Hammond Electronics has a new family of handheld enclosures that are designed for ergonomic use in applications such as machine controllers or electric hoist controls.
Initially available in six different sizes, the IP54 rated UL94-V0 flame-retardant ABS 1552 family of enclosures are designed to fit comfortably into the hand, enabling them to be used for long periods of time without strain.
The end panels are removable for easy modification, and for use with flying cables, an alternative end panel with an integral rubberised cord protector and a strain relief bracket is available. An optional wall mounted holder allows the unit to be stored in a convenient location when not in use.
The 1552 can also be used as a desktop enclosure.
All units are 50mm wide and either 22 or 30mm high, with both heights available in lengths of 70, 110 and 150mm. All sizes are available as standard in black and grey with a satin texture.
A recess for a membrane keyboard or a display is moulded in the top face and PCB standoffs are moulded in the base section. The top is secured to the base with four self-tapping colour-coded screws; snap closures are fitted to the centre of the longer units to prevent bowing.
