Foremost Electronics, a distributor of electromechanical components, has introduced a range of 1U, 19in (48cm) rack-mountable ‘pizza-box’ enclosures.

The Elma Slimkit 10 is a flexible enclosure solution for free-standing or 19in rack-mounted systems.

The basic chassis can be transformed into a complete case by adding a rear panel and top cover to the basic mounting chassis.

The design allows numerous enclosure combinations to be assembled depending on the application.

Fitted with a wear-resistant aluminium front panel, the chassis is available with or without perforations for optimised thermal solutions and is available in a number of finishes for individual product tailoring.

Typical applications for the Slimkit 10 include low-profile test equipment, control and instrumentation systems, telecommunications, networking, alarms, audio and wireless products and signal conversion equipment.

Alan Cook, managing director of Foremost Electronics, said: ‘The addition of these high-quality pizza-box 19in enclosures complements our existing range of Emech products and allows our customers to buy complete connectivity, switching and enclosure solutions from one source.

‘Our goal is to provide a one-stop shop for all the interface, connectivity and packaging needs of system and instrument manufacturers,’ he added.

Standard features include an aluminium front panel, a 0.75mm pre-galvanised sheet steel frame, vibration-proof construction, fast assembly, easy access, removable front and rear panels and EMC shielding without additional gaskets.

The 1U-high chassis may be specified with a base tray of either 240mm or 360mm, with or without perforations for air flow.

Accessories include handles that may be specified in a range of colours, tilting or fixed feet for free-standing applications and an earthing kit to allow enclosures to meet the requirements of EN/VDE/SEV safety standards.
