HAMMOND Electronics has introduced an additional size in its 1593 family, optimised for housing a handheld smart card reader.
The 1593N measures 110 x 75 x 25mm, a size designed to accept the great majority of the smart card readers currently on the market.
Available in black or grey, the unit has a recess in the lid to take a membrane keypad or display module, and is supplied as standard with two separate types of removable end panel, giving a choice between either flush or recessed panels at both ends of the enclosure.
Optional infrared transparent panels are available to enable the reader to be used as a wire-free device and six PCB standoffs are moulded into the base.
The 1593 range of hand-held instrument enclosures now consists of ten different sizes, ranging from 66 x 66 x 28mm to 140 x 66 x 28mm.
Manufactured in ABS with soft rounded styling, most sizes are available with or without a battery compartment and a belt clip accessory is also available.
