3U x 10.5" and 3U x 19" enclosures with tilt/swivel handle

There are lots of reasons why our INSTRUMET aluminium enclosures are popular – but one that stands out right now is the optional handle. Demand for the portable version of INSTRUMET has grown to the point where it now represents 50 per cent of the orders for these 3U cases.

Maybe it’s because the handle makes it easier to incline INSTRUMET at the most convenient angle when it’s used as a desktop enclosure. Or perhaps it’s because the cast handles are very robust and more than capable of withstanding the battering that industrial environments tend to mete out.

Either way, more electronics designers are specifying INSTRUMET for a wide range of applications including communications, test and measurement equipment, laboratory instruments and control systems. And there are lots more good reasons to choose INSTRUMET, one of our newer metal electronics cases. They are:

  • an attractive way of housing standard 3U x 10.5-inch and 19-inch subracks
  • supplied pre-assembled and ready to use – with plenty of custom options
  • very tough and yet extremely light
  • available with custom ventilation to improve cooling and save energy
  • available direct from METCASE or via our distributors.
  • For an exploded view of these enclosures, watch the INSTRUMET video then visit the website to view and download the specifications.
