Sloping front enclosures suit desktop and wall-mounted electronics

Suitable for a wide range of applications including office systems, point-of-sale terminals, medical devices, industrial control equipment, security units and machine controllers is the Unidesk from Metcase.

These aluminium enclosures are targeted at desktop and wall-mounted electronics. The large front panel (accessory) is recessed to accommodate a membrane keypad. The flat rear panel can be machined to allow the installation of connectors, switches and power inlets. There are pre-punched PCB fixing points in the base.

Unidesk can be supplied with or without an IP 54 sealing gasket in three standard widths (200, 300 and 400 mm) – creating a trio of standard sizes from 200 x 200 x 102 mm to 400 x 200 x 102 mm.

Specified in two standard colours: light grey (RAL 7035) and black (RAL 9005), Metcase supplies the enclosures pre-assembled with four non-slip rubber feet and stainless steel M3 Torx T10 and MS M3 Pozidriv fixings. Prices start at £84.

Accessories include three standard front panels, three standard wall mount kits (each with oval fixing holes for easier adjustment) and a PCB mounting kit.

The Unidesk can be fully customised. Services include: custom front panels; CNC punching, folding, milling, drilling and tapping; fixings and inserts; painting and finishing; digital printing of legends and logos.
