Eurotec Caseframes

The Eurotec Caseframe is designed for applications that require the mounting / housing of Eurocard-style electronics (cards or modules) in either a 19” rackmount, desktop or portable formfactor. A step up from a standard subrack, its design requires no external housing, and offers optional EMC protection along with the integration of cooling fans and power supplies in a self contained, attractive unit. Top and bottom covers are easily removed for system building and servicing requirements.

Caseframe Styles
The Eurotec Caseframe is available in either a desktop, 19” rackmount or portable style to suit a number of different application environments.

Desktop – with front trims giving a neat appearance and with fold down feet fitted at the front and complimentary non-slip feet at the rear. Included is a kit of 4 x 10mm round adhesive rubber bumper stops that can be used as an alternative to the feet. These should be positioned in the depressions in the bottom cover.

Rack Mount – with mounting angles at the front to provide fixings within a 19” rack system to IEC 297.

Portable – with a stylish, locking, swing handle for carrying and providing a front support (limited to 30Kg load in any position).

Eurotec Caseframes are available in 2 card connection styles.
