Die-Cast Enclosures in 3 New Shapes from Hammond
Odd-shaped enclosures.
Cheektowaga, NY — Hammond Manufacturing has extended its popular 1590 family with the introduction of the 1590TRP and STP models. The first applications for the new shapes have been for audio equipment, guitar stomp boxes, industrial remote controllers, desktop switch arrays and hand-held test equipment controllers. This introduction comes in response to customer requests for die-cast enclosures to provide a strong and robust environmentally sealed housing with good EMC screening in a non-rectangular shape, The octagonal 1590TRP measures 5.23-in. (133mm), across the flats and 1.54-in. (39mm) high. It can house a round PCB up to 5.0-in. (126mm) in diameter. Two trapezoidal units (1590STP) are also 1.54-in. (39mm) high; the smaller portrait format trapezoidal unit is 4.41-in. (112mm), long, measuring 3.11-in. (79mm) at its wide end, narrowing to 2.42-in. (62mm) at its shorter end. The larger landscape format trapezoidal enclosure is 3.74-in. (95mm), deep; the wide end measures 5.95-in. (151mm), to 4.79-in. (122mm) at the narrow end.

All three types are available in natural finish and in a smooth gloss polyester powder paint, which does not chip after machining and provides a good surface for labels and silk screening. The strong and vibrant painted colors are Black; Cobalt Blue, RAL 5013; Green, RAL 6024; Light Gray, RAL 7035; Orange, RAL 2009 and Red, RAL 3011. A lap joint seals the units to IP54, protecting against the ingress of dust and water, and the painted finish is only applied to the external surfaces, maintaining RFI integrity.

All units can be supplied factory modified with machining and silk screening to user specification; AutoCAD and PDF dimensioned drawings can be downloaded from
