BOPLA extends Filotec series
The modular aluminum profile series was expanded by the new width F 3, profile width of 30 mm. Additionally the F 10 profile is now available with cooling fins on one or both sides and with moulded-on wall brackets. Including these supplements the successful enclosure series now counts more than 100 different variants.
This means that the costumer can choose between five widths (30, 40, 50, 70 and 100 mm), each in three heights (F 10 in six heights), as well as between three different types of enclosures with standard lengths from 50 to 1000 mm. The great variety of standard enclosures reduces the construction of new expensive costumer-specific products and minimizes adjustment times.
Filotec consists of two aluminium profile half-shells which are mounted with the help of the cover. The enclosure profiles are equipped with grooves to hold PCBs or mounting panels, which allow an easy and safe mounting of PCBs and mounting panels. Thanks to the modular construction of the enclosures the developers of Bopla are able to realize special variants fast an easily.
Special length or costumer-specific front panels are possible, as well as individual printing and machining. It is also possible to combine different half-shells: Cooling fins or a membrane keypad area on one half-shell and moulded-on wall brackets on the other half-shell (sizes F5 and F10). The covers provide various opportunities for mounting connectors, applying printings, etc.
For higher quantities it is more effective to separate the production of front panels, including a customer-specific machine finishing made by Bopla. That lowers costs and reduces the risks of rejects.
