Comfortable handles for carrying and canting on a desk

METCASE’s advanced new TECHNOMET instrument enclosures can now be ordered with handles for portable electronics applications.

The tilt/swivel carry handle bar is comfortable to hold and also doubles as a desk stand which can be indexed in 30o increments. The 150 mm high desktop models also feature recessed side handles as standard.

Applications for TECHNOMET include medical instruments, test and measurement, industrial control, peripherals, interfaces, switchboxes, communications and laboratory equipment.

METCASE engineered TECHNOMET to fine tolerances to replicate the high quality aesthetics and ergonomics usually found only in moulded plastic enclosures.

Diecast metal front and rear bezels fit flush in the case body. Front and rear snap-on trims conceal the fixing screws for the front panel and case. Access to components is fast and easy. TECHNOMET’s wraparound top cover slides over the base/chassis assembly.

TECHNOMET is available in eight standard sizes (75 x 225 x 200 mm to 150 x 350 x 275 mm). Each case offers two options for installing PCBs: four M3 mounting pillars in the base for a single PCB; accessory snap-in anti-vibration guides for multiple slide-in PCBs.

The removable rear panel is recessed to protect switches and connectors. The anodised front panel (accessory) is also recessed to protect displays and keypads. The base and rear panels have ventilation slots for cooling. All panels are fitted with M4 earthing pillars for electrical continuity. All cases are supplied with ABS non-slip case feet.

TECHNOMET is available in light grey (RAL 7035) or anthracite grey (RAL 7016) as standard.

Customising options include bespoke sizes; custom front panels; CNC punching, folding, milling, drilling and tapping; fixings and inserts; custom colours and finishes; digital printing of legends and logos.
