Minimet aluminum enclosures

METCASE have extended the MINIMET range of small aluminum instrument enclosures.  These compact, stylish and versatile enclosures have been designed for desktop and portable electronics. Typical applications will include test and measurement systems, medical and wellness devices, laboratory equipment, switch boxes, peripherals and interfaces etc.

MINIMET cases are now available in eight standard sizes with external dimensions from 5.27” x 5.12” x 1.50” to 6.85” x 9.45” x 2.75”. The cases are powder painted in light gray with a fine textured finish.

These aluminum enclosures consists of a complex folded top cover which incorporates recessed areas for mounting the front and rear panels. The recess is 0.55” at one end and 0.31” at the other end. This allows for protection of front and rear panel components of differing heights. The folded base section fits snugly into the top cover and is secured by M3 fixing screws. Four M3 x 8 mm screw pillars are fitted in the base for mounting PCBs and assemblies. Four non-slip self-adhesive rubber feet are also included.

Two types of aluminum front/rear panels are offered as accessories: flat panels painted in the case color, and anodized panels with clip-on ABS trims which hide the case fixing screws, and also allow fitting of a membrane keypad or product label. The ABS trims are molded in contrasting medium gray.

OKW can supply the MINIMET enclosures with additional holes for push-buttons, connectors and keypads etc., plus silk-screen printed legends and logos. The cases can also be painted in other colors.
