Provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, Pixus Technologies, now offers an ejector/injector handle for very high insertion force systems. The long ergonomic handle is suitable for 6U OpenVPX applications. The Pixus high insertion force Type VII design can handle up to 815N of pressure and features a die-cast zinc all-metal design. It can be used on standard panels or with an 1/2 HP offset for OpenVPX systems.
Options for the Type VII handles include coding/keying, a micro-switch for live insertion, and an ESD pin. With the handles’ long design, there is also space for adding the customer’s logo. Painting and silk-screening are optional. Suitable for the high connector insertion forces of 6U plug-in boards, the Type VII can also be used in 3U OpenVPX designs where minimal front I/O is required.
Pixus also offers short OpenVPX handles with a push-button and rugged metal claw. The company further provides faceplates, ESD clips, card guides, rails, and other board/enclosure components.
