Hammond prepares for industry 4.0 with IP68 1554 and 1555 enclosures
Two sealed enclosure families from Hammond Electronics have been extended with six new size options. The company has added 36 new configurations to its popular industry 4.0 1554 and 1555 sealed enclosure families.
The enclosures are available in ABS or polycarbonate with styled, opaque, clear or smoked lids. The six new sizes are 105 x 105 x 60mm and 90 x 140 x 60mm, 140 x 140 x 60mm, 90 x 180 x 60mm, 180 x 180 x 60mm and 180 x 180 x 90mm. This give a total of 150 sizes and lid options available as standard.
The company has also announced that the polycarbonate versions now have cUL and UL 508A listing and are tested to IP68 (NEMA Type 4, 4X, 6, 6P, 12 and 13). Sealing is via a tongue and groove construction and a one-piece UL listed silicone gasket.
All versions have a RAL7035 grey base. The polycarbonate range is available with a plain or styled opaque lid, a clear lid or a smoked lid. The ABS units have a plain or styled opaque grey lid which is secured with self-captivated M4 stainless steel machine screws, located outside the sealed area and threaded into integral stainless-steel bushings to preserve the sealing integrity after repetitive assembly and disassembly.
Internal features vary with size. M3 threaded brass inserts and/or standoffs for PCB or inner panel mounting and vertical PCB guides are provided in all but the smallest B size. DIN rail mounting tabs are moulded into most sizes.
The polycarbonate versions are UV stabilised for outdoor use. The grey material has a UL94-5VA flammability rating, the clear and smoked lids are rated UL94V-0. The ABS versions are rated UL94-HB.
Hammond specialises in manufacturing small plastic, die-cast and metal enclosures for use in the electronics, electrical and allied industries.
