Sponsored by OKW: Fast installation aluminium wall mount enclosures

METCASE the metal enclosures division of OKW has introduced the 'DATAMET' range of aluminium wall enclosures. These stylish and robust housings are designed for indoor electronic systems and have excellent access for mounting the equipment.

Typical applications will include control units, measurement systems, medical equipment, safety and security systems, communication devices, and machine controllers.

'DATAMET' enclosures consist of a die cast front bezel which locates onto the folded aluminium case body and rear panel. This three part assembly allows total access to the components and wiring during assembly and maintenance.

The rear panel includes mounting points for PCBs and chassis, plus three fixing holes for mounting the unit to a wall, or machine. The under side of the case body can be used for fitting cable glands or connectors. The cases are very easy to assemble, and there are no visible fixing screws on the case body or rear panel.

Three standard sizes are offered: 250 x 180 x 120mm (S), 350 x 250 x 120mm (M) and 400 x 300 x 120mm (L). The front bezel is painted window grey, RAL 7040 and the other parts are painted light grey, RAL 7035. The paint finish is textured polyester.

The attractive die cast front bezel has a recessed aperture for mounting an anodised aluminium front panel. The front panel can be easily adapted for membrane keypads, display modules, push-buttons, rotary controls etc.

'DATAMET' enclosures can be supplied with additional holes for push-buttons, connectors and displays, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos. The cases can also be made in non-standard sizes and painted in other colours. Standard prices start at £70.
