Favourite series 1553 hand-held enclosures are now available even in a water-resistant version with IP65 rating.
Ergonomic enclosures of the 1553 series with a non-slipping surface found their place on a market very quickly. Precise construction with brass bushings, stainless steel screws included, easy PCB placing on standoffs and other details make this series of enclosures universal for practically any “mobile” applications.
Despite very well fitting parts of an enclosure minimizing a possibility of a dust ingress into enclosure, there certainly are applications with a higher risk of water and dust penetration. For these cases the new “W” version is suitable, i.e. 1553W with integrated sealing and a whole construction designed so as to meet IP65 requirements. Fixing positions for screws are located outside the gasket ensuring sealing integrity.
Hammond 1553W series is available in “B”, “C” and “D” sizes, i.e. 1553WB (117x79x25mm), 1553WC (117x79x32mm) and 1553WD (147x90x25mm). All sizes are further available in two colours – whit-grey and black (GY/BK). Further details can be found in datasheets at particular types below this article.

Besides heavenly blue, now the Hammond 1455 aluminium enclosures are also available as hellish red.
There are several possibilities how to make a device exquisite – and one of them is certainly a unique design. From this point of view, enclosures with red-anodized surface are simply eye-catching. Elegant red surface (matt) makes a luxury impression and it´s obvious at the first sight, that we don´t deal with a simple color painting but a high-grade hard coating (anodized).New red surface finish is offered by Hammond for many 1455, where can be found enclosures of various sizes, with a length of 6 to 22 cm. 1455 series enclosures are available with plastic or metal end panels, while plastic end panels are also available in attractive color versions from polycarbonate.
This novelty is so far available upon order, with a short leadtime. Detailed information can be found in datasheets at particular enclosures below this article.

Stylish and mainly functional are new enclosures from Hammond dedicated for miniature computers..
Credit card-sized miniature computers (SBCs) experience big popularity and they´re quite similar as for th shape and size. Here belong for example Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone black, Arduino Uno, Due, Tre, Mega and Freescale Freedom. They´re used as built-in into a target device but often also as standalone. Just for these purposes are suitable ready-made enclosures designed exactly for a given type.
Despite a similar size of various SBC-s, their physical construction and mainly a position of various connectors are different. That´s why Hammond comes with enclosures designed exactly to fit to a given microcomputer. From several available types, in our store can be fopund types for Raspberry Pi (model B) marked as HAMPIxxx and types for BeagleBone black marked as HAMBONxx. As we might expect, all connectors, expansion slots etc. are easily accessible while maintaining a great mechanical protection of the module itself. Enclosures are constructed to be closed by a “click”, that´s why no tools are necessary to open or close them. Particular details are probably best illustrated on the attached pictures.

One of the newest types of enclosures in the Hammond portfolio are ergonomic oval enclosures perfectly suitable for various industrial controllers.
High quality enclosures from the portfolio of producer Hammond n our offer are probably familiar to you. They usually have a classic right-angle shape, perhaps except handheld enclosures series 1553 or also 1553T. This time we have here a novelty which looks quite different from all common enclosures. It is a series of plastic enclosures 1599 Tablet, specially designed for a construction of various control panels using joysticks, touch screens, membrane keyboards and other control elements. Enclosures are developed with an aim to reach an ergonomic shape and just the round corners ensure significantly better grip preventing fatigue of operator´s hands.
Company Hammond comes right with several versions and so we can choose smaller (1599TABM), bigger (1599TABL), light gray (RAL7035) or black, without or with a battery compartment. As usually, an enclosure is supplied with screws and at battery versions also with battery contacts for 4x AA batteries and 2 pcs of 9V batteries (it´s possible to choose, which contacts will be used).
Even in enclosures can be found a tablet – Hammond 1599 – [Link]
Company Hammond brings to market quality universal holders enabling to use your device even on a DIN rail.
DIN rail has admittedly a lot of advantages and no wonder, that it became a very favourite „platformou“ for not only distribution boxes, but also for various alarms, centrals, and other devices even with a finer electronics.
Naturally, to attach an enclosure to a DIN rail it is necessary that the enclosure was directly designed for a DIN rail or it can be any other enclosure amended with a suitable holder (clip). DIN rail enclosures are usually the first choice, but their shape, size, material and other features aren´t always suitable for our concrete device. For these purposes we incorporated to our stock offer 4 new holders of the 1427DIN series. 3 types – 1427DIN42M, 1427DIN75M and 1427DIN100M are made of aluminium with an anodized surface and 1 type – 1427DINCLIP is form a rigid nylon (UL94-V0). All aluminium types are supplied including a screw, washer and nut for fastening to an enclosure. Aluminium types are constructed so that to attach or loosen from a DIN rail, no tool is necessary. A reliable fastening to DIN rail ensures a spring from a galvanized steel and to its release, it´s only necessary to press the clip from the bottom and to tilt the upper part from a DIN rail. An advantage of holders is, that they´re usable with various enclosures, even from other producers.
Detailed drawings can be found in datasheets at given types. On the Hammond website it´s also possible to find CAD files and 3D models. In case of interest in any HAMMOND products please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In the Hammond 1553 enclosures series now can be found also types with a sufficient space for a keyboard and display.
Series of ergonomic handheld enclosures – 1553 is familiar to many of you. All types from this series provide a reliable grip thanks to a pleasant side overmold, they feature the same shape and they´re available in various sizes. That´s why, it is possible to choose the type exactly bespoken to your requirements. However there was a limitation, if you wanted to use a relatively large keyboard and a spacious display.
This problem is solved by the novelty – 1553T series. It provides a sufficient space for a keyboard and display and at the same time, it is somewhat thicker than other types of 1553 series, what enables to use several PCBs stacked on each other. That´s why, the 1553T series is ideal for various hand-held instrumentation, controllers, data capture and similar applications. The display and keyboard areas are recessed, what provides an additional protection (suitable also for membrane keyboards). 1553T enclosures are available in a black and a light-grey version and also with the battery compartment (battery contacts are included). Removable end panels (1 or 2 depending on version) enable easy modification and a trouble-free usage of connectors, IR components and other.
From a hand-held device, we naturally expect a higher dust and water resistance, what 1553T series with IP54 protection meets sufficiently. Last but not least – a relatively robust construction from a flame retardant ABS plastic and brass bushings give an assumption of a long lifetime and durability.
All 4 versions became our stable stock items, detailed drawings including 3D viewings can be found in datasheets at particular types. On the Hammond website, you can also find CAD files and 3D models. In case of interest in any HAMMOND products please contact us at email@example.com.

Company Hammond Manufacturing is probably familiar to you in context with high quality aluminium and plastic enclosures. But Hammond Manufacturing also produces a wide range of audio transformers, chokes and lamp transformers.
Audio transformers are mainly known to those, who work with professional sound equipment, microphones and high-end lamp amplifiers. A main function of transformers in audio devices is above all impedance matching. Various audio signal sources, like for example microphones, have an impedance different from impedance required for further signal transmission. Naturally, without impedance conversion, a direct connection into a transmission chain would cause a significant change of signal level, moreover frequency dependent, lower resistance to interference, or an overload of an end stage (at a lamp amplifier). At the same time transformers provide a galvanic disjunction, thus their usage is often convenient also from safety reasons.
Advantages / Features:
- top quality
- balanced frequency response
- low insertion loss
Hammond Manufacturing has long-term experience with a development and production of audio transformers. In a production portfolio we can find various series, from simple ones up to top wideband series, like for example the 850A series with a frequency response +/- 0.5 dB from 20 Hz to 20 KHz. Another group of components consist of lamp transformers. Here we can find output transformers, supply transformers, chokes, but even drivers and also many construction components.

Precise construction, many mounting options of internal components and resistance to dust and water – all this will provide you the Hammond 1554 enclosures series.
Plastic enclosures Hammond 1554 series are designed with emphasis on a water and dust protection of components and devices. This is ensured by a proper two piece “tongue & groove” lid construction and by a replaceable pre-formed silicone gasket seal. Thanks to these details, enclosures meet IP66 class. Lid is secured with M4 stainless steel machine screws (included), threaded into integral stainless steel bushings (for repetitive assembly & disassembly). The same material of screws and bushings avoid corrosion caused by dissimilar metals. Secure mounting of inner components secure four M3 threaded integral brass inserts and/or standoffs. Vertical placing of PCBs is also possible thanks to molded guides (for 1.5mm thick boards). The enclosure can be mounted to a wall or shelf through the back of the enclosure, with openings outside of the gasket seal.
Hammond 1554 series contains types of various sizes, made of ABS – UL94 HB, polycarbonate – UL94 V0 and also versions with transparent or smoked lids. Enclosures made of polycarbonate are UV stabilized and recommended for outdoor use. Types made of ABS are recommended for indoor use only. Upon request are also available galvanized steel inner panel and mounting feets.
From our stock we offer you 1554FGY made of ABS and two types made of polycarbonate – 1554C2GY, 1554C2GYCL – with a transparent lid. Detailed information will provide you the Hammond 1554F and 1554C2 datasheets. On the Hammond website are also available the files for AutoCAD and 3D models.
