The Unicase range of aluminium instrument enclosures from Metcase has been extended with 10 new models in black for desktop or portable electronics. Application areas include test and measurement equipment, machine controllers, peripheral devices, switchboxes, medical and wellness systems and laboratory equipment.

Unicase enclosures are supplied flat-packed and can be assembled within minutes. The assembly consists of the top and base covers, two internal assembly extrusions and anodised front and rear panels.

The top and base covers have a bevelled edge and are secured to internal assembly extrusions by eight M3 fixing screws. The internal assembly extrusions also include guide rails for mounting slide-in PCBs and chassis plates. Four guide positions are available.

The internal chassis formed by the front panels and assembly extrusions can be used for assembly and testing of the electronics, prior to final assembly of the top and base covers.
