Moulded in ABS HB, ABS UL 94 V-0, or polycarbonate the options extend from handheld enclosures, remote control enclosures, wall mount enclosures, flanged enclosures, clear lid enclosures, hinged lid enclosures, cabinet enclosures, desktop enclosures, potting box enclosures, instrument enclosures, power supply enclosures etc.

We will help you find the enclosure design, size and style most suited to your application. Many of our plastic enclosures are moulded with recessed areas for membrane keypads, as well as battery compartments and PCB mounts and guides for components. Accessories for plastic enclosures include cable glands, wall mounting brackets or belt clips and protective rubber sleeves. IP65, IP66 and IP67 rated plastic enclosures are available across the ranges. Plastic enclosures can be easily customised with cut-outs.

The design and functionality of the products we offer reflect the latest enclosure needs in the industry. And we can customise your enclosure to your exact requirements with holes and apertures, as well as printing or laser etching.

In addition, our extensive range of accessories include cable glands, wall mounting options, belt clips, protective boots for enclosures used in rugged environments

IP Rated Enclosures

Evatron supply a wide range of IP rated enclosures including IP65, IP66, IP67 and IP68.

IP Rating or Ingress Protection is the term used to determine the degree of protection an object achieves from the intrusion of solid objects and liquids. It is used commonly in our industry to clarify the capabilities of our enclosures rather than using vague terminology such as “dust proof” and “waterproof”. The codes are made up using a combination of two numbers, the first being the ingress protection against solid objects and the second indicates ingress protection against liquids e.g IP65. The information below should help provide clarification.

IP Rated Enclosures

First number – Intrusion against solids

0 No Ingress Protection
1 Protected against solid objects up to 50 mm e.g accidental touch by hands.
2 Protected against solid objects up to 12 mm e.g fingers.
3 Protected against solid objects over 2.5 mm such as tools and small wires.
4 Protected against solid objects over 1 mm such as tools and small wires
5 Protected against dust – limited ingress permitted (no harmful deposit)
6 Totally protected against dust.

Second Number – Intrusion against liquids

0 No Ingress protection.
1 Protected against vertically falling drops of water.
2 Protected against direct sprays of water up to 15° from the vertical.
3 Protected against sprays up to 60° from vertical.
4 Protected against water sprays from all directions-limited ingress permitted.
5 Protected against low-pressure water jets from all directions-limited ingress permitted.
6 Protected against strong jets of water e.g for use on ship decks-limited ingress permitted.
7 Protected against the effects of immersion between 15cm and 1m.
8 Protected against long periods of immersion under pressure.

The application of your product will determine the level of IP rating required and designers of outdoor electronic housing units will specify a minimum IP rating of IP65, IP66, IP67 or possibly IP68 depending on the application.
