19” mini-rack enclosures from METCASE

METCASE is now offering a wider range of standard and customised 19” aluminium enclosures for desktop and portable instrumentation.

Its TECHNOMET 19” mini-rack enclosures and INSTRUMET 19” cases offer solutions for test and measurement, laboratory instrumentation, networking and communications, industrial computers, sound/audio systems and industrial control.

Designed to be robust, the TECHNOMET 19” is the most advanced enclosure ever created by METCASE, in terms of cohesive design. Diecast bezels front and rear fit flush with the main case body; there are no visible fixing screws.

Both models enable swift and easy installation of 19” subracks, chassis and front panels. They feature threaded M4 pillars for earth connections and ventilation in the base and rear panels. TECHNOMET 19” is supplied with ABS side handles and non-slip feet. INSTRUMET 19” has ABS tilt feet and an optional a tilt/swivel carry handle that doubles as an ergonomic desk stand.

TECHNOMET 19” is available in three standard sizes (3U, 4U and 6U heights, 400 mm deep) and two standard colours: anthracite (RAL 7016) and light grey (RAL 7035). INSTRUMET 19” is available in one height (3U) with a choice of two widths: 10.5” or 19”, in depths of 350 or 450 mm. Standard colours are light grey (RAL 7035)/window grey (RAL 7040).

Accessories for both models include matt anodised 19” front panels and 19” mounting kits.

Customising options include 5U, 7U, 8U and 9U heights (Technomet 19”) and custom depths (both models), modified front panels, CNC pinching of holes and cutouts, fixings and inserts, special colours and finishes, digital printing of legends and logos.
