Hammond Manufacturing releases mini ventilated sensor enclosures
February 21, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
February 21, 2019 – Hammond Manufacturing has released 1551V miniature ventilated sensor enclosures to house sensors and small sub-systems installed in the manufacturing environment as part of IoT systems.
While there is no relevant international standard, the 1551V enclosures are designed around the PCB sizes selected by leading sensor manufacturers for their latest generations of products.
The ABS UL94-HB 1551V is available in black, grey and white as standard. The four plan sizes, 80 x 80, 80 x 40, 60 x 60 and 40 x 40 mm are all 20 mm high, and maximum PCB sizes are 74 x 74, 74 x 34, 54 x 54 and 34 x 34 mm, respectively.
Four PCB mounts are moulded into the base and the 20 mm height gives enough space for board-mounted RJ45, USB and other standard communication interfaces. To simplify access, the snap-fit closure allows repeated opening and closing without tools. There are ventilation slots on all four vertical faces and mounting slots and a 15 mm cable knockout in the base.
