Pelican Protector™ cases have evolved over the years to accommodate the needs of electronic engineers and their OEM projects. Injection molding provides a reliable, durable, ready-to-ship enclosure with consistent dimensions. The co-polymer material can be machined and drilled, and also files and sands well.
These properties make the Pelican Protector™ Case well suited for customization such as mounting bulkhead connectors, while maintaining a clean, professional appearance. Attaching equipment to the interior is equally simple by use of typical fasteners and mounting hardware. The hardware can be made water-tight by use of small o-rings, rubber washers or silicone.
PANEL FRAME INSERTS
Panel frames allow the simple attachment of an interface panel flush with the rim of the case. The depth of the lid allows switches, buttons, connectors and ports to stand up from the panel face.
We provide the mounting bracket, fasteners and o-ring which install beneath the
panel and fit against tops molded inside the case walls. A polymer o-ring
seals the panel so the case remains watertight, even with the lid open.
Pre-drilled holes and stainless steel screws make fabricating a custom case
faster, stronger and more accurate.
The interior of the lid is also commonly used to attach accessories such as a wiring race, device holster or Pelican’s optional lid organizer sets. Select larger cases offer mounting bosses inside the lid for use with screw fasteners.
RECOMMENDED ADHESIVES FOR PELICAN PROTECTOR™ CASES
3M Products - Scotch Weld DP8005 or DP 8010 can be used when adhering custom parts such as Peli Quick™ Mounts in a Pelican Protector™ Case.
Pelican Cases are molded from Polypropylene (PP) and for best results, should be adhered to similar material. While Peli Quick Mounts are molded of ABS, you should achieve satisfactory results if the mounts are allowed to cure for 24 hours before attaching elements such as an interface panel.
