Hammond’s new 1457 range extends the capabilities of the 1455 extruded aluminium family of small enclosures with the addition of IP65 sealed die-cast aluminium end panel, enabling the enclosure to be used in dusty and wet environments.
The end panels are available with or without integral flanges that enable the enclosure to be mounted to an external surface.
The 1457 range, available from Hi-Q Electronics , are 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 1457 range are available with clear anodised or textured black painted finish for good resistance to wear and tear. The IP65 sealing is achieved through the use of o-ring screw seals and closed cell polyethylene sealing gaskets.
An initial six 1457 sizes are available, ranging from 80 x 59 x 31mm to 160 x 104 x 55; the largest size will accept a standard 160 x 100mm Eurocard.
