Lockable stainless steel enclosures for challenging environments

Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier and manufacturer of electrical and electronic components and enclosures, has announced its new DEDSS Stainless Steel Series of lockable, solid door enclosures specially designed to provide high-quality, secure, cost-effective protection for specialist and demanding electronic and electrical installations.

The DEDSS Enclosure Series is IP66 rated and protects contents against water and dust, as well as being able to withstand impact to IK10 specifications and extremes of temperature ranging between – 20degC and +55degC. Suitable applications for DEDSS enclosures include corrosive environments, such as the chemical and petrochemical industries, and environments where strict hygiene is required, for example, the agro food sector.

The rugged DEDSS enclosures range is manufactured from grade 304 stainless steel and supplied as a complete kit. This includes a metal lock and key, a 2mm galvanised steel back plate, and external mounting feet and spacers. In addition, DEDSS enclosures come complete with an earth strap pre-wired and fitted between the door and the housing to save valuable installation time.

This comprehensive range encompasses six different sizes, ranging from 300mm high x 200mm wide x 150mm deep to 500mm high x 500mm wide x 200mm deep, so offering a wide choice capable of accommodating most installations. Many accessories that fit the DEDSS range are available from Hylec: cable glands, Kwik-Fix cable glands, venting elements, contactors/thermal overloads, filter fans and other fans.

Steve Robbins, Sales Director comments: “The DEDSS range provides the perfect solution for protecting delicate components in environments that demand very high standards of security and cleanliness, for example where hygiene must be maintained, such as hospitals, dental and veterinary practices, in addition to a whole host of other industries, such as food manufacturing.”

DEDSS Series lockable solid door stainless steel enclosures are available directly from Hylec-APL and are also held in stock by many UK distributors and wholesalers including Evatron, CPC, Rapid, QVS, Edmundson, Philex and more.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
