Aluminium instrument enclosures

Metcase, the metal enclosures division of OKW, has introduced the UNIMET range of aluminium instrument enclosures. These have been designed for housing test and measurement devices, machine controllers, network peripherals and medical technology.

The enclosures consist of a die cast front bezel which locates onto a fabricated case body. The bezel is painted in mid grey, RAL 7040 and case body is in light grey, RAL 7035. The base panel can be removed separately, and includes mounting points for pcbs and assemblies.

The removable rear panel is recessed and is ideal for mounting power inlets, connectors and on/off switches. Four self adhesive non-slip feet are also included in the kit. Moulded ABS tilt feet are also offered as accessories.

A range of six standard sizes is offered with external dimensions from 230 x 190 x 50mm to 350 x 260 x 150mm. Five of the sizes can be supplied with a tilt/swivel carry handle bar, which can be indexed at 30o intervals. Anodised aluminium front panels are available as accessories and include trims to hide the fixing screws.
