Optimized for High Shock / Vibration


The R4U-20A is designed to survive! Aircraft grade

aluminum construction, shock mounted unibody drive
support, self locking stainless hardware, solid
construction designed and manufactured in the USA.
These system are ideal for high shock / high vibration
environments such as vehicular or aircraft mount or
transit case installation. The short depth of 20 inches
allows it to fit virtually all transit cases. The rugged
construction and enhanced features will assure its
reliable operation in that challenging environment.
