Metcase has launched portable versions of its Unimet-Plus instrument enclosures for applications such as portable test and measurement instruments, medical and wellness technology, industrial control equipment, interfaces, peripherals and communications equipment.

The Unimet-Plus range is available in six standard sizes with external dimensions ranging from 50 x 230 x 193mm to 150 x 350 x 263mm.

The enclosures are designed for systems with more than one printed circuit board (PCB). Up to four PCBs can be fitted to the internal chassis plates using the four snap-in polyamide guides supplied. Additional guide positions and guides can be specified on demand.

Metcase offers a full customising service on the Unimet-Plus range of enclosures, including bespoke sizes, CNC punching, milling and drilling and silk-screen printing.

Key features
