UNIMET-PLUS – Highly attractive instrument enclosures now with tilt and swivel bail arms

It’s an extremely versatile range – even more so now with the new tilt and swivel bail arms.

Bridgeville, PA (PRWEB) February 27, 2013

METCASE has launched portable versions of its new UNIMET-PLUS instrument enclosures.

These modern and versatile housings have been designed for desktop and portable electronic equipment.

Typical applications will include portable test and measurement instruments, medical and wellness technology, industrial control, interfaces, peripherals and communications equipment.

The UNIMET-PLUS range of electronic housings is available in six standard sizes with external dimensions from 1.97” x 9.05” x 7.60” to 5.90” x 13.78” x 10.35”.

The portable models are fitted with a robust tilt and swivel bail arm which can be indexed in 30-degree increments.

The bail arm is used for carrying UNIMET-PLUS on the move and canting it as a desktop enclosure to improve the viewing angle of the displays and controls.

UNIMET-PLUS aluminum cases comprise a base panel assembly with two chassis plates and snap-in guides.

The top cover, front bezels and rear panel are all mounted to the base panel assembly. The bezels are powder painted in window gray, RAL 7040 and the case body is in light gray, RAL 7035.

UNIMET-PLUS metal instrument cases are designed for systems with more than one PCB. Up to four PCBs can be fitted to the internal chassis plates using the four snap-in polyamide guides supplied. Additional guide positions and guides can be specified on demand.

There are no visible fixing screws on the case body; the base and chassis assembly is fitted to the bezels and the top cover is captured by the assembly. The accessory front panels are recessed in the bezels to protect the controls. The fixing screws are hidden under two ABS trims.

The recessed rear panel is designed for mounting power inlets, connectors and on/off switches. Four self-adhesive non-slip feet are also included in the kit. Molded ABS tilt feet are offered as accessories. Prices start at $85.

METCASE also offers UNIMET-PLUS as customized instrument enclosures with bespoke sizes, CNC punching, milling and drilling, silk-screen printing and much more.

METCASE Vice President, Sales, Sean Bailey said: “UNIMET-PLUS is a modern and attractive range of enclosures with concealed fixings and capacity for up to four slide-in PCBs.
