AVC-301M Construction

The AVC-301M PC is designed and constructed in accordance with the requirements of MIL-STD-454.

Thermal Design

The cooling of the components on the AVC-301M PC cards, Power Supply and the Pentiums chip is accomplished by conduction through the aluminum enclosure of the unit which is built as an heat-sink.

External Connectors

External connectors are used for interfacing with the subassemblies or equipment and are in accordance with requirement of MIL-STD-454. Connector mating bodies are keyed, and keyed locations are varied to prevent improper installation.

Identification and Marking

The marking and labels of the equipment meet the requirements of MIL-M-13231.


The AVC-301M PC will not be damaged or affected by the effects of ambient air temperature as follows: Operation: The AVC-301M PC shall meet performance requirements specified herein after exposure to temperatures from -40° to 71°C. Storage and transportation: -55° to 85°C.

Sand and Dust

The AVC-301M PC shall operate as specified herein while and after being subjected to sand and dust as encountered in dry arid arias. The AVC-301M PC shall meet the requirements specified in MIL-STD-810F.

Salt Fog

The AVC-301M PC is resistant to the corrosive effects of salt fog environment. The AVC-301M PC meets the requirements specified in MIL-STD-810F Method 509.3 Procedure I. The base metal shall not be visible through the finish or coating, nor shall be any evidence of blistering, softening, separation from the base metal, corrosion products, or other coating failure.
