NEMA 4/IP66 Dual Access wall mounted 19” cabinets

Hammond Manufacturing 6/1/2012

Dual Access Wall Mounted 19Designed for use in both industrial and office environments, the Eclipse Dual Access wall mounted cabinets from Hammond Manufacturing provide a rigid and strong enclosure for high-density LAN cabling and 19” patch panels as well as for any 19” electronic equipment. The unit consists of three sections: the heavy-duty wall mounting rear and base through which the cables enter the enclosure; the main body and a solid or window lockable front door. The body and the door are independently hinged, with 120° opening to give unrestricted access to both the front and rear of the mounted equipment. All sections are constructed from 14-gauge steel, finished in RAL 7035 light gray. Seamless poured-in-place gaskets provide protection against dust, oil and water to NEMA type 3R, 12, 4 and IP66, enabling the enclosures to be installed in challenging industrial environments or outside locations.

Ten sizes are available as standard, ranging from 16” high x 24” wide x 15” deep to 48” x 24” x 24”. Non-standard sizes can be produced to meet specific customer requirements. A pair of fixed 19” panel rails, tapped 10/32, are pre-installed at the front and additional optional mounting angles can be added at the rear of the body to support heavy equipment or provide a second patch breakout area from the main cabling. U heights range from 7U to 26U and the maximum static load ratings are 100 to 180 pounds depending on size.

Other optional accessories include rear inner mounting panel, a mounting foot kit, breathers, filter fans, thermostats and rain hoods. CAD drawings that simplify specifying factory modification and customization are downloadable from www.hammondmfg.com.
