The housing used has a decisive impact on how efficiently a device is mounted. ME MAX series electronics housings allow the easy latching together of the individual parts. In addition, the half-shell housings can be easily extended with center parts, resulting in a modularly extendable overall width.
ME MAX modular electronics housings in a flexible modular design
Modular housings from the ME MAX series offer lots of space in a flexible modular design. Available in overall widths from 12.5 mm to 90 mm, the DIN rail housings offer individual and design-oriented solutions for your electronics. Thanks to the variable connection technology with different pitches and numbers of positions, the electronics housings are ideal for numerous applications in device and systems manufacturing.More information

The design-oriented ME MAX housing at a glance Modular, functional, and design-oriented ME MAX electronics housings for use in modern industrial electronics: Use variable connection technology, DIN rail connectors, and modularity to ensure the right device design for every application.
ME and ME MAX: Housing systems with a flexible modular design
ME and ME MAX electronic housings reduce the wiring effort with the integrated DIN rail bus and modular design. Comprehensive accessories and diverse adaptation options, including the housing width, extend the range of individual housing solutions.
The housing for flexible, modular device designs
Save space with flexible connection technology, available in different pitches and numbers of positions. You can thus transmit control signals of a few milliamps or supply voltages of several hundred volts. PCB terminal blocks and plug-in connection technology enable an optimum device connection. The connection technology is available in pitches from 3.5 to 7.5 mm and for voltages up to 600 V (UL). Both Push-in and screw connection technology are available for all terminal block types.
For a device system to be innovative and fit for the future, it must be possible to connect modules on the DIN rail easily and without any errors. Make the best use of your PCB space – with the ME-TBUS adapter that enables serial and parallel data transmission with five positions. PCO connectors can distribute high currents up to 42 A at 60 V DC between modules.
The HS LC light guides for electronics housings are available in a variety of designs and are perfectly matched to the housings. The light guides are also resistant to ESD. The press pins enable easy mounting on the PCB. Furthermore, upon request, we will process your electronics housings as required.
Easy assembly of the ME series electronics housing
See for yourself how quick and easy the device assembly of ME MAX series electronic enclosures is with the simple latching together of its individual parts. Moreover, the half-shell housings can be extended modularly by the desired overall width by means of center parts.

Can be combined with the ME housing system
Using DIN rail connectors, you as a device manufacturer can combine the two housing series ME and ME MAX with each other for your application and thus benefit from the strengths of both systems.
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.
