New enclosure for sensor nodes
We are now offering sensor nodes with extruded aluminium enclosure.
Enclosure material is anodized extruded Aluminum
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish (anodizing.org).
Extrusion is defined as the process of shaping material, such as aluminum, by forcing it to flow through a shaped opening in a die. Extruded material emerges as an elongated piece with the same profile as the die opening (bonnellaluminum.com).
Pics below show a wireless temperature sensor with an external probe. The extruded aluminium enclosure shown is 94mm x 83mm x 30mm in size. The two end-plates have 4 screws each. We have drilled holes in the end plates for the panel mount U.Fl to SMA RF cable assembly and two LEDs. The opposite end plate has a hole for the sensor cable. This enclosure is not IP rated.
Since the material is a metal, this enclosure is not suitable for applications requiring an internal antenna.
