Hammond Electronics Launch 1552 Family of Hand-Held ABS Plastic Enclosures, samples available from Anglia

Date Published : 07/12/2023 Share with:

Hammond Electronics has launched the new 1552 family of elegant and functional hand-held enclosures.

Initially available in six sizes, the 1552 family of enclosures are IP54 rated for dust and moisture ingress and are flame retardant to UL94-V0. Constructed from robust ABS material, the enclosures feature an ergonomic design that fits comfortably into the hand, enabling it to be used for long periods in applications such as a machine control equipment. The 1552 family is also suitable for use as a desktop enclosure.

The end panels of the 1552 family are removable for easy modification and for use with flying cables. Hammond offer a customisation service for all of their enclosures where they can add holes, legends etc.. to the products based on customers exact requirements.

The 1552 family also has an alternative end panel option available separately which features an integral rubberised cord protector and strain relief bracket for customers wishing to integrate a cable into the enclosures.

Cord Protector & Strain Relief Bracket

The optional cord protector end panel kit is made from TPE and polycarbonate, it replaces the standard end panel and fits securely into the enclosure. The cord protector is compatible with wire diameters from 2mm to 6mm. Cables are secured inside the case with a cable tie-down and screws which are included in the cord protector kit.

In addition to the replaceable end plate, there is also an optional wall mounted holder available separately which allows the unit to be stored in a convenient location when not in use. The wall mounting holes are countersunk for flat head screws.

Wall Plate Holder

The 1552 family have many convenient features incorporated into the design of the products, such as a recess for a label, membrane keyboard or a display which is moulded into the top face of the enclosure and standoffs which are moulded in the base section allowing for the fitment of a PCB. The top of the enclosure is secured to the base with four self-tapping colour-coded screws; snap closures are also fitted to the centre of the longer units to prevent bowing.

The 1552 family is currently available in 50mm wide and either 22 or 30mm high sizes, with both heights available in lengths of 70, 110 and 150mm. All enclosures and accessories are available as standard in black and grey colour with a satin texture. For aesthetics the black cases are supplied with black screws whilst the grey cases are supplied with nickel plated screws.

Detailed specifications are available from Hammond including 2D and 3D CAD data.

The 1552 family of enclosures are suitable for a wide range of applications including industrial equipment, electronic hoists, medical devices, instrumentation and many more.
