Hammond says its new 1555F family of IP67-sealed enclosures is designed for wall mounting PCB- or DIN rail-based equipment (such as security components, control equipment and radio repeaters) in harsh industrial environments or outdoor applications. The units are available in RAL 7035 Light Grey and moulded in either general purpose ABS or flameproof polycarbonate. Standoffs are moulded into both the lid and the base and, apart from in the two smallest sizes, DIN rail mounting tabs are also provided. The bottom of the base features a moulded recess for a membrane keyboard or label. The initial six sizes range from 120 x 66 x 42 mm to 159 x 91 x 62 mm; all lids are fitted with captive M4 stainless steel screws that engage with stainless steel inserts in the base, allowing repetitive assembly and disassembly. Environmental sealing is achieved through a tongue-and-groove design and a moulded silicon rubber gasket; all fixings are outside the gasket seal.
