The integration of PCBs or electronic components in a closed case is especially problematic if it is equipped with connectors on various sides, displays or switches and to be implemented through openings in the case wall or cover panel from the outside. For such applications company Fischer Elektronik offers their customers an extended case series GD which is characterized by a particularly installation-friendly design and various functional properties.
The new, one-side open, U-shaped case profiles have integrated guide slots for the insertion of electronic components or PCBs as well as insertable cover panels, which can vary in the material thickness and therefore in stability. By means of a mechanical treatment of the cover panels various devices such as LCDs, connectors, etc. can be mounted easily and inserted in the U-profile afterwards together. The fixing of the cover panel is made by front and back cover panels with inboard shadow gap which does not only balance production tolerances, but also avoids a deflection of the cover panel. Due to the special geometry of the aluminum profile the insertion of membrane key pads or front foils as well as nearly all printings on the external surfaces is possible. The case series GD is available in six different seizes (100, 120, 160, 200, 220, 234 mm) as well as the surface finishes "black" or "natural colour anodized" as a standard. For samples and customised prototypes the case profiles are also available in a length of 1000 mm.
In addition to the standard designs the cases can be machined upon customer's request, surface-treated and printed.
