In the Hammond 1553 enclosures series now can be found also types with a sufficient space for a keyboard and display.
Series of ergonomic handheld enclosures – 1553 is familiar to many of you. All types from this series provide a reliable grip thanks to a pleasant side overmold, they feature the same shape and they´re available in various sizes. That´s why, it is possible to choose the type exactly bespoken to your requirements. However there was a limitation, if you wanted to use a relatively large keyboard and a spacious display.

This problem is solved by the novelty – 1553T series. It provides a sufficient space for a keyboard and display and at the same time, it is somewhat thicker than other types of 1553 series, what enables to use several PCBs stacked on each other. That´s why, the 1553T series is ideal for various hand-held instrumentation, controllers, data capture and similar applications. The display and keyboard areas are recessed, what provides an additional protection (suitable also for membrane keyboards). 1553T enclosures are available in a black and a light-grey version and also with the battery compartment (battery contacts are included). Removable end panels (1 or 2 depending on version) enable easy modification and a trouble-free usage of connectors, IR components and other. From a hand-held device, we naturally expect a higher dust and water resistance, what 1553T series with IP54 protection meets sufficiently. Last but not least
