Hammond Manufacturing's 1550 series of die-cast aluminum enclosures provide a robust mechanical protection and good EMC attenuation levels, making them suitable for a use in a wide variety of applications. These enclosures are available with a natural or black epoxy powder coated finish and are supplied in two versions: standard and watertight. The watertight units are supplied with a separate compressible self-adhesive gasket that, when fitted between the lid and the base, provides dust and water sealing to IP66, enabling them to be used in both benign and hostile environments.
The thin-wall aluminum enclosures have high impact strength, but are also easily drilled and punched to accept cables, switches, and indicators as required. The initially available sizes range from 2.36" x 2.17" x 1.02" (60 mm x 55 mm x 26 mm) to 10.83" x 6.89" x 2.56" (275 mm x 175 mm x 65 mm). All units can be supplied factory modified with machining and silk screening to the user's specification. AutoCAD and PDF dimensioned drawings can be downloaded from www.hammondmfg.com.
