Extruded Aluminum Enclosures for Hand Held Electronics
METCASE have introduced the new 'Series 50' range of extruded aluminum enclosures. These highly attractive and versatile housings have been designed for hand held and desktop mounted electronics. Typical applications will include mobile data recorders, test and measurement instruments, medical and wellness devices, machine control units and RF remote control equipment.
The 'SERIES 50' enclosures are available in a range of six standard sizes with external dimensions from 3.22" x 1.06" x 5.11" to 4.80" x 1.85" x 8.66". On demand, the case extrusion can be cut to special lengths to suit customer specific PCBs.
The 'SERIES 50' enclosures consist of an extruded case body and two tough ABS end panels which are mounted by self-tapping screws. The screws are hidden by four snap-on covers to provide a clean appearance with no visible fixings. The covers can be removed with a small flat screwdriver. The enclosures can be sealed to IP 65 (NEMA 4) with the accessory sealing kit.
The case extrusion has internal guide rails for mounting PCBs, and a recessed area on the top and bottom which can be used for mounting membrane keypads or product labels. The end panels are also recessed for keypads and labels, or to protect connectors and switches.
The 'SERIES 50' enclosures are finished in fine textured powder paint. The body is painted in off-white or black, and the matching end panels are in gray or black respectively.
For portable hand held applications, slide-in battery compartments can be ordered as accessories. These will accept 1.5V AAA, 1.5V AA or 9V cells. Prices start at $16.
METCASE can supply these enclosures with additional holes for keypads, push-buttons, connectors and controls etc., plus silk-screen printed legends and logos. The cases can also be painted in alternative colors.
