The full range will consist of sixteen sizes, all of which will be available by the end of 2009. Available with a natural or black epoxy powder coated finish, the units are supplied in two versions, standard and watertight. The watertight units are supplied with a separate compressible self-adhesive gasket that, when fitted between the lid and the base, provides dust and water sealing to IP66, enabling them to be used in both benign and hostile environments.
The thin wall aluminium enclosures have high impact strength but are also easily drilled and punched to accept cables, switches and indicators as required. The initially available sizes range from 60 x 55 x 26mm to 115 x 90 x 51mm; the largest size in the family, to be introduced later in the year, will be 275 x 175 x 65mm. All units can be supplied factory modified with machining and silk screening to the user's specification; AutoCAD and PDF dimensioned drawings can be downloaded from www.hammondmfg.com.
