Flanged extruded aluminium enclosures for easy surface-mountingNew 1455F flanged extruded aluminium enclosures from Hammond Electronics add a further variant to the company's popular 1455 standard family. The 1455F features a new extrusion with a flat base incorporating mounting flanges. These flanges, which extend beyond the body of the unit, have four notches to accept securing screws for mounting the units to a flat surface such as a machine, wall or bulkhead.

Two sizes are available initially, 80x54x23mm and 120x54x23mm, in a clear or black anodised finish; additional sizes will be released over the coming months. The overall width is 77mm including the two mounting flanges. Both the launch sizes are designed to accept 50mm wide 1.6mm thick PCBs with lengths of either 80 or 120mm. There are two removable aluminium end panels, which are flat for easy machining for I/O components. The PCB mounts into horizontal slots in the body of the enclosure; four alternative vertical positions are available.

The 1455F is the latest addition to the 1455 family, which now extends to the 29-strong standard 1455, ranging in size from 60x45x25mm to 220x165x52mm. Other standard variants include the IP65 sealed 1457, the screened 1457-EMI version and the 1455HD thermally efficient units.
