Custom Aluminum Electronic Enclosure – Uniobox 3 Data

Data For Our Uniobox 3 Aluminum Electronic Enclosure

Silver or black anodized combination extruded and sheet aluminium box to take circuit boards of width 100mm, 128mm, 160mm and 220mm and length 80mm, 120mm, 160mm and 220mm.

The box comprises a pair of extruded aluminum sides of height 120mm which accept an aluminum top and bottom plate to form a box section. Front and rear plates are fixed into the side extrusions with self-tapping screws to form the enclosure and retain the top and bottom plates. The maximum height of components on a board mounted in the bottom slot is 95mm. The enclosure could be used as a back box for a 3U 19” rack front.

The box features plenty of height relative to its width and is suitable for higher components like transformers, or will have space for PCB mounted daughter boards or additional boards mounted in the extra slots. The outside of the box features a decorative ribbed pattern which is a UK registered design.
