Specify instrument enclosures in custom colours

12-01-2022 | Metcase | Subs & Systems

Metcase’s advanced Technomet instrument enclosures may be specified in custom colours – even in low volumes. Options cover trim and bezel highlights to bespoke colours for the complete enclosure.

These desktop and portable instrument enclosures are excellent for medical and wellness devices, industrial control, peripheral devices and interfaces, test and measurement equipment, switchboxes, communications and laboratory equipment.

They are constructed with fine tolerances to provide a modern and cohesive design. Diecast front and rear bezels fit flush with the case body for a smooth appearance. Snap-on trims hide the fixing screws. All sizes are offered with either a tilt/swivel carry handle (doubles as a desk stand) or ABS side handles. Three sizes providing a sloping front bezel.

The base panel is pre-fitted with four M3 PCB mounting pillars – and the internal chassis is pre-punched for installing snap-in PCB guides (accessories) in three, five, seven or nine positions. The removable rear panel is recessed to protect connectors and switches; the accessory's anodised front panel is also recessed to protect keypads and displays. All case panels are provided with M4 threaded pillars for earthing connectors. Each enclosure has four ABS feet with non-slip pads.

The aluminium enclosures are offered in 11 sizes from 225mm x 200mm x 75mm to 350mm x 320mm x 150mm. The standard colours are light grey (RAL 7035) or anthracite (RAL 7016) – and ‘always in stock’ custom colours cost no more than standard.

Accessories include front panels, a PCB mounting kit, PCB guides and PCB/panel fixing screws.

As well as unique colours, customising options include bespoke sizes, CNC punching/machining, fixings and inserts, digital printing of legends and logos.
