Comfortable bail arms for carrying and canting on a desk

METCASE’s advanced new TECHNOMET instrument enclosures can now be ordered with bail arms for portable electronics applications.

The bail arm is comfortable to hold and also doubles as a desk stand which can be indexed in 30o increments. The 5.90” high desktop models also feature recessed side handles as standard.

Applications for TECHNOMET include medical instruments, test and measurement, industrial control, peripherals, interfaces, switchboxes, communications and laboratory equipment.

METCASE engineered TECHNOMET to fine tolerances to replicate the high quality aesthetics and ergonomics usually found only in molded plastic enclosures.

Die cast metal front and rear bezels fit flush in the case body. Front and rear snap-on trims conceal the fixing screws for the front panel and case. Access to components is fast and easy. TECHNOMET’s wraparound top cover slides over the base/chassis assembly.

TECHNOMET is available in eight standard sizes (5.95” x 8.85” x 7.87” to 5.90” x 13.77” x 10.82”). Each case offers two options for installing PCBs: four M3 mounting pillars in the base for a single PCB; accessory snap-in anti-vibration guides for multiple slide-in PCBs.

The removable rear panel is recessed to protect switches and connectors. The anodized front panel (accessory) is also recessed to protect displays and keypads. The base and rear panels have ventilation slots for cooling. All panels are fitted with M4 earthing screw pillars for electrical continuity. All cases are supplied with ABS non-slip case feet.

TECHNOMET is available in light gray or anthracite gray as standard. Prices start at $176.

Customizing options include bespoke sizes; custom front panels; CNC punching, folding, milling, drilling and tapping; fixings and inserts; custom colors and finishes; digital printing of legends and logos.
