Hammond Manufacturing, represented by Hi-Q Electronics in New Zealand, has released a new family of 19 inch, aluminium rack cases available in 1, 2 and 3U heights and depths of 203mm, 330mm and 457mm.
The rack cases are suitable for housing a wide range of equipment, either mounted in a 19 inch rack or, if required, they can be used as desktop enclosures. The all-aluminium construction consists of a heavy-duty extruded frame, removable vented or plain top and bottom covers and optional 19 inch rack mounting angles and self-adhesive rubber feet.
The front and rear panels are removable and interchangeable. The panels are of flat construction to make machining and screening a simple process. Front panel handles, which can be mounted on rack mounting angles are optionally available to assist with insertion and removal of a rack.
In order to provide greater support heavy loads, rear-mounting brackets can also be specified. The rack cases family is coated with durable black powder paint as standard.
The rack cases are shipped 'pack flat' as a standard to minimise shipping costs and the possiblility of damage in transit. They can also be supplied as factory assembled, punched and screened to customer specification as an application-specific unit, if required.
