Even for rugged electrical and electronic devices, the design function is of growing importance. Consumers often decide within the first few milliseconds whether or not to take a closer look at a product's other features. A good design pays due attention to content and form to project strengths, ideas, values and expectations. And good design is timeless. This is equally true for Elma Electronic AG's Guardbox 33.
Fabricated from aluminium sections, the miniature enclosure is firmly rooted in this trend, but now has a range of additional features to make it more versatile than ever in its potential applications. Not only is it suitable for measurement, control and test instrumentation, but also anywhere that demands a rugged construction alongside qualities of portability, form and colour. Individual single or double Eurocards can easily be incorporated, as can non-standard components. The enclosures are available from Associated Controls .
The entire range consisting of six standard versions has recently been revised. The enclosures are now available in an EMC version with 40 dB shielding performance at 1 MHz, and in a black powder coated finish as well as the formerly uniform grey.
The clip-on front and rear frames, carrying handles and mounting feet are naturally also available in the new black finish. The various colours are easy to combine, leaving the user free to arrive at a unique design.
In the standard version with ventilation slots, Guardbox 33 complies with IP 30 while in other unvented versions it can meet IP 65 (protected from dust and low-pressure water jets). The new combined and EMC optimised version meets both IP 54 and 40 dB at 1 MHz.
ELMA, your solution partner, will also make a reliable and efficient job of developing and producing custom products based on the Guardbox 33. Regardless of size, colour, surface finish or mechanical detailing, you can concentrate on the electronic design in the knowledge that your future products will far exceed your customers' demands in terms of their ruggedness and timeless design.
