Online configurator allows users to customise Rolec’s mobilCase
Customers can used Rolec’s new online configurator to specify customised versions of mobilCase. The configurator has been launched to make it easy for customers to specify customised mobilCASE handheld enclosures and generate CAD and PDF files of their specific housing.
The mobilCase range is a tough, modern range of extruded aluminium enclosures for handheld electronic instruments and machine or robot controllers. Models can be mounted horizontally or vertically for display or control panels.
The case extrusion is offered as a single profile (IP 65) for slide-in PCB assemblies or as a two-part profile (IP 54) which allows keyboards and displays to pass through the top profile if required. Both sides of the profile are recessed to accommodate a membrane keypad or product label. Diecast aluminium end covers are sealed with TPE sealing gaskets.
The configurator enables customers to select which case extrusion they need in three standard widths (to suit 80, 100 or 130mm wide PCBs) and in custom lengths from 50 to 500mm. The next step is to choose an end cover kit. These are available in different combinations of flat and deep end covers, and in combination with a tilt stand or wall pivot mounts.
Customers can review their custom-sized mobilCase in 3D and zoom or rotate it. Views include model shading and model position (front, rear, left, right, top, bottom, isometric or animation). There are also virtual reality modes (anaglyph, Dreamoc HD3, Dreamoc XL2, full screen with cut, animation, isometric, edges, shaded with edges). Other 3D functions include zoom all, zoom to object, cut, exploded view and screenshot.
There is also a selection of moveable and zoomable 2D drawing views including isometric, three projection views (EU, US), three views plus isometric drawing in frame (JIS, DIN, ANSI), six projection views (EU, US) and six views plus isometric drawing in frame (JIS).
Accessories for mobilCase include a shoulder strap, holding bracket, battery cradles (two AA batteries and four AA batteries) and an M16 cable gland.
Rolec can supply mobilCase enclosures fully customised. Customisation services include CNC machining, painting, powder coating, engraving, laser processing, digital printing, membrane keypads, display windows and full assembly.
