The Land Systems Reference Centre, LSRC, 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 chosen to supply customised IMRAK cabinets, which have been specified as the default rack for the communications test equipment. An initial tranche of 15 IMRAK cabinets against an overall order for several 100 has now been delivered.
The IMRAKs 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 provide an electrically clean ready-to-run environment. The communications equipment under test is mounted into the fitted mounting plates, reducing set up time during the testing process.
Verotec was chosen as the supplier because of the versatility and configurability of the IMRAK cabinet and its in-house design and manufacturing capability. By modifying the standard IMRAK cost and lead time were reduced, and the in-house customisation capability meant that the application specific cabinets were supplied to the required specification on time.
