Bud Plastic Enclosures, It’s All in Your Hand

Published on: March 19, 2019 by Blair Haas

In my last blog, I noted how many plastic enclosures we have in our line. Many people think of us only as steel or aluminum electronic enclosure suppliers, but we are much more than that. In this blog, I will continue to focus on plastic enclosures for general use. That is, these enclosures are not rated and so are not expressly for hazardous or wet environments. Today, the plastic enclosure of choice is our hand held series, the HP. These versatile products have been in our line for years and have been popular from day one. They come in three styles, each providing distinct advantages and sizes. All are made in durable ABS plastic with a UL94-HB rating.

Bud’s HP hand held series offers a great combination of flexibility and price

Style 1 is perfect for those looking for a smaller enclosure (2.6 x 2.6 x 1. 1). It is a two piece construction with mounting bosses in the base and holes for either sealing the box with screws or using out optional belt clip.

Style 2 is a clam-shell construction with removable front and rear panels. Available in 5 sizes, it has an optional IR panel and also works with our belt clip or our battery holders. It also has mounting bosses to easily install your pcb. The sizes range from 2.6 x 2.6 x 1.1 to 5.6 x 2.6. x 1.1.

Style 3 is made from a similar construction but includes a battery compartment. The accessories listed above will work with this unit as well. The 5 sizes in this series range from 3.62 x 2.6 x 0.85 to 5.5 x 2.6 x 1.1”

All three styles are easily modified as a part of Bud’s industry leading 5-6 day modification program as well as being perfect for our digital printing capabilities. All are in stock in Bud’s distribution network and are easy to locate by using our check stock and price web feature on the website.
