Switches Plus Components  presents a new range of die-cast enclosures from Hammond Electronics designed for strength and reliability.

Hammond Electronics has introduced the 1590TRP and STP models to its popular 1590 family of die-cast enclosures. The die-cast enclosures are designed to provide a strong and robust environmentally sealed housing with good EMC screening in a non-rectangular shape.

The new octagonal and trapezoidal die-cast enclosures find application in audio equipment, guitar stomp boxes, industrial remote controllers, desktop switch arrays and handheld test equipment controllers among others.

The octagonal 1590TRP is 133mm across the flats and 39mm high to house circular PCBs up to 126mm in diameter.

The two 1590STP trapezoidal units are also 39mm high and available in portrait or landscape formats. The smaller portrait format unit is 112mm long, narrowing from 79mm to 62mm while the larger landscape format unit is 95mm deep and narrows from 151mm to 122mm.
