If you ever searched for an aluminium enclosure for your project, you´ve probably come across the Canadian producer Hammond mfg., producing a huge amount of enclosures in various versions and sizes. If you even took a closer look at Hammond´s offer, whether on our website or on the website of the producer, probably you´ve also noticed an attractive series with inconspicuous name “1455“, from which we keep a lot of types directly in our stock. 1455 series simply looks well and it´s also well-constructed as for mounting and fixing of PCB.
1455 series represents a wide family of various sizes and even shapes. Types that are 6 to 22cm long can be found here, in various widths and heights. They´re also available with plastic or aluminium end panels while plastic ones are also provided in attractive colour versions from polycarbonate. Colour open bezels are also available. The enclosure can have one of four elox (anodized) colours – natural, black, blue and newly also red one.
All sizes except the smallest ones (1455A, B, C a D) have a body made of 2 parts, where the upper part slides into a bottom part in the “U” shape. That enables a good access to electronics inside the enclosure.
It is interesting that besides typically shaped types (for example Hammond 1455L), 1455 series offers even a quite differently looking group 1455A and 1455B with oval sides, available only with plastic end panels.
If you have a very “hot” application :-), then the solution can be the 1455 NHD version („heat dissipating“), with ribbons on its sides.
As it´s well known, elox is one of the most durable surface treatments, because it´s aluminium oxide made by electric oxidizing (anodizing). Resistance of surface treatment is based on the fact that the Al2O3 (corundum) is a very hard and stable compound.
