Abstract

Referring to the figure, this article describes a method for rigid mounting of a fragile device 1 by way of support studs 2 which pass through mechanical isolation shockmounts 3, through dome-shaped discs 4 and attach directly to the fragile device 1. The mechanical isolation shockmounts are, in turn, supported by a frame 5. For a description of operational and displacement qualities of elastomeric shockmounts refer to (*).

Frictional Elastomeric Shockmount System with Heat Dissipation Qualities

       Referring to the figure, this article describes a method
for rigid mounting of a fragile device 1 by way of support studs 2
which pass through mechanical isolation shockmounts 3, through
dome-shaped discs 4 and attach directly to the fragile device 1.  The
mechanical isolation shockmounts are, in turn, supported by a frame
5.  For a description of operational and displacement qualities of
elastomeric shockmounts refer to (*).

      The dome-shaped profile ribbed discs 4 are of metal
construction which, in turn, double as heat transfer appendages for
the fragile device.  During evaluation usage of the ribbed metal
discs 4 have lowered the operational temperature of the fragile
device by 3 to 4 degrees centigrade.  Note only one fragile device
mounting is shown with the support frame 5 having the capacity for
two.
