The popular 1455 family of extruded aluminium enclosures from Hammond Electronics has been extended with the addition of the A and B sizes, slimline units designed to accept one or two circuit boards respectively, mounted horizontally directly into slots in the walls of the unit.
The rounded profile fits comfortably into the hand or pocket and the units are fitted with plastic bezels at each end that incorporate a flat panel area for switches, indicator lights and other front panel furniture.
The units are available in lengths of 100mm, the A size is 70mm wide and the B size is 71.7mm in width. The 12mm high A size, which accepts a single PCB, has flat top and bottom surfaces while the 19mm high B size, provided with two PCB mounting slots, has a recessed area, suitable for a membrane keyboard, on one face.
The units are available with a clear or black anodised finish; the end bezels are moulded in black polycarbonate as standard with translucent blue and IR transparent translucent red available as optional alternatives.
