Desktop enclosures adopt retro styling

Two new ranges of desktop enclosures from Hammond Electronics are now available from JPR Electronics. They have retro styling to appeal to manufacturers of hi-fi equipment, audio, broadcast, set-top boxes and other consumer products as well as industrial instrumentation, offering an alternative to conventional cases in applications where appearance can be as important as function.

The HWCAS consists of a walnut frame fitted with aluminium top and optional base panels. It is available with either a black powder coat or natural finish.

The 1444CWW and the 1441CWW are fabricated from aluminium or steel respectively and fitted with walnut end panels to the shorter sides. The aluminium version has a natural finish, whereas the steel 1441CWW has a black powder coat finish.

The HWCAS is available in two sizes, 330 x 254 x 76mm or 432 x 254 x 76mm. The chassis corners are dovetailed and reinforced with corner posts fitted with brass inserts to take the panel fixings. The 2.0mm thick top panel will support heavy components such as transformers without bowing, says JPR Electronics. The 1444 and 1441CWW units are available in six sizes ranging from 178 x 127 x 51mm to 432 x 254 x 102mm. The rigid chassis is spot welded for strength and rigidity and is complete with an integral top panel, so there are no visible fixings.

Paul Raynor, director of JPR Electronics, comments: “Many high-end and prestige products require aesthetically pleasing and interesting packaging . . . Such products rarely have the volume production to justify a bespoke enclosure. The new Hammond retro styled enclosures offer an ideal solution for these low volume high quality designs.”

Established in 1979, JPR Electronics supplies electronic components and accessories to manufacturers, sub-contractors, designers, distributors, Ministry of Defence, government departments and educational establishments.

The independent distributor has a global network of franchises, enabling it to offer an extensive range of products from recognised manufacturers.
