Hammond adds IP65 version to its ergonomic 1553 handheld family

03 April 2015

The new 1553W IP65 sealed version of the ergonomically designed 1553 handheld enclosure family from Hammond Electronics are intended for housing any electronics that will be used in environments where dust and water is likely to be present.

It features an ergonometric curved shape that fits comfortably into the hand, and is initially available in three sizes: 117 x 79 x 25mm, 117 x 79 x 32mm and 147 x 90 x 25mm. All sizes are moulded in UL94-V0 flame retardant ABS in RAL 7035 light grey or RAL 9011 black, both over-moulded with RAL 7012 grey soft side grips. 

The top cover is recessed to allow a membrane keypad to be flush mounted, and PCB standoffs are provided in the top and base. The IP65 environmental sealing is achieved by a rubber gasket in a slot in the base.

The top and base are assembled with four screws that locate into brass inserts in the top moulding, facilitating repeated access to the housed electronics. The fixing positions are outside the gasket, ensuring the integrity of the seal.

An integral end panel forms part of the top cover, providing an easy to machine area for cable entry, switches and indicators.

To reduce time to market and modification costs, all 1553W enclosures are available factory modified with machining and silk screening to the user’s specification; to help the design process, AutoCAD and PDF dimensioned drawings can be downloaded here.
