METCASE TECHNOMET 19” desktop mini-racks are now offered in custom heights and depths to accommodate the customer’s rack-mounted equipment.

These advanced mini-racks are created for mounting standard 19” subracks, chassis and front panels. Applications include test and measurement, communications, sound and studio systems, laboratory instruments, networking, industrial computers and control systems.

The enclosure 19” is usually available in four standard sizes: 3U, 4U, 5U and 6U, however, the company can now produce the mini-racks in custom heights and depths (based on the standard 539mm width).

The basic design of the enclosures comprises of two diecast aluminium front and rear bezels, the case body has internal chassis and a removable rear panel. Four snap-on cover trims provide a flush-fitting cohesive design with no visible fixing screws.

The front and rear bezels incorporate standard 19” panel mounts with caged nut apertures for fixing the equipment (from either side).

Ventilation slots in the rear and base panels assist cooling. Internally there are two subrack/chassis support rails; more can be added for larger versions. All panels have M4 threaded pillars for earthing. Recessed ABS side handles help portability. Moulded ABS non-slip feet are supplied as standard. The enclosures are available in anthracite (RAL 7016) or light grey (RAL 7035) as standard. Custom colours are also available.
