Metcase – Extended range of terminal enclosures for desktop /wall-mount electronics (UNIDESK)Aug 6 2012 - Subs & Systems [More Subs & Systems Articles]
Offering three new models in black, Metcase has extended its UNIDESK range of aluminium terminal enclosures. The ergonomic sloping-front enclosures are designed for desktop and wall-mounted electronic systems such as point-of-sale terminals, medical and wellness equipment, machine or robotic controllers, and test and measurement instruments.
The enclosures are offered in three standard sizes with external dimensions from 200 x 200 x 102mm to 400mm x 200mm x 102mm. The assembly consists of two diecast aluminium end panels fitted to the front and rear extrusion profiles. The cases are now available painted in black, RAL 9005 or light grey, RAL 7035.
The base panel is removable and includes mounting points for fitting M3 PCB screw pillars. Four non-slip rubber feet are included. An accessory wall mounting kit is also offered. This allows the enclosures to be mounted in three orientations to suit different positions on a wall or machine housing.
Anodised aluminium front panels are offered as accessories, and are suitable for mounting membrane keypads, push-button controls and display modules. The cases are provided with both M3 and TorxRT10 stainless steel fixing screws. The enclosures can be sealed to IP54 protection class by using the four ‘L’ shaped foam gaskets supplied for the front and base panel apertures.
Metcase can also supply these enclosures fully customised to suit customer requirements. The cases can also be manufactured in different widths and painted in other colours, says the company.More news from Metcase
