The latest addition to the popular 1455 series of extruded aluminium enclosures from Hammond Electronics is the 1455NHD,www.hammondmfg.com/1455NHD.htm, which features six integral heat dissipating fins in the extrusion profile, providing enhanced cooling capability for when high thermal loads are expected from the housed equipment.
Designed to house PCBs and discrete components, the 1455NHD is sized to accept the popular 100 x 160mm single Eurocard, which mounts horizontally into one of seven slots in the body of the enclosure. The removable flat metal end panels secure the PCB into the enclosure and can be easily machined with the required apertures for indicators, switches and connectors. The two piece body has a removable plate in the base gives good access to the interior, and both the top and base have large flat areas that give plenty of room for component mounting. Also extruded into the body are six internal and two external T Slots running the length of the enclosure. The external ones accept two removable mounting flanges for easy wall, shelf or bulkhead mounting; the internal ones can be used for mounting components using fixings that slide in to the slot. The enclosure is available with a clear or black anodised finish.
