Metcase adds extra-deep rack cases to Combinet range

The Combinet from Metcase offers a wealth of space for rack-mounted electronics. The extra-deep 24-inch version of the Combinet 19-inch enclosures are suitable for server rack type applications, adds Metcase.

Combinet is the company’s bestselling range of aluminium 19-inch rack cases. They are used in networking, communications, AV and studio systems, laboratory instruments, industrial computers and control systems.

The new cases are 610mm (24-inch) deep – this is “significantly deeper” than the existing standard depths of 265 and 365mm, points out Metcase. The new depth is suitable for deep 19-inch racks, for example 1,000mm.

All Combinet enclosures offer complete access to the PCBs, as the top, base and rear panels are removable. The top and base can be specified as either vented or unvented. Other features include ergonomic front panel handles and mounting holes for PCBs and chassis. M4 earth studs on all components ensure electrical continuity.

The new models are available in all heights from one to six U and are painted in black, RAL 9005. The front panels are also in black. Cases are supplied fully assembled. 

All Combinet cases can also be supplied fully customised. Services include CNC punching, folding, milling, drilling and tapping, fixings and inserts, painting and finishing, digital printing of legends and logos.
