Rolec has introduced a range of die-cast enclosures for applications including process control equipment, monitoring and detection systems, flow metering, terminal housings and machine controllers.

The industry-standard Aluplus series of enclosures incorporates many of the features of the Alucase designer range.

Unlike older die-cast enclosures, the Aluplus series features a sharp external design that includes snap-on design trims.

These fit into the lid section and hide both the assembly and mounting screws; as a result, they provide a clean appearance with no visible fixing screws.

With Aluplus, it is no longer necessary to machine the lid to fit membrane keypads or polycarbonate labels; a 1.7mm recessed area is already provided.

In addition, external mounting brackets are no longer required as the enclosures can be mounted to a wall or machine while still assembled.

There is no need to remove the lid, thus avoiding any possible damage to the components or sealing gasket.

The clip-on trims are simply snapped into place after the unit is mounted.

The Aluplus enclosures are rated to IP 66 as standard, but can also be specified to IP 67 and IP 69K with special factory-fitted gaskets.

The enclosures are manufactured in die-cast aluminium and powder painted in a fine textured light grey (RAL 7035).

The range is currently available in the four most popular industry-standard sizes: 122 x 120 x 82mm, 220 x 120 x 82mm, 160 x 160 x 90mm and 260 x 160 x 90mm.

Other industry-standard sizes are planned.

Screw bosses are provided in the base and lid sections for printed circuit boards (PCBs), mounting plates, earth leads and other components (screws included).

Prices for the Aluplus start at GBP49.

Accessories include special lid fixing screws with integrated retaining straps.

These keep the lid in situ during installation and servicing.

Rolec offers a full customising service on these enclosures with CNC milling, drilling, silk-screen printing and the assembly of cable glands and terminals, providing a fully finished housing ready for fitting the components.
