Lockable stainless steel enclosures for extreme environments
Supplier and manufacturer of electrical and electronic components and enclosures, Hylec-APL, has announced its new DEDSS Stainless Steel Series of lockable, solid door enclosures specially designed to provide high-quality, secure, cost-effective protection for specialist and demanding electronic and electrical installations. The DEDSS Enclosure Series is IP66 rated and protects contents against water and dust, as well as being able to withstand impact to IK10 specifications and extremes of temperature ranging between -20 and 55°C.
Suitable applications for DEDSS enclosures include corrosive environments, such as the chemical and petrochemical industries, and environments where strict hygiene is required, for example, the agro food sector.
The rugged DEDSS enclosures range is manufactured from grade 304 stainless steel and supplied as a complete kit. This includes a metal lock and key, a 2mm galvanised steel back plate, and external mounting feet and spacers. In addition, DEDSS enclosures come complete with an earth strap pre-wired and fitted between the door and the housing to save valuable installation time.
This range encompasses six different sizes, ranging from 300x200x150mm to 500x500x200mm deep, so offering a wide choice capable of accommodating most installations. Many accessories that fit the DEDSS range are available from Hylec: cable glands, Kwik-Fix cable glands, venting elements, contactors/thermal overloads, filter fans and other fans.
Steve Robbins, Sales Director, commented: “The DEDSS range provides the perfect solution for protecting delicate components in environments that demand very high standards of security and cleanliness, for example where hygiene must be maintained, such as hospitals, dental and veterinary practices, in addition to a whole host of other industries, such as food manufacturing.”
