Diecast enclosures are assembled to be corrosion-resistant

Designed with an integrated lid hinge and corrision-resistant assembly, the aluDoor is a diecast enclosures for modern industrial electronics, said Rolec.

The enclosures are suitable for industrial electronics used in challenging environments, confirmed the company. Examples of these applications will include factory automation, sensors and detection, ship technology, railway systems, machine control, robotics and flow metering.

The tough but elegant aluDoor is an aluminium enclosure which can be mounted on walls, bulkheads, machines and workstations. It is rated IP 66, IP 67 and – on request – IP 69K. 

The hinged lid opens at 100 degrees to provide easier access to the contents. The lid can be specified with or without a recess for a membrane keypad or product label. The lid screws and threaded inserts are A2 stainless steel for added protection against corrosion.

Fitting the lid is a swift and simple process, said Rolec. The lid with an integrated hinge pin is pushed into place then secured with two tamperproof Torx T25 (M5) screws. Once closed, the lid is then locked down with two more T25 screws. All the lid and mounting screws are concealed beneath extruded aluminium trims.

Separate mounting screw channels ensure that aluDoor can be installed with the lid closed. This safeguards the seal, which is a continuous foamed-in polyurethane gasket. It has no join to provide superior ingress protection, added Rolec. Inside the enclosure, threaded pillars enable the easy installation of PCBs, mounting plates and DIN rails.

The latest addition to the Rolec range is available in 10 sizes from 120 x 90 x 70mm to 280 x 170 x 90mm. The standard colour is anthracite grey (RAL 7016) with matt silver powder-coated lid trims. 

Options include special colours on request, anthracite grey (RAL 7016) lid trims, a mounting plate, and an EMC gasket.

Customisation options include CNC machining, engraving, laser processing, display windows, digital printing of legends, logos and graphics, assembly / installation of accessories.
