Hammond Electronics produces miniature enclosures sealed to IP68

Hammond Electronics has introduced the 1551W Series, IP68 sealed versions of its popular 1551 miniature enclosure family. Initially available in five sizes, with a plain or flanged lid, the UL94-V0 polycarbonate enclosures are suitable for use indoors or outside. 

They are available in black and grey with a soft texture finish, all are fitted with PCB stand-offs in the base. The preformed silicone sealing gasket protects against the ingress of dust or water, protecting the housed electronics. 

The initial five sizes range from 60 x 35 x 22mm to 100 x 59 x 25mm. The flanged lid versions make mounting to any surface a simple and easy process and provide a degree of tamper resistance by preventing access to the lid and base securing screws, claimed Hammond.

The 1551W is the latest extension to the extensive 1551 family. The general-purpose IP54 ABS 1551 family is available in 18 sizes, also with plain or flanged lids. Plain lid versions are available in black, grey or translucent blue, flanged list version in black or grey. Three sizes are available fitted with key rings.

The rectangular and round vented 1551V versions are designed to house sensors and small sub-systems installed in the manufacturing environment. A key features is the snap-fit closure that 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 enclosures feature ventilation slots on all four vertical faces of the cover and wall mounting slots and a 15mm cable knock out in the base. All rectangular and round versions are also available in an unvented style in all sizes.

Hammond manufacturers small plastic, die-cast and metal enclosures for use in the electronics, industrial and electrical industries. The corporate head office is in Ontario, Canada. The company also has a New York office and a European office based in Hampshire, England.
