Slim aluminum enclosures in four sizes

METCASE has introduced the new UNICASE SL aluminum instrument enclosures. These new enclosures are an extension to the existing UNICASE range. Typical applications will include test and measurement equipment, machine controllers, peripheral devices, switchboxes, medical systems, and laboratory equipment etc.   These low profile aluminum enclosures are manufactured four standard sizes, with externals dimensions from 5.12” x 7.08” x 1.97” to 9.84” x 11.81” x 1.97”. The top and base covers are powder painted light gray, and have an attractive bevelled edge.

The covers are secured to the two internal assembly extrusions, which include guide rails for mounting PCBs and chassis plates. The anodized front and rear panels are also secured to the assembly extrusions.

The internal chassis formed by the front panels and assembly extrusions can be used for assembly and testing of the electronics, prior to final assembly of the top and base covers. The front and rear panels are recessed in the covers by 0.31” for protection of the displays, controls and connectors. Four non-slip rubber feet are included in the kit.

OKW can supply custom enclosures based on the UNICASE SL enclosures with additional holes for push-buttons, connectors and displays etc., plus silk-screen printed legends and logos. The cases can also be painted in other colors, and can even be supplied in different sizes.
