NEMA 4X Computer Enclosures in Food Processing

If you have ever watched the popular Food Network TV shows “Food Factory” and “Unwrapped” or Discovery Channel’s “How It’s Made,” you were probably amazed at the intricate processes involved in producing food products, like biscuits, cotton candy, chocolate mints, or caramel apples. The ‘best practices’ procedure that goes into making a simple snack or […]

Industrial Keyboards for Enclosures

When working in an industrial environment, computers and keyboards are critical tools on the factory floor. However, not all keyboards can survive in a harsh, wet factory. Depending on the hazards encountered (dust, dirt, grease, corrosive materials, and liquids), an industrial keyboard is a great investment. The most significant aspect for consideration when purchasing a […]

NEMA 4X Computer Enclosure Door Benefits

During the manufacturing or assembly process, the food/beverage and pharmaceutical industries must adhere to strict regulations regarding product safety. Contamination must be avoided at all costs. Industrial plants and factories must ensure that all process machinery and equipment, including heavy-duty computer enclosures, are regularly cleaned (usually a sanitizing washdown) and contaminant-free. The decontaminating washdown procedure […]

Why Manufacturing Facilities Need Industrial Enclosures

On a factory or manufacturing floor, computers, monitors, printers, and peripheral devices are necessary to perform essential daily tasks, like order entry or ticketing. Important electronic equipment demands security and protection from extreme heat (or cold), falling dirt, dust, and splashing fluids. NEMA rated industrial enclosures or cabinets are the perfect solution to safeguard the […]

Using a Touchscreen with a Computer Enclosure

Using an interactive touchscreen – on a production floor – is quickly becoming the norm in factory environments. A touchscreen can eliminate the need for an industrial keyboard and mouse. For manufacturing users, it creates an efficient source for inputting data or keeping track of inventory. Can a touchscreen be used in a NEMA rated […]

The Importance of Thermal Management Maintenance

When deploying computer, rack, monitor, or printer enclosures in a factory or industrial setting, thermal management (air conditioners, filtered fan systems, heat exchangers, etc.) should be considered to exponentially prolong the life of the chosen electronics. Once thermal management is installed on (or in) the enclosure, it is important to check and maintain the system […]

Creating the Perfect NEMA 4 TITAN Computer Enclosure

The […]

Filtered Fan System Tips for Computer Enclosures

When deploying computer enclosures in a harsh and hot environment, a filtered fan system (or thermal management) consideration should be at the top of the project “to-do list.” Without a doubt, electronics will generate heat on the inside of a computer enclosure. The heat will need to be abated or it will be harmful to […]

Configuring a Climate Controlled Rack Enclosure

A reliable, heavy-duty rack enclosure will keep electronics safe from harmful elements, while maintaining security. When searching online for the best rack enclosure solution, it is critical to list all of the electronics to be housed inside of the rack enclosure. The end user must determine how many ‘U’ (rack mount space; 1 rack unit is 1.75 […]
