We talked to SOS electronic product specialist, Martin Brestovič, about Hammond 1551W miniature enclosures with increased IP protection.
What is the fastest way to identify the waterproof version of the miniature enclosures in Hammond's wide range?
It is very simple. According to the name of the series. The Hammond 1551W - with the W, which stands for "Watertight", is the latest version of the well-known and extended 1551 family of small enclosures. The Canadian manufacturer, Hammond Manufacturing, produces this product series in various versions, e.g. with a cutout for a USB connector (1551USB), with ventilation holes (1551V), but also in round shapes (1551SNAP).
What does the 1551W series bring compared to previous versions?
Of course, the main plus is the IP68 protection, instead of IP54 - thanks to the design with a silicone seal, which is replaceable. Moreover, the entire series is available only in the highest quality version - made of polycarbonate (PC) with a soft satin finish.
What other features and benefits does this new series of enclosures offer?
Enclosures come in 5 basic sizes, from 60 x 35 x 22 to 100 x 59 x 25 mm. In addition to the dimensions, for many of you who also mount your devices on a wall or panel, the design of the enclosures themselves, with or without a flanged lid, may be valuable.
The flange enables easy mounting on the panel or on the wall while maintaining the waterproofness of the enclosure. At the same time, it provides a certain degree of protection against unwanted intrusion into the enclosure, as it prevents direct access to the lid and the screws securing the lid. And as we are used to with the Hammond brand, all versions are available in classic black or light gray color as standard.
Are these waterproof enclosures available directly from the SOS electronic warehouse?
Yes. We have added some of the most popular versions of the 1551W waterproof series to our standard stock enclosures offer. And we are able to deliver all other versions upon order in a short period of time and under favorable conditions.
