Aluminium housing for use in harsh outdoor environmentsPhoenix Contact’s new HC-ALU aluminium housing complements their existing range of rugged housing products for industrial use. This aluminium profile is horizontally split for easy assembly of components and fully fitted PCBs.

The front surface has a 2mm recess for flush-fit insertion of labels or membrane keyboards. The basic profile length is adjustable, allowing users to precisely adapt the housing size to the application at hand. The IP 65-compliant housing is built for an operating temperature range of -40degC to +85degC. EMC protection is attained thanks to a fully closed profile design together with circumferential contacting of the side element. Special EMC seals are available for applications requiring maximum attenuation levels.

Thanks to its trapezoidal cross-section, the housing is suitable for use with hand-held devices for mobile data capture or wireless communication. It also comes in a wall-mount or tabletop version for stationary display devices. Phoenix Contact accessories, such as wall mounting brackets, individual design features, labelling, membrane keyboards, or harmonised connector technology, complete the portfolio.
