Press Release - May 2018
ROLEC has added new options to its aluCASE range of diecast aluminium enclosures: transparent lids, integrated hinges and a console adapter for desktop use.
Smart modern aluCASE is ROLEC’s premier ‘go anywhere’ enclosure for industrial electronics. It can be mounted on walls, machines, bulkheads and desks.
All aluCASE enclosures can be installed ‘lid closed’ to safeguard the electronics and seal – ideal for challenging environments. The fixing and lid screws are hidden beneath clip-on trims, protecting them from the elements and enhancing the aesthetic appearance.
The lid is recessed to accommodate a membrane keypad, front plate or product label. Two sizes – AC 092K (160 x 90 x 60 mm) and ACF 110K (140 x 110 x 60 mm) – are now available with transparent lids moulded from thermoplastic.
Most aluCASE models are available with polypropylene (PP) lid retaining straps. New integrated hinges for heavier loads can be mounted on either narrow side of the enclosure. These hinges have concealed fixings for superior strength, resilience and aesthetics.
Threaded (M5) screw bosses are provided in the base and lid for PCBs, mounting plates and DIN rails. Cable glands and other accessories are also available.
ROLEC aluCASE is available in 29 sizes from 140 x 110 x 60 mm to 430 x 300 x 120 mm and with ingress protection ratings of IP 66, IP 67 and IP 69K (optional). The standard colour is window grey (RAL 7040). Prices start at £64.
Options include: the new console adapter (100 mm or 200 mm) for desktop use; integrated hinges; anodised aluminium trims instead of the standard polyoxymethylene (POM) trims; key lock access for added security; an internal mounting plate kit; a corrosion-proof coasting (azure blue RAL 5009).
ROLEC aluCASE can be supplied installation-ready. Customisation services include: CNC machining, custom colours, printing, engraving/laser engraving, EMC shielding, membrane keypads and assembly.
