Bud Industries has launched its DCH Series of dual-compartment IP65-rated electronics enclosures. According to the company, the DCH enclosures are unique in that the upper compartment has an easily-removable, transparent cover that allows users to view meters and other indicators and to easily access system components that may require frequent maintenance. The lower compartment is designed to protect delicate components and contain electrical components that could pose a touch hazard, including power supplies, batteries, and other components not requiring frequent access.

The DCH enclosures are made from high-impact ABS plastic. There are five models in the series ranging in size from 6.34-in. H x 6.54-in. W x 3.66-in. D to 11.06-in. H x 11.65-in. W x 6.22-in. D.

There are two cover styles: a screw-on cover designed to meet the requirements of IP65 and a hinged cover designed for applications that require frequent access. Both are sealed with a durable and oil-resistant silicone sponge gasket. The transparent cover is made from blue-tinted polycarbonate plastic rated to UL 94-HB (higher flammability ratings available upon request).

Other key features include: easy-to-remove knockouts on bottom side to accommodate conduit fittings or cable glands; printed-circuit board guides in the upper compartment; built-in DIN-rail mounting clips for easy mounting. The new enclosures are available now from stock. Pricing in quantity starts as low as $17.75. Learn more about Bud Industries' DCH Series of IP65 enclosures.
