Easy Electronics Access and Adjustable Viewing Positions in New Enclosure from Elma

Technical Specifications

  • Easy access via top panel for simplified electronics integration
  • Adjustable viewing angles for optimal ergonomics
  • Visually appealing design for modern looking electronics systems
  • Four standard sizes with customization available for specific needs

FREMONT, Calif., March 2017 – Elma Electronic Inc. has expanded its award-winning iD-Box enclosure line with the iD-Case 18.  The new enclosure uses a combination of magnetic connections and hidden screws that provides simple access to internal electronics through an easily removable top panel.  This reduces system integration complexity as well as hassles with upgrades and maintenance.

Walter Podbelski, Director of E&C Sales for Elma Electronic, noted, “Electronics systems have moved from the back room to the front of the house, or in some cases, into homes.  By incorporating sleek, modern design elements into our enclosure design, users can have the complex functionality they need in a visually-appealing enclosure right in front of them.  We’ve also incorporated function and ease of access into this new enclosure to make access and upgrades easier.”

The modern design of the iD-Case 18 is not only stylish, but functional as well.  The surrounding aluminum frame functions as front panel as well as integrates a carrying handle on the back. 

The front panel can be positioned vertically or set at a 20° angle to the supporting surface, so the user can comfortably view the enclosure in either a seated or standing position.  Foldable feet provide additional positioning flexibility.

Available in four standard configurations, the iD-Case 18 is sized for most common enclosure designs. For an individualized look, the enclosure can be customized to adapt specifically to the user’s requirements or corporate design. Modifications that can be integrated by Elma include the controls, touchscreen displays and internal electronics.

Pricing for the iD-Case 18 starts at $300.00. Delivery is 4 weeks ARO.
