Pentair: configure Interscale cases for many embedded systems
Pentair introduces a new concept for building embedded systems. Based on small form factor-boards (e.g. ATX, Micro ATX, Mini ITX, Pico ITX), single-board computers (e.g. Embedded NUC, Raspberry Pi and Arduino) or a proprietary board, the customer first configures a case with the flexible and modular Schroff Interscale case platform. Various electronic components, such as cooling, necessary cutouts, labeling and accessories are then integrated. Other services, such as performing simulations and tests, as well as certification support, are also included. As an example, by using standardized modules, the customer can build up custom IIoT solutions and other applications while keeping costs at a minimum.
Here, it isn't important which type of board the customer has selected for their application, whether standard or non-standardized. The Schroff Interscale platform is flexible and can be adapted whether for standard or non-standardized boards. This case platform is based on a parametric model, and can easily be adapted to various heights, widths and depths, depending on requirement and the size of the respective board. The special interlocking design of Schroff Interscale cases provides integrated EMC protection of 20 dB at 2 GHz without requiring additional EMC seals. The design ensures a protection class up to IP 30. Depending on the model, the cases consist of either two to four parts that are easily fastened by the use of only two or four screws. The cases can be assembled and taken apart quickly and easily, which greatly reduces integration time. Based on the board type selected, specific interfaces are preconfigured into the case cutouts. These and other individualized cutouts specified by the customer are a part of the overall Interscale concept.
