Stainless steel industrial enclosures for problem corrosion areas

29-07-2020 | Hammond | Subs & Systems

The Hammond Electronics IP66 EJSS family is offered in 304 or 316-grade stainless steel and supplied as standard in a natural smooth brushed finish. Sealed to IP66, the product is intended for employment as an electric, hydraulic or pneumatic control housing, an instrument enclosure, electrical junction box or terminal wiring enclosure. In applications such as food processing, a formed lip on the enclosure divert flowing liquids and contaminants away from the seamless poured-in-place gasket in the door, allowing it to be hosed down during cleaning. Stainless steel is also an outstanding material for installation in areas where corrosion may be a problem.

The product family is offered in 22 sizes, ranging from 102mm x 102mm x 76mm to 406mm x 356mm x 254mm. All but the two smallest sizes are provided complete with a 1.6mm thick internal unpainted galvanised steel panel. The product meets IEC 60529 IP66 for European and CE, UL and NEMA 3R, 4, 4X, 12, and 13 requirements for North American markets.

The body and cover are constructed from 1.3mm stainless steel with smooth, continuously welded seams without knockouts, cut-outs, or holes. Integral heavy-duty full-width top and bottom brackets facilitate mounting the enclosure to an external surface. The cover, mounted on a heavy-duty continuous hinge, opens through 180-degrees for good access; a quarter turn latch prevents casual unauthorised access by requiring a tool for operation. A bonding stud is provided on the door, and a grounding stud is fitted to the enclosure.
