Aluminum enclosures tackle harsh environments

Rolec’s aluDOOR is a ‘go anywhere’ hinged-lid enclosure for wall, bulkhead, machine and desk mounting in challenging indoor and harsh outdoor environments. At launch, these enclosures were rated IP66, IP67 and IP69K (on request). They now offer IP68, allowing immersion in water to a depth of 47.24in for two hours.

The diecast aluminum hinged lid opens 100deg for easy component access. The lid can be specified with or without a membrane keypad recess. The lid screws and threaded inserts are A2 stainless steel for corrosion protection.

To quickly and easily fit the lid, the integrated hinge pin is pushed into place and secured with two M5 tamperproof Torx T25 screws. Then the lid is shut and locked down with two more Torx screws. All fixings are hidden beneath aluminum trims.

The enclosures are available in 10 sizes from 3.54 by 4.72 by 2.76in to 6.69 by 11.02 by 3.54in. Standard color is anthracite gray (RAL 7016) with matt silver powder-coated lid trims.
