Desktop cases can now be customised

Pentair - Schroff UK Ltdvisit website


Schroff is now offering its versatile ratiopacPRO range of desktop cases with a new modification service that enables them to be tailored to meet customers' specific requirements.

While the ratiopacPRO range includes a variety of standard products, sometimes drilling or cut-outs are needed in particular places, or screen printing or a special colour finish may be required to satisfy the exact demands of the application.

As part of Schroff's recently introduced ServicePLUS strategy, any of these modifications can now be arranged quickly and easily via the company's website, where an online calculator enables the customer to work out the additional cost, with various options displayed according to batch size and delivery times.

The ratiopacPRO desktop case provides a sturdy metal enclosure for a diverse range of applications. Its symmetrical design means that plug-in units can be inserted from the front or the rear and EMC shielding can either be specified when ordering or retrofitted at a later date.

Available in over 200 different configurations and sizes, the ratiopacPRO range includes versions pre-configured with threaded inserts and perforated strips, ready for backplane assembly.

For applications where the case will house particularly high-density electronics, the ratiopacPRO-air variant provides ventilation slots on both sides of the card cage, thereby optimising airflow over plug-in units to aid thermal management.
