Ergonomic enclosure offers lid design choices 

For use in machine control, factory automation, robots and vehicles, the diecast handCase is a tough, ergonomic industrial enclosure by Rolec.

The handheld enclosure is available with a choice of lid designs. As well as smart factory automation and robotics, it can be used in machine control, robotics, agricultural equipment and vehicles. The diecast aluminium housing is light and comfortable to hold for long periods but robust enough to withstand extremely challenging working conditions, says Rolec.

Two base versions are available. One is closed for an external power supply and the other has a battery compartment for four AA or two 9V batteries. Each base can be specified with a choice of two lids (Version R or Version S),  and both are recessed to accommodate a membrane keypad or product label. Version R has a narrow edge and Version S has an ergonomic bevel. Inside, there are threaded screw bosses for PCBs and mounting plates.

The enclosures are rated IP 66 as standard (with IP 67 optional). They are available in three sizes: 180 x 80 x 42.4mm, 220 x 100 x 42.4mm and 220 x 100 x 62.4mm. Version R is light grey (RAL 7035) as standard and Version S has a black (RAL 9005) base and a silver metallic top.  

Accessories include cable glands, a holding clip (which can be used with a strap), a wall bracket for clip fastening, and a carrying strap with protector.

Rolec’s handCase can be supplied fully customised. Services include custom colours, CNC machining, engraving / laser processing, photo-quality printing of legends, logos and graphics, EMC shielding, display windows and assembly.
