Versatility, the main principle behind the EH series, is also carried over to the cover design. The open terminal compartment provides flexibility for PCB connection technology. Three cover versions are available for individual PCB connections. Choose between covers with terminal compartment open on one or both sides or a closed cover.

Various shapes of the EH housing

A new definition of flexibility – with seven overall widths, two heights, and three cover versions, you can create modular device systems with a uniform design. Choose the perfect layout for your solution from housing widths ranging from 22.5 to 90 mm and housing heights ranging from 54 to 110.5 mm.

EH housing with individually alignable printed circuit boards

Due to the flexible housing design, the PCBs can be aligned horizontally, frontally, or even orthogonally to the device front. This provides you with full flexibility in device development.

Various attachment options for EH series housings

Use DIN rail or wall mounting for an application-specific device attachment. The base latch is designed for mounting on the standard DIN rail NS 35/7.5.

Optical signal displays

The HS LC light guides for electronics housings are available in a variety of designs and are perfectly matched to the housings. The light guides are also resistant to ESD.

The press pins enable easy mounting on the PCB. We offer the necessary processing of your electronics housings as an optional service.

Technical principles of electronics housings Solutions for DIN rail applications

Electronics housings are an elementary part of a device. They determine its appearance and protect the electronics from external influences. In addition, they enable assembly in superordinate units. Device manufacturers must therefore pay attention to many details, and not only in the design, but also in the choice of housing when it comes to materials and quality testing. This brochure provides you with all the details.
