Aluminum enclosure provides EMI/RFI protection

Bud Industries' ANS Series EMI/RFI waterproof enclosure has a double-channel sealing system to ensure shielding and watertight capabilities.

Bud Industries Inc. has announced a die-cast aluminum enclosure that provides EMI/RFI protection and an IP67/NEMA 4X waterproof seal. Bud's new ANS Series EMI/RFI waterproof enclosure has a double-channel sealing system that reportedly enables breakthroughs in shielding and watertightness.

The ANS Series 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, reliably seals out dust and moisture. This seal is enhanced by numerous screws outside the sealing area that assure a uniformly tight seal and help the enclosure meet the IP67 standard, according to Bud Industries.

Bud's new enclosure reportedly makes EMI/RFI protection available 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 light in weight, according to the Bud Industries.
