Alucase hinged enclosures
Rolec has extended the IP67 Alucase range of die-cast aluminium enclosures models with hinged lids for applications including electronics and electrical control equipment.
The hinged lids are said to offer easier access for applications that require opening for calibration, data acquisition or servicing.
The new Alucase models have been designed with hinge assemblies that fully integrate into the design of the enclosure.
Whereas other enclosures have hinges simply bolted onto the side walls, the Alucase hinges are described as discreet extensions of the main profile of the case, achieving a modern and professional look.
The hinged models are available in 12 individual sizes, from 140 x 110 x 60mm to 280 x 170 x 90mm, and are powder painted grey, RAL 7040.
Access to the hinges and lid fixing screws is via two clip-on trims.
A key lock can also be employed for extra security.
The IP67 aluminium enclosures have been designed for harsh environments and have captured rust-free stainless-steel fixing screws.
All models include an earth point and threaded screw pillars in the lid and base for mounting PCBs, chassis, displays and DIN rails, for example.
The modern design also features a recessed area in the lid for mounting a membrane keypad.
Rolec offers a full customising service on these enclosures with CNC milling, drilling, silk-screen printing, assembly of cable glands and terminals and more, providing a fully finished housing ready for fitting the components.
Rolec Enclosures is now offering its advanced diecast aluminium enclosures with the option of factory-fitted IP protection class upgrades. Depending on the type of enclosure, the ratings can be increased from IP66 to IP67 and IP67 to IP69K.
Rolec’s Aluplus range of die-cast enclosures — now being offered in four new sizes — is suitable for modern industrial applications including process control, monitoring and detection, industrial measuring, flow metering and machine control.
Rolec has extended its Mobilcase extruded handheld enclosure series with a range of case combinations and accessories, meaning it can be used in even more applications, including cable-connected or battery-powered equipment such as data collection units, machine controllers, robot programmers and test and measurement devices.
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.
Three additional sizes have been added to the IP66-rated Aludisc range of round, die-cast aluminium enclosures from Rolec. The housings are suitable for indoor and outdoor industrial electronics and electrical equipment.
