Compact, robust hand held case models from BCL Enclosures

The BC range of hand held boxes from BCL Enclosures, the specialist UK manufacturer of standard and custom plastic enclosures, includes a number of different models suitable for a wide range of applications - these protective cases can be used for measuring instruments, wireless communication devices, control and data recording devices and many more.

The hand held case with battery compartment and belt/pocket clip option, Model BC2, has an integral PP3 battery compartment with a removable cover and clip-in terminals supplied as standard. Four internal location pegs and sockets hold a PCB securely in place without the need for further fixings. The case is held together by two self-tapping screws concealed by the battery cover for a neat finish. The pocket/belt clip is supplied with each case and can easily be fixed to it with two supplied screws. Manufactured from ABS, standard colours are matt black, white or light grey, with other RAL colours available on request. The front of the case has feature panels which provide an excellent surface for customization such as company logos. The case measures 103mm high by 62mm wide by 23mm deep. Nominal wall thickness is 1.5mm.

A hand held case model, BC3, has a battery compartment and separate front cover model with an integral PP3 battery compartment accessible by a separate removable cover. Again, the two main halves of the case are held together by two supplied self-tapping screws concealed by the battery cover. The integral bezel and front cover can be removed for ease of manufacture. In moulded ABS, colours are high-impact matt black, white or grey with a polished front panel.  BC3 measures 118mm high by 66mm wide by 33mm deep. Nominal wall thickness is 2.0mm.

Model BC5 hand held case offers a recessed front panel, battery compartment and a belt/pocket clip option. The recessed front panel is suitable for a membrane-type keypad.  The integral battery compartment is accessed by a separate removable cover and the two halves of the case held together with two concealed screws (supplied). There is also a handy optional pocket/belt clip supplied with the case that can be fixed in place with two screws. (The pocket clip BPC5 is also available separately). BC5 measures 92mm high by 63mm wide by 24mm deep. Nominal wall thickness is 2.5mm. BC5 is available in matt finish black only as standard, although RAL colours are available on request for both BC5 and BC3.

The final model in BCL’s range of hand held cases is an instrument or calculator case with a battery compartment, moulded from matt black or white ABS. The BC4 case has an integral battery compartment, with a sliding cover that will take two PP3 type batteries. Internal PCB pillars are provided in both halves of the case, which are securely held together with four supplied self-tapping screws. At the window end of the case there is a removable panel for leads or a window for infra-red remote control applications. Measurements are 154mm high by 81mm wide by 37.5mm deep at the upper end, tapering to 33mm deep at the lower edge. Nominal wall thickness is 2.0mm. The display window is 49mm x 20mm.

BCL Enclosures’ products are manufactured in the UK, which overcomes the supply issues often found with non-UK manufactured items. Products are available from stock or on very short lead times. In addition to the above hand held range, BCL Enclosures offers a very comprehensive range of plastic enclosures and power supply units. Advice on enclosure specification and a full gamut of custom and customization services are also available.
