It is offered in two versions (with or without a large cutout for a display module) and four sizes from XS (200mm x 58/94mm x 39.5mm) to L (266mm x 90/144mm x 60mm).

They provide a broad choice of battery options: XS (2/3 x AA, 1 x 9V); S (4 x AA, 1 x 9V); M and L (4/5 x AA). The battery compartment lids for sizes XS and S offer a latch and/or screw fixing; these sizes are rated IP 65 (optional). Sizes M and L provide easy access to the battery compartment through a clip-in end section; these sizes are rated IP 54 (optional). All four sizes are offered in two standard colours, off-white (RAL 9002) and black (RAL 9005).
