Ergonomic handheld enclosure family

An extended range of the Hammond 1553 enclosures are now stocked at JPR Electronics.

The enclosures are said to be ergonomically designed for hand-held comfort and manufactured in rugged ABS. They are available in three sizes (117 x 79 x 25mm, 117 x 79 x 32mm and 147 x 90 x 25mm), should be suitable for instrumentation, POS, mobile data gathering and test equipment and are moulded in UL94-V0 flame ABS

A soft grey edge grip may also be specified for secure and comfortable handling.

Four recently introduced colours are available to in addition to the original colours and are designed to accommodate white and near white LEDs, readouts and displays.

The top cover of the Hammond 1553 is recessed to accommodate a membrane, keypad or display and the enclosure is available with or without a battery compartment with a door. It can be supplied with connectors for 2 x AA or PP3 9V batteries. The front panel is removable, PCB stand-offs are moulded into the case and all assembly hardware is said to be included.

JPR says that the 1553W enclosure features a one-piece silicone gasket and a tongue and groove construction moulded into the top and bottom halves. The top and base are assembled with four screws that locate into brass inserts in the top moulding and the fixing positions are outside the gasket.

All 1553W enclosures are available factory modified with machining and silk screening to the end customers’ requirements. To assist with the design process, AutoCAD and PDF dimensioned drawings can be downloaded here.
