Sealed IP68 enclosures

The 1551W series of enclosures from Hammond Manufacturing is an IP68 sealed version of its popular 1551 miniature enclosure family. Available in five sizes, and all available with a plain or flanged lid, the UL94-V0 polycarbonate enclosures are suitable for use indoors or outdoors. They are available in black or grey, with a soft texture finish.

All enclosures are fitted with PCB stand-offs in the base, and the preformed silicone sealing gasket provides excellent protection against the ingress of dust or water, providing a watertight seal to protect the housed electronics.

The five sizes range from 60 x 35 x 22 mm to 100 x 59 x 25 mm. The flanged lid versions make mounting to any surface a simple and easy process, and provide a degree of tamper resistance by preventing access to the lid and base securing screws.

The rectangular and round vented 1551V versions are designed to house sensors and small sub-systems installed in the manufacturing environment. One of the key features is the snap-fit closure that allows repeated opening and closing without tools, thereby maximising the internal space for PCBs by eliminating screw fixings to secure the cover to the base. They feature ventilation slots on all four vertical faces of the cover, wall mounting slots, and a 15 mm cable knock-out in the base. All rectangular and round versions are also available in an unvented style in all housing sizes.

Latest high-impedance common mode filters

Latest high-impedance common mode filters

TDK Corporation has announced the introduction of its new KCZ1210DH800HRTD25 common mode filter for deployment in ultra-high-speed automotive interfaces.

This product is an addition to the KCZ1210DH Series that was released in February 2022. It enables substantial enhancements in noise control functions compared to conventional filters, with an impedance of 1000 Ω at 1 GHz and insertion loss of more than 25 dB. Due to the recent spread of advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) implementation, the speed of signal processing has ramped up significantly. Through this, the move to safer and more secure autonomous driving will be achieved. The new TDK filter contributes to preventing errors in high-speed signal processing in relation to front sensing cameras, mmWave radar, and LiDAR.

Through TDK’s proprietary internal electrode pattern arrangement, plus the integrated and sintered configuration of optimal low dielectric materials, this product achieves superior properties, alongside long-term reliability. Furthermore, by adding a conductive resin-based layer to the terminal electrodes, the risk of cracks appearing (due to thermal shocks) is reduced, and durability to mechanical stresses is increased.

The automotive-grade KCZ1210DH800HRTD25 common mode filter is extremely compact at 1,25 x 1,0 x 0,5 mm. It supports an operating temperature range of -55 to 125℃.

ABS Plastic Miniature Hand Held Enclosures

12 New Options Added to the 1551 Family

Hammond have increased their popular 1551 miniature enclosure family with the addition of three new plan sizes, each available in two heights and three colours: black, grey and translucent blue. The black and grey versions are available with either plain of flanged lids, the translucent blue ones come with a plain lid. The family now consists of 96 options, giving designers a wide choice for the best enclosure for their project. Moulded in general purpose ABS with a satin texture finish, all sizes have PCB mounting bosses in the base and colour matched fixings. The family is ideal for mounting small PCBs or they can be used as potting boxes.
