Enhanced corrosion resistant enclosure range

Jon Lawson

Protection for electronic components can now be more resilient and longer lasting with a new enclosure range that offer corrosion resistance of up to 1000 hours in salt spray.

Corrosion and Impact Resistant Enclosures have recently joined the heavy duty range at Deltron, offering enhanced resistance of up to 1000 hours in salt spray, combined with high impact resistance of 7 joules in accordance with EN 60079, while maintaining an IP68 rating.

Tom Downing, Product Manager at Deltron Enclosures commented; “There is demand for enclosures that can offer greater corrosion resistance than provided by standard aluminium. In addition, all IP testing has been carried out after impact testing to verify that the seal is maintained when the enclosure is treated roughly. This range of enclosures offers our best protection yet over the combined effects of water, impact and corrosive environments.”

Manufactured from GD-AlSi12, the enclosures are suitable for environments with high levels of electrolytes such as marine or buried applications, or in areas where the enclosure is susceptible to knocks. Such sectors include automotive, telecoms, food processing and leisure, plus factories where equipment is frequently washed down for sanitisation.

The enclosures are finished using Epoxy-polyester (hybrid) powder coating, in grey (from stock), black or red (to order). They are available in ten sizes between 45 x 50 x 30mm and 140 x 140 x 91mm.

Deltron Enclosures has the capabilities to machine the box, add finishes and assemble all the components to meet project specifications and industry regulations. From drilling to cut-outs, painting, silk screening and more, you could take advantage of first class technical support from our engineers, competitive pricing and low medium order quantities or high volume production runs.
