  • Patent number: 6382748
    Abstract: A cabinet system, especially for a wall cabinet, with a frame, which has a rear wall, built-in brackets and vertical profiles, and with lining parts, which, following mounting and cabling of electrical appliances and components, are fastened to the frame. The cabinet, which can be installed by one person, is easy to fit, and customer-friendly and permits good accessibility and cabling, also ensures high security against any unauthorized openings. The built-in brackets are directly inserted or locked on the rear wall and then secured thereto.

  • Patent number: 5879167
    Abstract: A contact element is used for anticipatory earthing of a plug-in module during insertion in guides of a casing or a modular chassis up to plugging in. In order to ensure a reliable and effective protective earthing and a very early conducting away of electrostatic charges during the plugging-in process, a contact element is provided with a clamping area and a holding area. The clamping area is constructed for contact engagement on a circuit board and the holding area is constructed for retaining the contact element on a cross extrusion of the casing or the modular chassis.

  • Patent number: 5829615
    Abstract: The invention relates to an equipment case with a metallic, self-supporting casing and an inner frame forming a reception space for equipment and components and which is fixed to the casing jacket by means of vibration-damping elements spaced from the casing. According to the invention a casing jacket comprising a single part is provided and its base and cover surfaces and vertical lateral parts are formed in a bending process. Angle bevels and a circumferential, front and back hollow section are formed on the casing jacket. The angle bevels are used for the vibration-damping reception of the inner frame, whilst the hollow section of the casing jacket, in the same way as an extruded section of the front and/or back cover contribute to the integral construction of the equipment case and to a particularly good accessory adaptation.

  • Patent number: 5735411
    Abstract: The invention relates to a constructional system for frames, racks and casings and in particular for sub-racks and equipment cabinets for accommodation of electrical and electronic assemblies, units and printed circuit boards.At least one joint system having engagements is provided for thread-forming screws as fastening elements for particularly cost-effective manufacture of such type of constructional systems, and for simple assembly as well as for ensuring effective EMC screening in accordance with the invention between horizontally and vertically arranged components, in particular between side parts and a top part and a base part having multi-folded horizontal struts and/or vertical struts.

  • Patent number: 5722269
    Abstract: A locking device is used for doors of cabinets or cupboards and, more parularly, for doors of modular cupboard systems. In order to create an operationally reliable, inexpensive locking device which is suitable for narrow counterstops and which permits an installation independently of the fixing side, as well as an inexpensive conversion when the fixing side is changed, the locking device is given a bipartite construction with a handle positioned in the vicinity of a door plate and a bolt mechanism operable by a tumbler. The device has a first door plate area receiving the handle and a second door plate area. A locking movement, initiated by the handle, is subject to a deflection, preferably of approximately, in the direction of a counterstop and a closed or open position of at least one locking element in a cabinet or cupboard-side receptacle is obtained.

  • Patent number: 5695263
    Abstract: The invention relates to a cabinet for receiving electrical and electronic equipment and subassemblies with facing parts, which comprises a frame of vertical, horizontal and transverse sectional bars interconnected by means of corner connectors.In order to obtain a particularly stable and secure cabinet, which also allows an extremely efficient manufacture and assembly, each corner connector is provided with through holes and guide elements constructed in the space coordinate direction for frontal reception and for the easy, reliable fixing of a sectional bar. In addition, each corner connector has a reception area for fixing a base. The base corner parts are preferably made from a one-piece, metallic flat material.

  • Patent number: 5561886
    Abstract: The invention concerns a hinge, in particular a hinge for switch-cabinet and instrument-cabinet doors, the hinge comprising a part fitted to the door and a part fitted to the cabinet which engage with each other for rotational motion by means of at least one hinge pin. In order to ensure that the hinge parts can be separated and reassembled rapidly and simply, the invention calls for at least one hinge part (10, 40) to be designed in two elements, via a first and a second element (11, 12; 41, 42) and that the first and second element (11, 12; 41, 42) can be displaced relative to each other in the longitudinal direction to enable the other part (20; 50) to be inserted and withdrawn again.

  • Patent number: 5503511
    Abstract: An arrangement is provided for the spring elastic position fixing of fasteners, e.g. spring nuts, in a recess, e.g. a T-slot. In smooth recesses, a reliable position fixing of a fastener, such as a rail, can be obtained if the fastener is placed in the recess. For spring elastic reception of the fastener, locking areas are formed in the fastener.
