VPX/VXS Handles & Panels

VMEbus Variant: VPX and VXS

Elma offers highly ergonomic latching handles for the higher insertion forces of VPX and VXS systems. Elma’s VPX handles and panel solutions come in 1.0”, 0.85”, and 0.80” widths for the various card sizes of the architecture. The VPX specification calls for the handle to be slightly offset from typical IEEE handle/panel placement. The handles feature Elma’s two-step latching process and are highly ergonomic. Elma also offers long versions of its IEEE VPX handles for increased leverage.
