NEMA-Rated SN Series Enclosures Now Available Through Mouser Electronics

Mouser Electronics now distributing Bud Industries' NEMA-rated SN Series of Enclosures

Mansfield, Texas, USA – November 29, 2006 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the fastest growing catalog distributor in the electronics industry, today announced the newest addition to Bud Industries' complete line of environmentally-sealed enclosures – the NEMA-rated SN Series of sheet-metal boxes – is now available for purchase.

The SN Series has continuous welded seams and a hinged cover that clamps to the base with stainless steel screws and brackets for a water-tight seal. The series is ideal for use in a broad range of applications, including power supplies and industrial controls in wash-down, marine, outdoor or dirty environments.

These enclosures meet NEMA 1, 2, 4, 4x, 12, 13, and IP65 ratings and made from 14 gauge steel, making them more rugged than plastic NEMA boxes and have a nicer appearance than die-cast aluminum boxes. The SN Series comes standard in ten sizes, but can be easily customize colors, hole cuts, and gasketing in reasonable quantities. The boxes can also be wall- and panel-mounted or free-standing.

“Mouser is pleased to add another new product from Bud Industries' broad line of top-rated enclosures,” according to Barry McConnell, Mouser's Vice President of Product Marketing, “which is in keeping with our business model of introducing the newest, most innovative products to the engineering community more rapidly than any other distributor. Our goal is to give customers a time-to-market advantage they can't get anywhere else.

”Bud Industries is extremely pleased with Mouser's performance of delivering all our products to their unique customer base,” said Blair Haas, Bud President. “We expect our new NEMA-rated SN Series will be well-received and deliver further penetration of our products into the engineering marketplace.”

Mouser's ability to rapidly introduce the newest products and the latest technologies to the engineering community is due to its unique catalog and first-class website. The company is the only distributor to publish a new 1,800+ page print catalog every 90 days and has a yearly circulation of one million, with quarterly mailings of 250,000. In addition, its website is updated daily and has over 720,000 products available for online purchase 24 hours every day. Mouser.com also provides more than 490,000 downloadable data sheets, over 1.5 million cross-references, and global shipments to over 170 countries.
