Polycarbonate enclosures for electronic equipment
By Alison Dunn
Hammond Manufacturing has launched its new PCJ Series, a family of polycarbonate enclosures designed for housing electrical and electronic equipment in installations where NEMA 4X (IP66) environmental sealing for dust and water protection is required. The screw-down cover versions meet the higher NEMA 6P sealing requirements. An initial five sizes, ranging from 5.93 x 6.16 x 4.91 inches to 13.94 x 12.16 x 10.82 inches are available; the basic enclosure can be supplied in 80 different configurations to suit the intended application. Polycarbonate is an extremely versatile material; it offers good impact resistance, resists attack by aggressive chemicals and does not crack or chip. It can be used in ambient temperatures of -35 to +130 degrees Celsisu, allowing installation in a wide variety of industrial environments across many different industries.
