In response to popular demand, UNIDESK is our latest range to be made available in black as standard.

METCASE has extended its UNIDESK range of aluminium instrument enclosures with three new models in black.

This ergonomic sloping front instrument enclosure range has been designed for desktop and wall mounted electronics systems.

Typical applications for UNIDESK include point-of-sale terminals; medical and wellness equipment; machine or robotic controllers and test and measurement instruments.

UNIDESK desktop enclosures are offered in three standard sizes with external dimensions from 200 mm x 200 mm x 102 mm to 400 mm x 200 mm x 102 mm.

The electronic enclosures consist of two diecast aluminium end panels fitted to the front and rear extrusion profiles. The cases are now available painted in black or light grey.

The base panel is removable and includes mounting points for fitting M3 PCB screw pillars. Four non-slip rubber feet are included. An accessory wall mounting kit is also offered. This allows UNIDESK equipment enclosures to be mounted in three orientations to suit different positions on a wall or machine housing.

Anodized aluminium front panels are offered as accessories. They are suitable for mounting membrane keypads, push-button controls and display modules. The cases are provided with both M3 and Torx T10 stainless steel fixing screws.

UNIDESK metal cases can be sealed to IP54 protection class by using the four L-shaped foam gaskets supplied for the front and base panel apertures.

METCASE can also supply the UNIDESK range as custom electronics enclosures to suit individual requirements. The cases can be manufactured in different widths and painted in other colours. Prices start at £104.
