Product Description

The ECU Series are ruggedized air conditioning systems for cooling electronics in austere and mobile applications. They maintain sealed electronics enclosures at or below ambient temperatures, enabling Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) electronics to be safely and effectively used for computing and communications in extremely hot or cold environments. These systems have been fully ruggedized for military use to MIL-STD-810.
