Hammond acquires small enclosures business and re-launches Clipper

20 September 2006 News

Hammond Manufacturing has acquired the small enclosures business of West Hyde Enclosures which has ceased trading. Manufacture has now resumed in the UK from the original West Hyde tooling, giving continuity of supply for customers who had previously specified the enclosures.

The Clipper family is an entry level flameproof ABS enclosure, intended for housing small PCBs for handheld applications. Four sizes, from 40 x 60 x 19 mm to 125 x 70 x 22 mm, are available in either black or grey; the three largest sizes are fitted with a battery compartment suitable for either a 9 V PP3 or 2 x AA batteries. The top surface of the enclosure is completely flat, so labels, silk-screening and membrane keyboards can easily be applied to the unit; machining for switches and indicators is also very simple.

A removable plastic front panel is captured between the two halves of the enclosure, a lap joint construction protects against dust entry and PCB mounting standoffs are moulded into the interior. A satin texture finish gives good wear resistance and the unit is ergonomically styled to give a comfortable grip.
