High Deflection Mounts

VHC SERIES

High deflection shock and vibration isolators for medium-weight sensitive equipment. Barry VHC-Series mounts are special purpose, mid-frequency isolators designed to protect sensitive equipment when high level shock and vibration inputs are expected. Typical applications include electronic equipment installed in mobile equipment subjected to off-road environments.

Barry LT Compound or Neoprene

Steel (Grounding Strap Beryllium Copper)

4 lbs.

Applications

  • Ground Vehicle Electronics
  • Shipboard Equipment
  • Shipping Containers
  • Equipment Installed in Transportable Shelters

Benefits

  • Large deflection capacity provides superior shock attenuation
  • Can be used as stabilizers for tall equipment packages
  • Maximum loads apply when mount will be subjected to an 18" freefall. Larger loads can be accommodated for less severe shock inputs.

Features

  • Buckling design
  • Steel construction
  • Compression to shear stiffness ratio 2:1
  • Designed to carry static loads in the axial direction, but can accommodate dynamic inputs in the radial direction
  • Attenuates 18" freefall shock input to approximately 12g's

Load Range

  • 4 load ratings to 145 lbs. per mount

Environmental Data

  • Barry LT (low-temperature) Compound, which is ideal for military applications, operates between -67ºF and +180ºF (-55ºC to +82ºC) and is resistant to fungus and ozone.
  • Neoprene has an operating temperature range of -20ºF to +180ºF (-30ºC to +180ºC) and resists oil and ozone.
