The 1590 die-cast enclosures family from Hammond Manufacturing consists of 41 different sizes in the standard rectangular sizes. Two new sizes, the 1590 BX2, 10 x 2.8 x 1.4 inches (254 x 70 x 35mm) and 1590 BX, 10 x 2.8 x 2.0 inches (254 x 70 x 51mm), have been added.
The two new sizes have also been specified in a completely different requirement, a radio antenna splitter, where multiple local feeds are broken out from the incoming aerial. In both applications, the intrinsic RFI shielding, the mechanical strength and the environmental sealing of the 1590 were important requirements.
A lap joint seals the units to IP54, protecting against the ingress of dust and water, and the painted finish is only applied to the external surfaces, maintaining RFI integrity. The 1590 is available as standard in natural finish or with a satin black painted finish.
