Hammond manufacturing are a market leader within the industry with decades of experience within the industrial and electrical enclosures sphere. Durable and robust, this electronic instrument enclosure is crafted from a resilient diecast aluminium alloy that balances toughness with ease of machining. It comes in two appealing options: a natural vibra finish or a subtly textured, light black powder paint.
The unpainted variant boasts a vibra finish, ensuring a smooth surface without any sharp edges. Meanwhile, the painted version features a resilient satin black polyester powder paint that remains intact even after machining. To elevate its assembled appearance, black screws are thoughtfully included. Featuring lap joint construction, this design effectively safeguards against dust infiltration and splashing water. Additionally, it enhances EMI/RFI shielding for improved performance. However, it's important to note that the enclosure's water-tight gaskets do not offer shielding capabilities. In addition to this, the lid is securely fastened using stainless steel machine screws, which conveniently secure into pre-tapped holes within the enclosure.
Think inside the box! Hammond 1550 enclosures are crafted with the intention of meeting IP54 standards without the need for a gasket or achieving IP66 with the inclusion of a gasket. Enhanced IP67 gaskets are also an available upgrade. Facilitating effortless P.C. board mounting, the enclosure features a minimal low side wall draft angle of 2 degrees or less. For accurate measurements, it's advised to add an extra 0.16" (4 mm) to the enclosure's depth to account for the lid.
