Metcase launches half-width portable Technomet enclosures
Half-width Technomet portable enclosures for 42HP sub-racks or chassis have been developed by Metcase. The 10.5-inch metal electronic enclosures are designed for mounting half-width (42HP) sub-racks, chassis and front panels. They are intended for desktop and portable applications including test and measurement, networking and communications, industrial computers, sound and studio systems, laboratory instrumentation and industrial control.
The company describes the 19-inch Technomet enclosure as elegant, combining diecast aluminium front and rear bezels, a fabricated case body and chassis and four snap-on cover trims. The flush-fitting cohesive design has no visible fixing screws.
The half-width enclosures can be specified with or without a tilt / swivel carry handle which doubles as a desk stand and adjusted to give users the optimum viewing angle.
Standard panel mounts with caged nut apertures for fixing the equipment are incorporated in the front and rear bezels. The base and removable rear panel are ventilated. Inside the enclosure are two sub-rack/chassis support rails and M4 earthing pillars on every panel. Moulded ABS non-slip feet are also included.
The half-width enclosures are available as standard in heights of 3U or 4U and a depth of 330mm. Custom sizes can be supplied to order. There are two standard colours available, Light Grey (RAL 7035) and Anthracite (RAL 7016).
All the enclosures are supplied fully assembled and ready to use. Accessories include 10.5-inch front panels (3U and 4U) and rack mounting kits.
Metcase can also supply the enclosures fully customised. Custom services include custom sizes, custom front panels, CNC machining, fixings and inserts, painting and finishing, digital printing of legends and logos.
