New ventilated COMBIMET 19” cack cases allow for improved thermal management in the rack

Our latest new COMBIMET rack cases offer a very high level of ventilation to help protect equipment and minimize the amount of energy used on cooling solutions.

METCASE has launched ventilated versions of its all new COMBIMET 19” rack case range.

These new rack cases are designed to assist in-rack thermal management by allowing unrestricted airflow through the enclosures.

COMBIMET rack enclosures feature a matrix of specially designed ventilation slots in the top and base panels to improve airflow.

These attractive and highly versatile 19” rack mounted cases are designed to conform to DIN 41494 and IEC 297-1 standards for 19” equipment.

Typical applications for the new models will include rack mounted test and measurement systems, networking and communications equipment.

COMBIMET 19” rack mount cases are manufactured in robust yet lightweight aluminum. They feature two ergonomic front panel handles for comfortable carrying prior to installation in the rack.

The range is offered in 1U, 2U and 3U heights in two depths of 10.43” (265 mm) and 14.37” (365 mm). Special sizes can be manufactured on demand. The enclosures are powder painted in light gray, RAL 7035 or black, RAL 9005.

Each COMBIMET consists of an anodized 19” front panel with two front panel handles, two side panels, the top and base and a recessed removable rear panel.

The top and base panels are fully perforated with ventilation slots and include a series of holes for fitting PCB mounting pillars or the internal mounting plate kit (accessory).

All the fabricated parts are fitted with M4 earth studs for electrical continuity. Every model is supplied fully assembled. Prices start at $102.

METCASE offers a full customizing service on the COMBIMET 19” rack cases with made-to-measure sizes, CNC punching, milling and drilling, silk-screen printing and much more – providing fully finished enclosures ready for fitting the electronic components.
