It is often difficult to integrate in a closed case electronic components or PCBs equipped with items such as connectors, displays or switches. This is why Fischer Elektronik are now offering their customers a newly developed line of cases, which were designed especially for installing components. The new U-shaped case sections, which are open on one side, have integral guiding grooves to accommodate electronic components or PCBs, as well as a slide-in cover sheet, the material thickness of which can be varied. Mechanical processing of the cover sheet means that various components, such as LCDs and connectors can be easily fitted and then slid altogether into position in the U-section. The cover sheet is fastened to the front and rear of the case. The standard GD line of cases is available in four different sizes and six lengths (100, 120, 160, 200, 220, 234 mm) and with two surface finishes. The special geometry of the aluminium section enables the installation of membrane keyboards or front foils. Mechanical processing, surface treatment and imprinting to customize the cases are also possible.
