    Hylec-APL launches new secure maintenance-free DEDS Series lockable IP66 IK10 Steel Enclosures

    IP66 and IK10 rated, protects exterior installations: cost effective solution for HVAC, lighting, and many other applications

    April 2016 – Wellingborough, UK: Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components, enclosures and rack systems, today announces its new DEDS Series of lockable, solid door steel enclosures specially designed to provide high-quality, secure, cost-effective protection for exterior electronic and electrical installations.  Launching to coincide with Hylec-APL’s appearance at ELEX Westpoint in Exeter, the DEDS Enclosure Series is IP66 rated against water and dust ingress, meets IK10 specifications against impact and complies with IEC 60529 standards. 

    For superior robustness and longevity, DEDS enclosure housings are guaranteed against corrosion for three years and are fabricated from galvanised steel, powder-coated in grey RAL7035.  DEDS Series enclosure back plates are manufactured from 2mm galvanised steel and carry a similar 3-year anti-corrosion guarantee. All threaded studs are rust-proof stainless steel. As the DEDS Series is primarily designed with exterior installation in mind, the gland-plate modules for cable entry (which can be top or base mounted) are supplied with IP66-rated sealing gaskets for total protection against dust and water jets or waves. A further benefit of the DEDS Series enclosures is an earth-wired stud between the door and the housing, which saves valuable installation time. 

    DEDS Series steel enclosures are supplied complete with lock and key and wall mounting brackets. This comprehensive range includes ten different sizes, ranging from 300mm x 200mm x 130mm to 1250mm x 600mm x 300mm. A wide range of accessories is also available, including cable glands, Kwik-Fix cable glands, venting elements, contactors/thermal overloads and fans.

    Comments Mark Severn, Director of Sales for Hylec-APL: “Our new solid door, lockable DEDS steel Series provides a rugged solution for a myriad of electrical and electronic applications, including installations such as holiday home consumer units where protection against the elements and tampering are important considerations.”

    DEDS Series lockable solid door steel enclosures are available directly from Hylec-APL and are also held in stock by many of the UK’s leading distributors and wholesalers including Evatron, CPC, Rapid, QVS, Edmundson, Philex and more. For more details please visit:
