Bud Industries has announced a die-cast aluminum enclosure that provides desirable EMI/RFI protection and an IP67/NEMA 4X waterproof seal. The ANS Series’ double-channel sealing system is asserted to offer breakthroughs in shielding and watertightness. The enclosure uses a continuous EMI/RFI gasket around the entire perimeter of the box to provide a high level of protection. A second gasket, made of long-lasting, one-piece silicone, seals out dust and moisture. This seal includes numerous screws outside the sealing area that assure a uniformly tight seal and help the enclosure meet the IP67 standard (submersible up to 30 minutes). The new enclosure is suitable for washdown and outdoor applications including solar, medical, military, avionics, industrial and instrumentation systems. The Bud ANS Series enclosure is made from #ADC-12 aluminum using thick wall (0.098 inch, 2.5 mm) construction that provides strength and rigidity for heavy duty applications yet is lighter weight and lower cost than stainless steel enclosures.
