X-series becomes CamdenBoss’ toughest enclosure range

P1855 X-series marketing imageCamdenBoss has extended its range of robust enclosure options with the new X-Series. The X8, X7 and X6 series are now CamdenBoss’ most robust electrical enclosures with IK09 impact resistance rating. Together with IP66/67 class sealing, the X-series is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications such as control panels, junction boxes and distribution boards.

Each series is available in either polycarbonate or ABS. Polycarbonate is UV-light resistant, when exposed to the sun, the enclosure is less likely to appear faded and worn over time. ABS is a cost effective option for indoor use without compromising on quality. Both polycarbonate and ABS have identical quality ratings.

The firm says the design of  its X8 series is particularly noteworthy; Available in 16 sizes, the enclosure is fitted with a hinged lid. This type of lid provides easy access into the enclosure, without removing any screws. The lid latches can be fastened securely with a padlock or, for increased security, the lock accessory can be added. For control panels, the dual door allows direct access to the control panel without struggling with screws or latches. The dual door is perfect for utilising CamdenBoss’ 22mm pushbutton switches and E-stops, which can be mounted within the enclosure.For DIN Rail modules, the X8 series can have inspection windows CNC machined in-house to a customer’s individual specification for a fully bespoke solution. 

The X7 series features 12 different sizes with rigid corners, the series embodies strength and is strong enough to deal with any heavy knock, even a forklift clash. Featuring brass inserts, they can be accessorised with PCB and other component mount options such as steel mounting plates and for keeping it cool against the heat, two sizes of vents are available in polycarbonate and ABS.

Hassle-free enclosure knockouts are an important feature of the X6 series, these are industry-sized and provide effortless entries for cables. There are 10 sizes available in this series, each enclosure is fully customisable with steel mounting plates, wall/surfaces mounting brackets and quick release screws. The series also features polarised lids, with a choice of solid grey or transparent.

LCL Electronics offers complete service

LCL Electronics preview edit_tmbLCL Electronics offers turnkey manufacturing, including design and prototype, small batch assembly, pre-production and medium-large volumes of PCBs, product build and cable harnessing.

The company is growing and diversifying into new markets such as leisure, education, energy, food processing and entertainment. It still operates in more traditional markets, including fire safety, gaming, automotive, audio and medical, where its quality and reliability is proven.

LEDs are still proving strong in electronics production. As they become smaller and more sophisticated, so the production and technology used needs to adapt, something that the experienced manufacturer has the skills, equipment and technology to do.

It claims to have the ability to achieve higher yields than other contract manufacturers, coupled with a technical team with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the LED assembly and production process.

Located at the heart of the country, in the Midlands, the company can help customers from the start of an initial product design through to testing and delivery, on-time and to budget. In addition, its global purchasing expertise can drive down component cost, which coupled with its technical capabilities, can lead to a reduction in time and cost.

Working to BSI ISO 9001:2008 accreditations and producing RoHS-compliant products, manufacturing and production benefits include reduced operating costs, freeing up of internal resources, allowing for fewer vendors to manage, reducing inventory and accelerating time-to-market.

Problem solving sparks innovation

ETPS reviewBy engineering programmable power supplies and test systems, ETPS says it provides problem solving skills to spark innovation to leading technology brands.

At the show the company launched the Lab-Auto DC power supply. In-built auto-ranging means a greater number of voltage and current combinations are possible within the unit’s nominal power rating. Therefore several conventional DC sources can often be replaced with just one system, saving both cost and bench space, says the company.

Constant voltage, current and power modes are provided as standard. Each unit has a programmable internal resistance range, making it suitable for simulating the output of energy storage devices in test rigs.

Up to 8000 sets of programmed memories for V, A, W and time values can be stored within the internal memory. This allows common test routines to be executed at the touch of a button.

Single units are available with outputs up to 15kW. Up to 10 power supplies can be combined in parallel to create high power systems up to 150kW.
