Aesthetic and relatively massive enclosures from company Fastron are the novelty able to provide an attractive look to your devices.
Metal enclosures are a stable part of our offer. We usually choose them, when wanting to produce a device with a higher mechanical rigidity or with a higher resistance to disturbances (EMI shielding) but even for example in cases when we want our device to have a more “luxury” impression. An interesting novelty in this segment are new aluminium enclosures of the FSG and FHG series from company Fastron.
● FSG (FSG1084, FSG1584, FSG2084, FSG2584) series enclosures are constructed as 4-piece with 1.5mm thick walls and with a front/ rear panel up to 2mm thick. Enclosure construction enables an easy assembly of a target device and also a good access in case of servicing and similar. Enclosures are supplied assembled and with 4 self-adhesion feet. Enclosures are treated with a green powder coating (upper part) and with a grey coating (bottom part). Front and rear part are chromate ( a chemical process creating a thin layer protecting from corrosion and improving adhesion of further coatings/ paint). It´s worth to notice considerably different dimensions (width) of the smallest and the biggest enclosure. A wide front panel offers an interesting construction and design alternative to common enclosures.
● FHG series enclosure – FHG214 is a relatively big DIN rail enclosure featuring a precise construction and very good shielding properties. All-aluminium construction and an integrated DIN-rail holder give a proposal of a long lifetime. Vast perforation enables a trouble-free intensive cooling of electronics.

For the growing interest about miniature SMT inductors, we bring you series of Fastron SMT inductors 0805AS and 0805F. These are quality wire-wound components, suitable even for very high frequencies.
It isn´t very long ago, when the best high frequency inductor was a relatively big coil with the air core, created only by few turns of the copper wire. Partially it is still true, as the laws of the physics don´t change, but in respect to nowadays miniaturisation requirements, the usage of SMT coils is in many applications more convenient. Moreover, miniature coils feature much smaller mutual influence caused by their own magnetic field, what enables to further miniaturize dimensions of a device. Last but not least, an inductor is a very effective, almost lossless filter, on the places we need to eliminate interference, or to prevent its penetration into other parts of a device. That´s why is their usage as an LC filter actual in almost every device with processors, logic gates and similar components.
Fastron 0805AS are coils with the ceramic core, which has properties – from a magnetic aspect, very near to the air, that´s why this series has a relatively high Q factor, high self resonant frequency and a high linearity. They are available in inductances from few nH up to 10 uH. Thanks to their very good HF properties, they are also suitable into various HF parts of receivers, transmitters, circuits for signal processing, input stages of AD converters, HF filters etc., up to frequencies of few GHz.
