Schroff, the manufacturer of electronics packaging components and systems, has significantly enhanced its UK website, adding some new features designed to appeal to anyone involved in purchasing or specifying products such as cabinets, subracks, cases, backplanes, power supplies or complete bus-based systems.

One particularly useful innovation is the introduction of a Power Search facility to simplify the task of selecting products from the company’s comprehensive range of europacPRO subracks.

Through a step-by-step process of choosing the appropriate options for parameters such as height, width, depth, shielding and backplane compatibility, users are presented with the part number and details of a subrack to meet their exact requirements.

A pop-up line diagram of the subrack can be instantly viewed by moving the cursor over a ‘drawing’ icon, and full technical information is available by clicking on the part number.

Featuring a robust aluminium construction, the europacPRO subracks can be supplied in kit form from stock or fully assembled by Schroff’s expert technicians in only 5 working days. Even with modifications such as special sizes or custom printing and painting, fully assembled subracks are despatched in just 10 working days.

The subracks are 84HP wide and can be specified with heights of 3U or 6U and depths from 175 to 475mm. A comprehensive range of accessories is also available, including card guides, front panels, divider plates and handles.

Schroff has also developed a new customer portal,, which saves time and enhances the online experience by filtering and sorting information according to the interests and preferences specified in each customer’s personal profile.

Based on extensive analysis of customer feedback, the portal includes details of product pricing and availability and enables customers to download a wide variety of technical information, such as CAD data, three-dimensional product views, user manuals, test reports and white papers.
In addition, customers benefit from personalised news bulletins and can use for submitting inquiries or requests for quotation.
