The Handcase range of die-cast handheld enclosures from Rolec has been extended with four new models that feature a full-format top recess for membrane keypads or product labels. The enclosures are suitable for applications including test and measurement equipment, machine and robot controllers, detection equipment and data-logging units.

The IP66 aluminium enclosures are robust enough for applications such as handheld electronics used in harsh indoor or outdoor environments.

They offer a high degree of EMC shielding, which can be particularly useful for mobile radio-frequency equipment.

Each Handcase enclosure consists of three separate die-castings — top, base and battery compartment lid — plus two moulded TPE sealing gaskets and four screw gaskets. The cases are assembled by four stainless steel screws.
