Hammond Manufacturing debuts flanged extruded aluminum enclosures



Hammond Manufacturing has released the 1455F flanged extruded aluminium enclosure, adding a further variant to its 1455 standard family.

The 1455F features a new extrusion containing a flat base with integral mounting flanges.

The flanges, which extend beyond the body of the unit, have four notches to accept securing screws for mounting the units to a flat surface such as a wall, bulkhead or machine.

Two sizes, 80 x 54 x 23 mm and 120 x 54 x 23 mm, are initially available in clear and black anodized finish. Additional sizes will be released over the coming months.

The overall width is 77 mm including the two mounting flanges. Both the launch sizes are designed to accept 50 mm wide, 1.6 mm thick PCBs with lengths of either 80 or 120 mm.

There are two removable aluminium end panels, which are flat for easy machining for I/O components. The PCB mounts into horizontal slots in the body of the enclosure; four alternative vertical positions are available.

The 1455 family now extends to the 29-strong standard 1455, ranging in size from 60 x 45 x 25 mm to 220 x 165 x 52 mm.

Other standard variants include the IP65 sealed 1457, the screened 1457-EMI version and the 1455HD thermally efficient units.
