Extruded Handheld Enclosures from ROLEC
News Release from:
OKW Enclosures Ltd.
21 August 2012
ROLEC have today announced an extension to their 'mobilCASE' range of handheld enclosures with new case combinations and accessories. These robust and highly attractive enclosures can now be used in even more applications. The 'mobilCASE' enclosures can be used for either cable connected or battery powered equipment such as data-collection units, machine controllers, robot programmers and test and measurement devices.
The new configurations include portable models with shoulder straps and bump protection. There are also desktop models with a tilt stand which can be set at different angles, and display models with swivel brackets which can be fitted to a desktop, wall or control panel. A new holder accessory also allows the ‘mobilCASE’ enclosures to be stationed on a pole or bracket when not in use.
The construction of these enclosures consists of a single or two piece anodised aluminium case body, with internal guides rails. Two black die cast aluminium end panels are fitted to the extrusions by self-tapping screws. The cases can be sealed up to IP 65 protection class.
The innovative ‘mobilCASE’ design incorporates a round edge section, which is very easy to hold, and also acts as a battery compartment. An M16 cable gland can be fitted in place of the battery compartment, allowing for cable connection to the host machine.
The extended range now consists of twelve standard sizes with external dimensions from 118 x 120 x 80 mm to 168 x 240 x 130 mm. The recessed top section can be used for mounting push-button switches, membrane keypads, and joy-stick or tracker ball controls etc.
ROLEC can supply these enclosures fully customised with additional holes for push-buttons, displays, connectors and cable glands, plus the cases can be silk-screen printed with customer legends and logos. Standard prices start at around £40.
