Metcase recently launched its new sloping front instrument enclosures that are part of the company’s Technomet desktop instrument enclosure collection.
The new Technomet SL is designed to be used in medical and laboratory instrument, test and measurement, industrial control and communications applications. They are made of aluminum and the die cast metal front and rear bezels fit flush in the case body. At an 18 degree slope, controls and displays are easily viewed. The Technomet SL enclosures also include extruded snap-on trims at the front and rear that cover the front panels and case fixing screws, according to the company.
Technomet SL has quick access to PCBs. A single PCB can be installed on four pre-fitted M3 pillars in the base and multiple PCBs can slide in on clip-in, anti-vibration guides.
The front and back panels are recessed to protect any switches, connectors, displays and keypads. The rear panel and base are vented as a standard option, but have alternative options like non-vented panels as well. All of the case panels are fitted with M4 earth studs for electrical continuity.
The enclosures are available in three standard sizes with custom sizes available by request. They come in two colors, light gray and anthracite gray, and are supplied fully assembled with four modern anti-skid feet with tilt legs.
Users can purchase additional accessories like front panels and snap-in PCB guides. Fully customizable options include bespoke sizes; custom front panels; CNC machining, fixings, inserts; custom colors and finishes; digital printing of legends and logos.
