Hammond Manufacturing's 1457 Series extends the capabilities of the 1455 extruded aluminum family of small enclosures with the addition of IP65 sealed die-cast aluminum end panels, enabling the enclosure to be used in dusty and wet environments. The end panels are available with or without integral flanges which enable the enclosure to be mounted to an external surface.
The 1457 Series is 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. They are available with clear anodized or textured black powder coat 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.
Six 1457 sizes are currently available, ranging from 3.15" x 2.32" x 1.21" (80 mm x 59 mm x 31 mm) to 6.30" x 4.09" x 2.15" (160 mm x 104 mm x 55 mm). The largest size will accept a standard 160 x 100 mm Eurocard.
