The KIC-SL-E is the “expanded” version of KIC-SL with larger dimensions. It provides increased internal volume for the experiment accommodation maintaining the same mechanical interfaces and locking mechanism for insertions in small racks. The KIC-SL-E is made of certified material with excellent mechanical and chemical structural properties. It composed by a main body (where the electrical interface connector is placed) and a cover. The KIC-SL-E external and internal surfaces undergone appropriate treatment to guarantee electrical isolation and/or corrosion resistance. The KIC-SL-E provides one Level of Containment (LoC). The KIC-SL-E is provided with a standardized electrical connector that allows its use on existing facilities or equipment available on ISS. Alternative connectors can be implemented on request. In its standard configuration the KIC-SL-E is fully qualified for manned missions and for many of the carriers available today including Chinese Shenzhou.
