Versatile enclosures in 10 standard sizes

METCASE has extended its UNICASE range of aluminium instrument enclosures with ten new models in black. These highly versatile enclosures are ideal for desktop or portable electronics.   Typical applications will include test and measurement equipment, machine controllers, peripheral devices, switchboxes, medical and wellness systems, and laboratory equipment.   UNICASE enclosures are offered in two styles: regular and slimline. There are ten standard sizes with externals dimensions from 130 x 180 x 50 mm to 474 x 300 x 134 mm. All versions are now available painted in black, RAL 9005 or light grey, RAL 7035.   The enclosures are supplied flat packed and are easy to assemble in just a few minutes. The assembly consists of the top and base covers, two internal assembly extrusions and anodised front and rear panels. The top and base covers have an attractive bevelled edge and are secured to internal assembly extrusions by eight M3 fixing screws.

The internal assembly extrusions also include guide rails for mounting slide-in PCBs and chassis plates. There are four guide positions available.

The internal chassis formed by the front panels and assembly extrusions can be used for assembly and testing of the electronics, prior to final assembly of the top and base covers. The front and rear panels are recessed by 8 mm for protection of the displays, controls and connectors. Four non-slip rubber feet are included in the kit.

OKW can supply UNICASE enclosures fully customised and ready for mounting the electronic components. The cases can also be painted in other colours, and can even be supplied in different sizes.
