Bürklin Electronics now offers the new 1552 family of hand-held enclosures from Hammond Electronics. Initially offers in six sizes, the IP54 rated UL94-V0 flame-retardant ABS enclosure provides an ergonomic design that fits comfortably into the hand, allowing it to be employed for a long period in applications including machine controllers or electric hoist controls.
The end panels are removable for simple modification, and for employment with flying cables, an alternative end panel with an integral rubberised cord protector and a strain relief bracket is also available. An optional wall-mounted holder permits the unit to be stored in a convenient location when not in use. The enclosure can also be employed as a desktop enclosure. All the launch sizes are 50mm wide and either 22mm or 30mm high, with both heights provided in lengths of 70mm, 110mm and 150mm. All sizes are offered as standard in black and grey with a satin texture.
A recess for a membrane keyboard or a display is moulded in the face at the top and PCB standoffs in the base section. The top is fastened to the base with four self-tapping colour-coded screws; snap closures are fitted to the centre of the longer units to stop bowing.
