The LSRC (Land Systems Reference Centre), is the test and reference services centre of excellence, supporting the delivery and assured release of Coalition, Command, Control, Communications and Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) capability in support of deployed operations for the UK Armed Forces. Verotec has been selected to supply customised IMRAK cabinets, which have been designated as the default rack for the communications test equipment. An initial tranche of 15 IMRAK cabinets against an order for several 100 has now been provided.
The cabinets are 47U high and 1000mm deep, fitted with a custom top panel with custom cable entries and a six-fan tray. Bespoke ventilated chassis trays, fully ventilated front and rear doors, power and signal distribution cabling and extensive earth bonding give an electrically clean ready-to-run environment. The communications equipment under test is installed into the fitted mounting plates, decreasing set-up time during the testing process.
The company was selected as the supplier because of the versatility and configurability of the cabinet and its in-house design and manufacturing abilities. By modifying the standard product price and lead time were decreased, and the in-house customisation ability showed that the application-specific cabinets were supplied to the demanded specification on time.
