Enhanced enclosures range houses sensors
New designs in the electronic enclosure portfolio will be showcased by Hammond Manufacturing at Southern Manufacturing 2022 in Farnborough (February 8-10) together with its in-house modification capability.
New designs include the 1551V and 1551SNAP extensions to the 1551 miniature plastic enclosure family.
They are designed to house sensors and small sub-systems installed in the manufacturing environment as part of IoT systems. They are available in rectangular, square and round versions with either ventilated or plain covers.
A key feature is the snap-fit closure, which allows repeated opening and closing without tools.
It also maximises the internal space for PCBs by eliminating screw fixings to secure the cover to the base.
The 1557 is available in polycarbonate (sealed to IP68) and in ABS (designed to meet IP66). It has rounded corners and top face and can be located in dirty and damp environments.
The 1552 family of handheld enclosures features an ergonomic design that fits comfortably into the hand, enabling it to be used for long periods in applications such as a machine controller or an electric hoist control.
The end panels are removable for easy modification, and for use with flying cables.
An alternative end panel with an integral rubberised cord protector and a strain relief bracket is available.
Visitors will also see examples of application-specific plastic, extruded and die-cast enclosures that demonstrate in-house modification capabilities.
