ROLEC has launched commandCASE – a new range of high quality diecast aluminium housings for industrial control applications. They feature attractive and ergonomic wing-shaped handles for easy manoeuvring when the units are mounted on suspension arms. The distinctive handles are fixed to the lid, making it easier to open and close the housing. The lid also features a 1.7 mm recess for the mounting of membrane keypads or the addition of labels.
ROLEC commandCASE is extremely tough and versatile. It has been designed for mounting on machine housings, walls, bulkheads and suspension systems. The unit’s IP 66 protection rating and rugged construction make it a great choice for marine and offshore applications.
New commandCASE is available in three versions:
Six sizes of commandCASE cast metal housings are available in each version – from 230 x 200 x 120 mm to 430 x 300 x 120 mm. There is a 1-degree die casting draft to allow for cast ejection. The chloroprene lid gasket is designed for temperatures ranging from -30°C to +90°C. That range can be increased by specifying a silicon gasket (-50°C to +140°C). Customers can also specify an EMC gasket to prevent electromagnetic interference. Other accessories include an internal mounting plate.
The new commandCASE is one of six ranges of controller cases designed and manufactured by ROLEC. It boasts a proud pedigree, having evolved from ROLEC’s popular aluCASE series which is available with a range of protection ratings: IP 66, IP 67 and IP 69K.
ROLEC has designed commandCASE to be compatible with its taraPLUS range of suspension arms for machine controllers. These IP 54 multi-variable arms can handle light to medium loads ranging from 30.5 kg to 51 kg, depending on how the system is configured.
ROLEC electronic housings are marketed in the UK by OKW Enclosures Ltd which is based in Fareham, Hampshire.
OKW Sales and Marketing Director Robert Cox said: “We are seeing increasing demand for dedicated suspension arm housings so commandCASE is a very welcome addition to the ROLEC range.
“Pairing commandCASE with the taraPLUS suspension arm creates an unbeatable combination which we expect to be very popular,” he added.
