One I/O panel not enough? New additions to Hammond’s 1553 hand-held family have two

08 April 2022

Hammond’s 1553 family now has three sizes with two removable end panels. Additional cable entries and I/O options are satisfying the requirements of many different applications.

The new additions to the 1553 family feature two flat removable plastic end panels rather than a single panel. Obviously, the 1553BX, CX and DX are without a battery compartment, but feedback suggests that additional options for cable entries and I/O are satisfying the requirements of many different applications. 

The 1553 soft-side family features an ergonomically curved shape that fits comfortably into the hand. They are moulded in general-purpose ABS with a soft plastic overmould for a comfortable grip. All five sizes with a single end panel, with or without a battery compartment, are available in six colours. The new BX, CX and DX twin end panel versions do not have a battery compartment and are initially available as standard in black and grey, with other colours to special order. They are ideal for housing hand-held instruments, remote controllers, flying lead machine controllers and many other applications where a stylish, comfortable and easy to hold enclosure is required. All sizes have four PCB standoffs moulded into the base.
