New, improved METCASE instrument enclosures now more customisable
16 December 2021
METCASE’s popular UNIMET and UNIMET-PLUS desktop and portable instrument enclosures now feature new improved bezels – enhancing their aesthetics and making them even more customisable.
Design engineers specify UNIMET and UNIMET-PLUS for a wide range of applications including medical devices, test and measurement, industrial control, peripherals and interfaces, switchboxes, communications and laboratory equipment.
The enclosures’ new bezels now comprise eight sections – four diecast corners, two horizontal and two vertical extrusions. This means UNIMET and UNIMET-PLUS can now be offered in custom heights as well as bespoke widths and depths. It makes them two of METCASE’s most customisable models.
The new corner castings also offer other benefits: they are cast from zinc which allows finer tolerances and an even better fit and paint finish.
On both enclosures, the new bezel is assembled into a fabricated aluminium main case with a removable U-shaped top. Both also feature a removable rear panel that is recessed to protect connectors and switches.
Other features common to both models include four non-slip rubber feet and the option to specify a tilt/swivel carry handle that doubles as a desk stand. This indexable handle can be adjusted to the perfect viewing angle. Both enclosures are available as standard in a light grey (RAL 7035) and window grey (RAL 7040) colour combination.
UNIMET has a single front bezel, and mounting pillars in the base for PCBs and chassis. UNIMET-PLUS has front and rear bezels; PCBs slide in and out on four snap-in polyamide guide rails for faster installation.
Both models are available in six sizes: UNIMET, 230 x 190 x 50 mm to 350 x 260 x 150mm; UNIMET-PLUS, 230 x 193 x 50mm to 350 x 263 x 150mm.
Accessories include front panel kits, a PCB mounting kit, PCB/panel fitting screws, PCB guide rails (UNIMET-PLUS only) and tilting/non-tilting case feet.
METCASE can supply both models fully customised. Services include custom sizes, custom front panels, CNC machining, fixings and inserts, painting and finishing, digital printing of legends and logos.
