Art-Cases in the basic shapes of "round" and "oval" set new standards in design and functions when they came on the market. In order to meet individual customer requirements, this innovative series of cases has now been extended by two new design variants, "rectangular" as well as "square". The possible applications are highly versatile, for example for electrical and electronic applications indoors. Also in medical technology, computer peripherals, security technology etc.
In its standard version, the Art-Case is made of ABS (UL 94 HB) in the two standard colours off-white (RAL 9002) and jet black (RAL 9005). One top part and one bottom part form the basis for a basic housing - in the oval/round versions the top part is individually available with or without a recessed surface for using membrane keyboards etc. The bottom part is available in a flat or in a desk-top version. The new rectangular Art-Cases can be ordered as desktop versions with a recessed panel. Here, by analogy with the round cases, the dimensions are 110 x 110 mm (S) as well as 160 x 110 mm (E). The heights vary depending on the use of the relevant accessories required. Depending on his requirements, the user has many different possible options to complete his basic housing:
- lid to cover the battery compartment/base opening in the bottom part.
- battery compartment for 2 x 1.5 V AAA batteries and a fitting lid.
- base including brackets for 2 x 1.5 V AA batteries and/or as a spacer for ceiling/wall mounting.
- base 30° or base 55° - fits all lower desk parts in order to achieve ergonomically favourable installation and assembly angles.
The Art-Case portfolio also contains suitable versions for use as a plug case with direct mains connection (Euro plug). The plug part is tested in accordance with DIN VDE 0620 Part 101 and is produced using flame- resistant ABS/PC V-0.
