Designed for portable applications where touchscreens and electromechanical controllers, such as joysticks and rollerballs are used, the new 1599 Tablet enclosure from Hammond Electronics features a low-profile rounded ergonomic design which fits comfortably into the hand to prevent operator fatigue during extended periods of use.
Available as standard in RAL9011 black and RAL 7035 grey, the unit is moulded in UL94V-0 flame retardant ABS. It is sealed to IP54, allowing it to be used both inside and outside, it has an easily machined removable panel for connectors, external power leads and switches, and is available with or without a battery compartment.
The 1599 Tablet measures 240 x 190 x 30 mm, with 10 PCB standoffs moulded into both the top and base sections to give a number of different mounting positions for circuit boards and other components. The top has a 0,75 mm inlay recess across the entire surface of the unit for mounting membrane keyboards if required; the removable panel, positioned on one side of the enclosure, is available in ABS or, optionally for remote control use, in IR translucent polycarbonate.
The enclosure is assembled with six machine screws, threaded into integral brass bushes in the top section, ensuring that if repetitive assembly and disassembly are required, the sealing integrity of the unit is not compromised over time. The battery compartment accepts four AA or two PP9 batteries.
