Typical applications will include electronics and electrical systems such as heating and air conditioning controllers, monitoring systems, safety and security equipment and test and measurement devices.
The ‘starCASE’ range has been specifically designed for industrial electronics, and has many unique design features. For example, two hinged trims on either end of the case hide the case fixings screws and wall mounting shafts. As a result, no visible fixings can be seen once the unit is on the wall.
The enclosures are moulded in flame retardant ABS rated to UL 94 V-0. The standard colour is light grey, RAL 7035, and uniquely for this type of enclosure, the cases have a modern fine textured surface finish. Prices start at £20.
The standard protection class is IP66 for indoor and outdoor use, and the moulded gasket can be easily replaced during long term maintenance. They are also fully insulated to VDE 0100.
The new size has dimensions of 140 x 110 x 60mm and is added to the existing five sizes from 120 x 90 x 50 mm to 280 x 170 x 60 mm.
The cases are assembled by four corrosion proof stainless steel fixing screws which are positioned outside of the sealed interior. An optional key lock can also be fitted for tamper-proof security.
To aid installation and servicing, two plastic lid supports (simple hinges) are provided with each case, and the wall fixing dimensions are moulded onto the underside. Internal screw pillars are moulded in the top and base parts for mounting PCBs, DIN-Rails, displays etc.
