23-08-2021 | Metcase | Subs & Systems

Metcase has released a new 10.5" version of its advanced TECHNOMET 19” desktop mini-rack enclosures.

The new enclosures are intended for mounting half-width (42HP) subracks, chassis and front panels. They are ideal for desktop and portable applications, including test and measurement, industrial computers, networking and communications, sound and studio systems, laboratory instrumentation and industrial control.

The enclosure combines diecast aluminium front and rear bezels, a fabricated case body and chassis, and four snap-on cover trims to produce a flush-fitting cohesive design with no visible fixing screws.

The new 10.5” enclosures can be selected with or without a tilt/swivel carry handle which doubles as a desk stand. It can be readily adjusted to give users the best viewing angle.

Standard panel mounts with caged nut apertures for fixing the equipment are included in the front and rear bezels. The base and removable rear panel are ventilated. Within the case, there are two subrack/chassis support rails, together with M4 earthing pillars on each panel. Moulded ABS non-slip feet are also included.

The new half-width enclosures are offered as standard in heights of 3U or 4U and a depth of 330mm (custom sizes can be supplied to order). There are two standard colours: Light Grey (RAL 7035) and Anthracite (RAL 7016).

All the enclosures are provided, fully assembled and ready for use. Accessories incorporate 10.5” front panels (3U and 4U) and rack mounting kits.

The company can also provide the enclosures fully customised.
