THE new 1455 Series of extruded aluminium instrument cases from Adelaide-based Hammond Electronics is primarily designed to house PCBs, mounted horizontally into internal slots in the body of the case.
They can also be used to house any small electronic, electrical or pneumatic components.
The units are available with silver or black anodised finish for good resistance to wear and tear. Two types of end panels are available: either a flat aluminium panel, retained to the case body by a plastic bezel or a one-piece moulded plastic panel.
There are seven sizes in the family ranging from 80 x 54 x 23mm to 220 x 103 x 53mm; the two largest sizes have a removable cover on the case body to allow access to the PCB when it is in situ; these units will accept a standard 100 x 160mm or 100 x 220mm Eurocard respectively.
All sizes of the 1455 are supplied complete with fixings and self-adhesive rubber feet; flange brackets that enable the unit to be mounted directly to a shelf or wall are also available as an optional accessory.
