Instrumet data sheet - .PDF file.

Metcase has introduced the Instrumet range of 19in instrument enclosures. Two versions are available with ABS side handles for desktop use, or a tough die-cast tilt-and-swivel carry bar for portable applications.

The lightweight cases conform to DIN 41494 and IEC 297-1 standards for 19in equipment.

Instrumet 19in enclosures have a clean and modern appearance with no visible fixing screws on the case panels — the fixings are hidden on the underside.

The enclosures are manufactured in aluminium.

Key product specifications

  • The enclosures are designed to accept standard 3U subracks and chassis, and are available in three sizes: 3U x 10.5in x 350mm; 3U x 19in x 350mm; and 3U x 19in x 450mm.
  • The assembly consists of two die-cast front bezels, the top and base covers and a removable rear panel. The base and rear panels have ventilation slots for cooling.
  • All models have internal support rails, which ensure easy installation of heavy subracks or chassis. The case parts are painted in a modern colour combination of window grey, RAL 7040 (bezel), and light grey, RAL 7035 (top, base and rear panel).
  • The front bezels have caged nut apertures for mounting subracks, chassis, or 1U, 2U or 3U front panels. The equipment is inset in the bezels to protect the controls from accidental operation or damage.
  • Instrumet 19in cases are supplied fully assembled, and include four moulded non-slip feet with tilt legs.
  • All of the case panels are fitted with M4 x 10mm earth studs for electrical continuity.
  • Metcase offers a full customising service on these enclosures with machining, silk-screen printing and more.
