Over travel slides supply access to mission-critical equipment

UK company Extreme Cases make tough and technical cases for mission-critical equipment in extreme environments.

The cases and enclosures are built and tested in the UK to the most punishing military and commercial standards, so when they designed a new ruggedized interactive presentation and planning tool they recognised the need for equally tough components to incorporate into the case.

Smart BeamTM is designed to be used in the toughest of environments. The unit can be easily and quickly set up to make any surface interactive - including a table top.

The rugged and lightweight case needs to be highly portable by a single person. Accuride’s double handle has a push button release and has been installed to provide lock-in and lock-out for absolute stability during use.

The handle kit has been specifically designed for areas where light weight and corrosion resistant materials are needed in tough or mobile applications.

Over travel slides for total access

Easy access and fast deployment are also critical. The quick slide out mechanism is supplied by a pair of Accuride 3301 telescopic slides. These have a load rating up to 68kg (depending on slide length) with over travel for complete access to the unit.

Both the handle kit and slides are part of Accuride’s off-the-shelf range so continuity of supply is never an issue.

The SMART BEAM™ allows collaborative work on documents or multimedia files on any surface to make group projects and activities truly interactive:

  • 70-inch projected image from just 16cm
  • Up to 97 inches & fully interactive right to the corners
  • Multiple users can add notes and drawings using digital pens
  • Save & send feature for all mark-ups and notations
  • Use without casting a shadow thanks to the ultra-short-throw design
  • Co-ordinate multiple feeds in one location; including video
  • 3LCD technology ensures high-quality images, high White and Colour Light Output for vivid, natural colours and deep blacks, even in daylight
