Hammond Manufacturing's 1599 tablet enclosure is designed for use in a wide variety of hand-held touch-screen applications. The initial size is 9.45 x 7.48 x 1.18 inches (240 x 190 x 30 mm). The enclosures feature recessed areas for touch-screens or other displays, and are available with or without a battery compartment. The battery compartment accepts four AA or two 9 V batteries, and connectors for both types are supplied. The removable plastic end panels are easily machined to provide cutouts to suit LEDs, connectors, and switches as required.
Molded in flame-retardant ABS, the units have a smooth curved shape that fits comfortably into the hand. They are produced in light grey or black. Both top and base are provided with PCB mounting standoffs, and the two shells are assembled together with screws into brass inserts, allowing repeated access to the interior without degrading the enclosure.
