UM-BASIC extruded profile housings

UM-BASIC extruded profile housings for custom PCB sizes

Extruded profile housings from the UM-BASIC series combine short installation times with a high degree of freedom when choosing the connection technology. They allow individual PCB positioning and custom PCB sizes. The low-profile design supports the assembly of flat electronics modules and their mounting on standard DIN rails or directly on the wall. This allows for a high degree of freedom when designing devices – such as in industrial electronics.

Unlimited freedom in device design

Extruded profile housings are characterized by the fast, tool-free assembly using the snap-mount principle and the precisely configurable housing length for the position and size of the PCB. Develop devices in accordance with your requirements with a free choice of PCB connection technology. The open design principle is ideal for PCBs with large components. Optional covering hoods that can be freely positioned protect your electronics.

Profile of the UM-BASIC housing system

The extruded profiles are cut to customer-specific lengths. They are available in lengths from 30 to 1,000 mm. Precise housing lengths down to the millimeter save you valuable space.

Extruded profile with side panel to be mounted

Simply snap the sides into place with the snap-mount principle, thereby saving installation time. Screws are not necessary.

UM-BASIC housing: Full flexibility, even with the top PCB position

Assemble your PCB right to the edge. This means you will make the best use of your space.

Freely positionable covering hoods of different geometries for UM-BASIC series housings

Tailor the design of your housing to the device with freely positionable covering hoods. The hoods are available in different geometries. Moreover, they also feature an optional integration option with guides for integrating printed circuit boards.

Different module connections via bus cross-contacts with the UM-BASIC series

Simplify device communication with optional bus cross-connectors. Connect several modules together quickly and securely. The load capacity is a current strength of up to 8 A and 160 V.

Secure connection between the PCB and DIN rail

Connect the PCB in all three different PCB levels to the DIN rail via PE contact.

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.
