For Field Electronic Instrumentation Equipment
Turn Your Carrying Case into an Electronic Instrument
Mount switches, dials, controls, displays and electronic components to an instrument panel and create an instrument unique to your business. Our instrument panel rings are normally installed at our factory but can also be purchased as kits to fit each case.
What is a panel ring / panel frame?
Panel mounting rings allow the simple attachment of an interface panel flush with the rim of the case. The depth of the lid allows switches, buttons, connectors and ports to stand up from the panel face. Panel mounting rings are available in our cases (both the lid and base).
The ring is solvent welded in place 0.5 inch below the rim of the case. Brass threaded inserts (8-32) are embedded in the ring for rigid attachment of an instrument panel. A foamed neoprene O-ring seals the panel to the frame. Moisture resistant waterproof panel ring permits permanent installation of instrument panels in bottom of case.
See the technical drawing of the instrument panel installation on our 716 UltraCase.
Panel rings are ideal for medical devices, testing equipment and can even accommodate LCD displays.
