Hylec-APL has produced a new video that shows the versatility and ease of use of its modular DIN rail-mounted PCB housings. The components are suitable for use in applications requiring timers, counters, relays or any other control or monitoring equipment where speedy installation and quick access may be required.

Both stepped and non-stepped designs are available in a choice of three heights (60mm, 73mm and 100mm) with a number of different lengths available across the range. Each kit is supplied with the specified module case, base and DIN Rail clip and PCB terminals, covers and lids as appropriate. Depending on preference, blank or transparent lids are available with either a snap-on or hinged fit. Once assembled, the PCBs can be mounted horizontally or vertically with multiple PCBs being accommodated if required.

Mark Severn, Director of Sales for Hylec-APL, comments: “It’s our aim to offer our customers solutions which make their professional lives easier; whether that’s simplifying installation processes, reducing total project costs or improving reliability. This range allows users to customise their housings around the needs of the project and then quickly mount the housing wherever it’s required. If they are likely to require access to the PCB at a later date they can specify a hinged lid, otherwise a transparent, snap-on lid allows the equipment to be monitored.”

In today’s world of fast-paced development, OEMs, contract manufacturers and electrical installers cannot be expected to retain expert levels of knowledge about every component that is launched on the market. Hylec-APL fills this knowledge gap by working with end-users during the specification stages to fully understand the requirements of the project and offer guidance based on the many years of industry experience the company has.
