UCS universal housings consist of two identical housing halves and removable side panels. The corner inserts, available in different versions and colors, connect the halves of the housing and act as guides for the side panels. They are easy to process and can be used in two different housing sizes. The volume of the housings can be increased by adapters and corresponding side panels.

Flexible PCB fixing

The UCS housing series features the ability to accommodate various form factor printed circuit boards. Adhesive pads allow you to use almost any PCB, of course including your own developments, in the UCS housing. This flexibility also allows multiple PCBs to be accommodated. Depths of 47 mm and 67 mm are available.

Five different housing sizes

With a comprehensive range of accessories, the housings can be used in a variety of ways: outside the control cabinet, on the desk, standing upright, lying down, on the wall, or on a VESA adapter. Use in the control cabinet is possible via DIN rail adapters with side lengths of 125 mm or 145 mm.
The IP40 polycarbonate PC housings (UL V0) are rated for temperatures from -40 to +100°C. They are available with stands for all 47 mm versions and in the colors light gray (RAL 7035) or black (RAL 9005).

In practice, more and more devices with interactive operation are being used. The UCS electronics housing is perfectly suited for this: As a prepared set to accommodate Raspberry Pi components, as a version with an integrated 2.4-inch touch display, or tailored fully to your wishes. If you need the display or membrane keypad in a different position – this housing series can accommodate the change.

UCS series housings with connection technology

Intelligent devices based on single-board computers or embedded boards require housings that adapt to their requirements. Passive connection components, such as device connectors, field connectors, and BTB connectors, determine the functionality of a device. UCS housings are flexibly adaptable to different applications because removable side panels are ideal for integrating interfaces.

Technical principles of electronics housings Solutions for DIN rail applications

Electronics housings are an elementary part of a device. They determine its appearance and protect the electronics from external influences. In addition, they enable assembly in superordinate units. Device manufacturers must therefore pay attention to many details, and not only in the design, but also in the choice of housing when it comes to materials and quality testing. This brochure provides you with all the details.
