LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., December 2016 - Optima Stantron has expanded its line of rugged MIL-SPEC, weld-free cabinets. With a bolted construction, the MB Series is designed for use in environments where welded joints may be considered a potential risk of failure, such as high shock and vibration or humidity.

Built on a modular, common COTS platform, the cabinets are easily configured to user specifications. Since being launched in 2014, numerous configurations of the MB Series have been successfully designed, tested and deployed throughout many maritime and ground-based defense programs.

Common, scalable components are quickly adapted to almost any cabinet size and feature sets. Several designs have been tested to MIL-STD-167-1 and MIL-S-901D, including barge testing, and can be fitted with hard-mount or shock-isolated hardware.

The cabinets feature heavy-duty vertical and horizontal aluminum extrusions with grooves to accommodate EMI gaskets and steel corner-key inserts. Design options include doors, side, top and bottom panels as well as cooling, I/O cabling and floor mounting or casters.

Each application requires engineering review for environmental specifications and equipment loads.
