RF Solutions IP68 rated enclosures for outdoor wireless remote control

RF Solutions is addressing outdoor applications that require wireless remote control - it has introduced new IP68 rated enclosures that provide an unmatched degree of protection against moisture ingress.

According to RF Solutions, the injected moulded ABS enclosures have been specifically designed to house a receiver module and an antenna. Three push-through areas on the underside of the enclosure provide access for power feed and other cabling and connectors.

The new enclosures can be fitted easily on an exterior wall, panel or door using lugs and fixing points incorporated into the moulding.

A 4mm wall thickness provides a high degree of impact resistance and makes the enclosures viable for use in the most difficult and demanding environments. The new units are designed for use in conjunction with RF Solutions' latest IP65-rated transmitter housing.

The receiver enclosure's integrated card guide and retention system allows for a wide range of RF Solutions PCBs to be accommodated meaning that many wireless communications can be addressed using a single enclosure design.

Overall dimensions of the new moulded plastic enclosures are 169 x 132 x 85mm (excluding the antenna).
