    Hylec-APL Launches IP67 Enclosures for the Electrical Market

    Leading manufacturer and supply specialist of electrical components to industry, Hylec-APL, has launched a new series of enclosures to complement its existing range of connectors, terminal blocks and junction boxes. Manufactured by Hylec’s UK based manufacturing division, DE Controls, the robust and versatile all weather enclosures boast up to IP67 protection. The enclosures, which have a unique registered design, are ideal for use by OEMs and end users in the electrical and electronic engineering markets.

    This patented range of enclosures is available as standard (no holes) unit or with1 to 4 pre-moulded holes in the top suitable for fitting of 22mm switches. The high ingress protection, makes them suitable for many external applications as well as indoor applications which will be subjected to wash-down environments. The enclosures are extremely robust with wall thickness of up to 5mm which allows them to substitute for metal enclosures in many situations.

    The design includes a unique feature for easy mounting; optional snap-on flange brackets and DIN rail brackets are available for all enclosure sizes. This ensures that the enclosure is not compromised by drilling of fixing holes in the base for the fixing brackets and helps to make the range a truly universal product. All the enclosures incorporate vertical PCB mounting support slots as well as horizontal self tapping screw supports. They are delivered complete with 2x M20 threaded cable gland entry.

    Available in a range of flame retardant materials, including polycarbonate, each enclosure size can be specified as a compact or deep base version. The compact version allows for easy installation in applications with limited space while the deep base version provides sufficient internal space to fit a horizontally mounted PCB and still have space for switch contact blocks above. All products comply fully with ROHS and REACH standards.
