DIN rail enclosures can be mixed and matched
For applications such as industrial control equipment, automation, equipment management and monitoring, HVAC controllers and distributed IoT equipment, Hammond Electronics has announced its 1597DIN family of UL94-V0 flame-retardant plastic enclosures for mounting to standard IEC/EN 60715 35mm DIN rails.
There are four sizes initially available –two, four, six and nine standard 17.5mm module widths. All sizes have two mounting positions for the terminal blocks which is designed to maximise I/O availability while giving headroom for future expansion if required.
There are two horizontal PCB mounting slots in the body and two stand-offs in the base for component or PCB mounting. Plain, vented, knock out and slotted terminal covers are supplied separately and can be mixed and matched in the bodies as required. A polycarbonate control box is primarily designed to accept PCBs. The slim, 22.5 x 118 x 90mm box has ventilated sides and a shaped front panel.
All units feature simple, no-tool snap together assembly and can be as easily disassembled to access the internal components or PCB when required. The body of the enclosures are ventilated on the top and bottom faces and feature a recess in the front panel for mounting identification labels or other graphics.
The bases are moulded in dark grey PPO (polyphenylene oxide) with a polystyrene DIN rail mounting clip and the main enclosure body is RAL 7035 light grey polycarbonate.
Hammond manufactures small plastic, die-cast and metal enclosures for use in the electronics, industrial and electrical industries.
