Optional IP69K sealing for diecast aluminium enclosures
ROLEC has launched IP 69K versions of three of its most popular diecast aluminum enclosures for electronics equipment: aluCASE, aluDISC and aluCLIC. The move has been prompted by increased demand from companies designing and manufacturing equipment for food processing, pharmaceutical and agricultural applications.
Equipment used in food, pharma and farming must be able to withstand frequent washing down using high pressure, high temperature cleaners.
ROLEC’s aluCASE, aluDISC and aluCLIC metal enclosures have previously been available with IP 67 protection. Now they can be specified with an IP 69K rating on demand.
IP 67 enclosures must be able to withstand immersion in one metre of water for 30 minutes.
IP 69K electronic enclosures must be capable of withstanding 80°C water at a pressure of 80–100 bar and a flow rate of 14-16 litres/minute. The spray nozzle is held 10 to 15 cm from the box at angles of 0, 30, 60 and 90 degrees for 30 seconds each. The test device sits on a turntable that rotates once every 12 seconds.
The aluCASE, aluDISC and aluCLIC ranges are three of ROLEC’s most versatile enclosures for industry:
- aluCASE – high quality wall mounted industrial enclosures with integrated lid straps. Fixings are concealed under clip-on trims. These enclosures can be fitted while sealed shut, protecting the electronics inside. Available in a wide range of sizes. Options include transparent lids and also key locks.
- aluDISC – the world’s first round aluminum enclosures, designed to integrate aesthetically with pipes and other industrial equipment. Now available in four standard sizes. Applications include process control, monitoring, detection and flow metering. Can be mounted to a wall or machine while still assembled. Options include a hinged lid.
- aluCLIC – click-to-fit electronic enclosures for rapid installation and exchange. Can be installed with the lid closed to safeguard the electronics inside. No visible fixings, they are all concealed beneath the enclosure.
ROLEC also produces ranges of IP 66 and IP 65 boxes to suit a broad spectrum of industrial electronics applications. And although ROLEC is synonymous with metal housings, the company also designs and manufactures ranges of glass reinforced polyester and plastic enclosures.View IP69K range >>
