Hammond Electronics introduces a new IP65 sealed version to its stylish and ergonomically designed 1553 handheld enclosure series.

Designed to house any electronics or parts where dust and water ingress is an issue, the new IP65 1553W range features an ergonometric curved shape that fits comfortably into the hand, and is available in a choice of three sizes: 117x79x25mm, 117x79x32mm and 147x90x25mm.

Key features of the new IP65 handheld enclosures include UL94-V0 flame retardant ABS moulding in RAL 7035 light grey or RAL 9011 black, both over-moulded with RAL 7012 grey soft side grips; recessed top cover allowing a membrane keypad to be flush mounted; PCB standoffs provided in the top and base; and IP65 environmental sealing achieved by a rubber gasket in a slot in the base.

The top and base are assembled with four screws that locate into brass inserts in the top moulding, facilitating repeated access to the housed electronics. The fixing positions are outside the gasket, ensuring the integrity of the seal. An integral end panel forms part of the top cover for easy machining for cable entry, switches and indicators.

To reduce time to market and modification costs, all 1553W enclosures are available factory modified with machining and silk screening to the user’s specification.

These enclosures are available in Australia through DLPC Pty Ltd, a Hammond distributor based in Queensland.
