METCASE launches new 19-inch rack enclosures
Published: 13 September 2018 - Sarah Mead
METCASE has created a new 19-inch mini-rack version of its advanced TECHNOMET table-top instrument enclosures.
The new TECHNOMET cases are designed for mounting standard 19” subracks, chassis and front panels. Applications will include test and measurement equipment, networking and communications devices, sound and studio systems, laboratory instruments, industrial computers and control systems.
These elegant and ultra-modern enclosures combine diecast aluminium front and rear bezels, a folded case body and chassis and four snap-on cover trims to create a flush-fitting cohesive design with no visible fixing screws.
Standard 19-inch panel mounts with caged nut apertures for fixing the equipment are included in the front and rear bezels. There are three standard case sizes: 3U, 4U and 6U, all with a depth of 400mm. Custom depths can be supplied on request.
The rear and base panels are ventilated to aid cooling. Inside there are two subrack/chassis support rails. All case panels are fitted with M4 threaded pillars for earth connections. ABS side handles are recessed for easy portability. Moulded ABS non-slip feet are also included. Prices start at £170.
Accessories include 1U to 6U (unvented and vented) 19-inch front panels and M6 caged nuts and fixing screws.
METCASE can supply TECHNOMET 19-inch enclosures 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.
