34-5/529
    • VG95446

    05: Options.

    EMC Case options & enhancements

    If you have a specific requirement for your EMC cases then the range of accessories available mean that these Zarges Mitraset cases are exceptionally versatile.

    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 conductive performance in the long term.

    Military spec aluminium cases
    The Zarges Mitraset cases, and indeed many of the other aluminium cases in their range, have been tested to meet military requirements

    The panels of the EMC cases can also provide a number of differing 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 then please get in touch – special requirements can usually be catered for on request.

    We are also able to offer a wide range of standard and custom rack mount cases – from rotationally moulded options from Hardigg through the completely bespoke EXOCase system. By offering a range of 19” rack mount cases we can ensure a case that is perfect for any applications.
