03-07-2020 | Hammond | Subs & Systems

Hammond Electronics has released its 1597DIN family of UL94-V0 flame-retardant plastic enclosures for mounting to standard IEC/EN 60715 35mm DIN rails for applications including industrial control equipment, equipment management and monitoring, automation, HVAC controllers and distributed IoT equipment.

The family consists initially of four sizes: 2mm, 4mm, 6mm and 9mm standard 17.5mm module widths. All sizes offer two mounting positions for the terminal blocks, maximising I/O availability and providing headroom for future expansion if needed. There are two horizontal PCB mounting slots in the body and two stand-offs in the base for component or PCB mounting. Plain, knock out, vented, and slotted terminal covers are provided separately and can be mixed and matched in the bodies as needed. Primarily designed to accept PCBs is a slimline 22.5mm wide x 118mm deep x 90mm high polycarbonate control box with ventilated sides and a shaped front panel.

All units provide simple no-tool snap-together assembly and easy disassembly for access to the internal components or PCB when demanded. The bodies are ventilated on the top and bottom faces and provide a recess in the front panel for mounting identification labels or other graphics.

The bases are moulded in dark grey PPO with a polystyrene DIN rail mounting clip, and the main enclosure body is RAL 7035 light grey polycarbonate.
