What enclosure to use for your electronic device and how to sort them when there are several ones on one place? That´s the question reaching almost to beginnings of electronics. No wonder, that since those times a lot of solutions were developed, which were so good, that they´re actual even nowadays. One of such examples is also a known modular 19“ system (482,6 mm wide), where various electronic devices are placed into a carrying rack.
This system is highly modular and at a fixed width it enables to use various height of devices. That´s why in a 19“ system can often be found thin (slim) devices only few centimeters high, but also giants with a height of several tens of centimeters.
Company Fischer Elektronik as a well known producer of device enclosures, heatsinks and connectors, produces a wide range of enclosures suitable for the 19“ system, where you certainly can find a type suitable for your application.
