New Deltron enclosures: sealed and protected

DEM Manufacturing now offers waterproof EMI/RFI shielded aluminium enclosures

DEM Manufacturing has announced that its latest range of IP67 and IP68 aluminium enclosures has now been upgraded to include enhanced EMI and RFI protection.

The new Deltron 480C and 483C ranges of aluminium enclosures now have combined IP67/IP68 ratings and EMI/RFI protection, making these enclosures ideally suitable for the most demanding electrical and environmental conditions in marine, industrial, food preparation, transportation, leisure, military and aerospace. All are certified to BS EN 60529: 1992.

When using a conductive enclosure, the EMI/RFI screening achieved can be significantly impaired with the application of a non-conductive sealing mechanism. DEM Manufacturing has designed an EMI/RFI seal which maintains conductivity between the lid and box, and is essential to eliminate high frequency radiated emissions. This therefore allows EMI and RFI screening properties to be unaffected, whilst maintaining a watertight seal of up to 1 metre for 30 minutes (IP67), and depths of up to 5 metres for 1 hour (IP68). This means the enclosure is ideal for use in high humidity, underwater applications and applications subjected to heavy spray.

All of this adds up to enclosures manufactured from high grade materials and processes to match the stringent and increasing demands of today's industry.

DEM Manufacturing offers a range of die cast aluminium enclosures: plain and coated, flanged, sealed, IP65 and IP66, with a full ‘one stop’ solution for design, engineering finishing and box build. Also offered is a selection of ABS, polycarbonate IP65 enclosures. The Deltron 480C series offers 15 standard box sizes, whilst the Deltron 483C series consists of 9 sizes of flanged boxes. Sizes range from 60mm x 55mm x 31mm to 275 x 175 x 66mm  the largest range available from a European supplier.

Finance Director, Industrial Company
"We operate in a niche market sector where the reliability of our product in the field is absolutely critical. Our business is also project orientated and we found that we could not justify our overhead structure on an ongoing basis. We needed to outsource manufacturing and test to ensure our products were competitive but at the same time needed to find a manufacturer who could meet our quality requirements. CTL Manufacturing provided total solution."

Operations Manager, Aerospace Company
"Ensuring our manufacturing plant remained competitive was prohibitive on us developing new products, it was a straight choice between developing new products and investing in further plant or to subcontract manufacturing. CTL offered us the additional facility we needed. It was an easy decision and one of the best ones we have ever made.”

Procurement Manager, Medical Company

"We needed access to greater purchasing power in order to compete with our offshore competitors. We chose CTL because of their ability to access global pricing and strategic group deals".
