First Stackable Plasticase Plastic Enclosure

July 24, 2007
Bud Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of electronic enclosures, announced the availability of its first stackable plastic electronics enclosure. Bud’s new Plasticase Style H enclosures feature a unique interlocking design that allows them to be stacked several high without slipping. The stackable design is ideal for saving space on a desktop or benchtop, and for housing components that need to be mounted close together but cannot be in the same enclosure because they might interfere electrically with one another. Also it may be used as a stand-alone enclosure for small designs — a compact alternative to a conventional 19-in. rack enclosure. The latest addition to Bud’s broad offering of plastic enclosures, the Plasticase Style H fits a number of applications, including metering or monitoring devices, test equipment, controllers, lab equipment and medical equipment. Unlike some plastic enclosures, the front and rear panels slide out for easy modification by the end-user; for example, to add a keypad or read-out display. Bud can also custom modify the enclosure before shipment. The Plasticase Style H enclosure is constructed of durable, self-extinguishing ABS plastic material with a UL94V-0 flammability rating, the highest UL flammability rating available. The exterior features a mar-resistant textured surface with the base securely attached to the cover with four color-matched screws. Internal bosses allow for PCB mounting. Standard color is black. Plasticase Style H comes in 1.68 and 2.36-in heights; length and width are 9.18 in. and 5.25 in. respectively.
