Hammond launches new wall mount/desktop plastic enclosure family
By Kavita Sabharwal-Chomiuk
Hammond Manufacturing has announced the launch of its new 1557 family. Initially available in four plan sizes, each in two heights, the product family is available in polycarbonate, sealed to IP68, and ABS, designed to meet IP66. The products come in 80 x 80 x 45 and 60 mm and 120 x 120, 160 x 160 and 200.x 200 in heights of 45 and 70 mm. All versions are available in black and RAL 7035 grey.
Rounded corners and top face provide a modern, smooth style, and environmental sealing allows the enclosures to protect housed equipment against dust and water entry in dirty and damp environments. The 1557 can be used as a free-standing enclosure when fitted with the accompanying feet, or the product can be wall-mounted with either four visible fixings, or two hidden fixings.
PCB standoffs are provided in both the lid and base. The enclosure is assembled with corrosion-resistant M4 stainless-steel machine screws, which are threaded into integral stainless-steel bushings for repetitive assembly and disassembly. The IP68 polycarbonate versions are UV stabilized for outdoor use with a UL94-5VA rating, the IP66 ABS versions have a flammability rating of UL94-HB for indoor use.
