The new styles include two sizes of trapezoid and octagonal shaped enclosures. These complement the extensive range of Hammond enclosures in standard rectangular format that Farnell already offers
The 1590 series features a lap joint construction to provide protection against dust and moisture ingress and water splashes. The enclosures are rated to IP54; this can be increased to IP66 by utilising a gasket kit. The use of a lap joint also supports improved EMI/RFI shielding performance.
Farnell is the first Europe-wide distributor to offer the new styles from Hammond’s 1590 series giving designers the widest choice for their new equipment designs.
