E-Case A – Extruded Aluminum Enclosure
E-Case A is a box section extruded aluminum enclosure. It takes a 55mm wide circuit board. Standard board lengths are 40mm, 80mm or 120mm. It is also available in non-standard lengths. Standard colors are silver anodized or black anodized (which is slightly more expensive). The silver anodized finish has bare aluminum where the ends of the extrusion have been cut. The black anodized finish covers the complete surface of the box. Non-standard anodized colors are also available.
The circuit board can have components 18 or 20mm high (depending on orientation). Fig.1 shows the PCB with maximum component height on it of 18mm. This PCB will fit in the bottom groove of the box orientated as in Fig.2. The PCB slides in grooves 2mm deep down either side of the box. This means that approximately 2.5mm is unavailable for components on each side. The useable part of the PCB is a strip 50mm wide in the middle.
Looking at Fig.2, the top of the box features a shallow (0.5mm) recess between the decorative grooves. This will take a label. The dovetails down the sides will take an optional Linc-lug wall mounting bracket. Two lengths of Linc-lug are available. There is an optional gasket set to aid waterproofing, and an optional bezel which is black. Fig.2 shows the silver anodized aluminum enclosure with Linc-lugs LSS40 (40mm long). Bezels ZAB1 have been fitted. Gasket set GA1 may also be fitted, but it will be hidden by the bezel. Optional end plates PAS1 can be taken with this box, but Fig.2 shows a non-standard endplate printed and punched to customer specification.
Exterior dimensions of the aluminum enclosure are 63.5mm x 30mm with a variable length. The order code for the box gives the length of the circuit board to go inside. For example, EAS80 is the order code for an aluminum enclosure that is approximately 80.5mm long to take an 80mm board.
