Innovative designs in mission critical equipment, #Recab

Recab and nVent SCHROFF’s customers face similar challenges. Across the board we have found that customers are being asked to meet shorter design cycles with fewer resources while still ensuring the inclusion of certified products that can withstand the harshest environments,
– Innovative designs in misson critical equipment.

Recab + nVent SCHROFF offers the most innovative designs in mission critical equipment
On top of those challenges, the customers are expected to meet mechanical and thermal requirements with products that are backed by SWaP design expertise. Not to mention a need for simplified supply chains and manufacturers that have a broad COTS offering and services under one roof to meet any application demand.

After seeing and hearing the challenges faced by both manufacturers’ customers, Recab and nVent SCHROFF have teamed up to offer the best of both their worlds in a single package. Recab + nVent SCHROFF offers the most innovative designs in mission critical equipment – backed by industry-leading technology that has been developed by two world-class organizations. Together, we form an unmatched group of rugged defense computing experts with a wide range of COTS products enabling SWaP optimized solutions. Two such application examples are below:

Application: Recab Robust recorder
This application began as a regular 3U CompactPCI project. Once in place, the customer wanted MIL contacts on the front and a more durable chassis. Recab together with nVent SCHROFF then developed a solution with standard cPCI content in a durable box with Mil 38999 connectors. With removable SSDs and a few extra slots, this became a solution that can be equipped for different projects.

  • CAN bus
  • 1553 bus
  • Arinc 429.

Application: Customized Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI)solutions
Recab together with nVent SCHROFF provides bespoke HCI solutions for customers looking to drive IT efficiencies throughout their business.

One of our areas of specialty is in delivering support for customers operating in environments requiring rugged hardware, such as the defense and aerospace industries. These are areas where computing technology not only has to be hyper-connected but meet tough certification standards and be resistant to among other extreme shock, vibration and wide temperature ranges.
