Electronics in industrial environment
Among many other sectors electronic boards in particular drive industrial applications and solutions to highest performance. Together with - or incorporated into - electrical devices these electronics have become an integral part of the industrial machinery, factory automation and centralized or decentralized control units. They provide machine control, signaling and data transfer, they enable the connection to different machines and to management information systems – finally they have become indispensable in a modern factory.
Regardless of how important you may find electronic boards for your particular needs – they remain sensitive to environmental influences. Not only dust and humidity or corrosive substances, but also heat, shock or vibration will influence the performance of electronics and finally of your machinery and processes.
Partnership and long term support
This is where Pentair enters the scene. For five decades we have been known for Electronic packaging solutions, cooling expertise and robust as well as aesthetic enclosures and cabinets. You can rely on well-thought, first class products paired with configuration and modification services of all types. We provide custom front panels in less than 5 days, we deliver individual cabinet configurations from a variety of combinations in less than 10 days and we are not shy to develop and design your Taylor-made case, system or enclosure. We will listen to understand your particular need and our products and solutions will protect your electronics and enable your success.
|A variety of products
The 19" technology has proven to be the most important standard to allow and secure interoperability of board based systems. While mostly implemented in Test & Measurement it still plays an important role in industrial applications whenever electronics need to be installed, combined and secured. This is where Schroff has been at home for more than five decades, having also developed components and kits for use in industrial environment.
Our europacPRO subracks and ratiopac PRO cases - to only mention the two most important product lines - with their modular construction offer you many profitable advantages, both technical and economic. They allow versatile combinations, letting you implement a range simply, cost-effectively and with no design outlay in varying height, width and depth, and combining all the elements of the outstandingly wide and deep range of standard components.

Static handles, special handles for embedded systems or heavy-duty insertion and extraction handles for applications with very high insertion and withdrawal forces - our range of handles ensures that functionality does not have to be without convenience.
FRONT PANEL EXPRESS
Cut-outs for connectors, LEDs, handles and switches, and printing – the front panels strongly determine the appearance of a case or subrack. With Front Panel Express you can give your front panels an individual configuration. Schroff does the cut-outs and colours to your specification. With fast delivery from two days on. More information at www.frontpanelexpress.eu
|Power and Backplanes
Every board needs power. Our Power supply units will equip your system with 5, 12, 15, 24 or 48VDC on one to three output voltages. Wide range power input devices are available as well as adjustable output voltages. Schroff maxpower 19" Power Supplies are well known for maximum voltage at minimum consumption of space. An adapter facilitates DIN-rail mounting well.
And finally Schroff backplanes stand for high speed and absolute signal integrity. We develop and manufacture for example VME, VME64x, and CompactPCI backplanes at our facilities in Germany, and due to the fact that we have all resources aligned, we of course can offer modified versions to your particular needs.
|VME and CPCI as well as MicroTCA
The Schroff Systems are the optimal choice for harsh industrial environment due to their robust built and the proven robustness of the connectors. With our rugged subrack program and our in-house conformal coating we can adapt the systems to each required shock and vibration level and for use in aggressive atmosphere. The modular concept of the system with front and rear removable cards guarantee a fast exchange time of failed components and shortest downtime of the machine or process. The design and choice of electrical components guarantee a long life time.
Our VME systems run typically with real time operating systems as Multi-processor Systems. Therefore they are the right choice for complex automation applications.
The Schroff CompactPCI systems are typically used in process control where a huge amount of data has to be processed. Using components from the commercial market in an industrial format provides a cost optimized solution. The new member of the CompactPCI family, CompactPCI Serial provides even the most modern protocols Ethernet, PCIe, S-ATA and USB3.0 and allows Multi-processor applications.
|MicroTCA is the best choice when space is limited but high flexibility, high performance, shelf management, remote control and full redundancy is needed. The boards are only 75 mm high but allow the newest and most powerful processors to be used. With RuggedMTCA (MTCA.1) Shock and Vibration levels according to IEC 61587-1 DL3 can be achieved.||
Configuration and modification service
Starting from our standard product portfolio we offer configurations and modifications to fit exactly the customer's needs. If another slot count is needed - choose from the wide range of standard Schroff backplanes, if another power supply or fan is required, individual front panels, cut-outs or your special color…we configure or modify the system for you with a lead time of 2 weeks.
|Large selection:||A comprehensive product portfolio with multiple configuration and modification possibilities based on the broad subrack, case,
backplane and power supply product portfolio
|Superb support:||We assist you choosing the right product and help with our in house simulation and test capabilities like thermal test chamber, signal integrity testing and many more.|
|Plug and play:||Our systems are tested with most of the boards available on the market|
|The industrial factory of the future, no downtime and simple to maintain
The service engineer receives an SMS on his mobile: Board xy on control system Z in hall B is getting too hot and will fail in a short time. The engineer immediately responds and takes a unit xy from replacement stock to machine Z in hall B. He pulls the handle of the board xy, extracting it and plugging in the replacement unit. In the meantime nothing has changed; the factory still runs at 100%.
This is not a future vision; this is already possible with the powerful Carrier- and Shelf management from MicroTCA. This new system technology features a management controller on each field replaceable unit like the boards, fan trays and power supplies. With temperature, voltage, current and other sensors, the health of the unit is permanently monitored. If a sensor exceeds the normal operation range, an event message is sent to the Shelf Manager which reacts and forwards the message over Ethernet to a remote computer or even a mobile phone.
As the MicroTCA standard allows in addition to build fully redundant systems that have an availability of 99.999%, even if a board has failed, the system and
with that the complete automation process keeps running. A little higher investment in the beginning keeps costs down over the life cycle of the machine.
PROLINE® enclosures consist of a rugged frame that protects your equipment from the stresses of movement and shipping. Frames are a roll-formed, robotically welded design made of 2.5-mm steel with solid steel, fully welded corners. Integral frame channels support the full weight of the galvanized subpanels.
