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 NEMA 4 TITAN computer enclosure by ITSENCLOSURES is ideal for any harsh shop floor, warehouse, factory, or loading dock. Intended for both indoors and outdoors, the computer enclosure is an all-in-one industrial workstation, which will protect a PC, monitor, printer, and electronics from dust, dirt, hose directed fluids, corrosive materials, and most weather conditions (rain, snow, sleet, ice). 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 […]

Computer Enclosures for a Hazardous Environment

Prior to installation, system designers – working in corrosive or hazardous environments – should properly research how to safely deploy electronics. Considerations for the manufacturing area’s classification (Class I, II & III) and division (Division I, II) for components (LCDs, touch screens, HMI, computers, and various other hardware) is crucial. A system designer may be […]

The Best NEMA 4X Computer Enclosure Features

Computer enclosures are often used in the pharmaceutical, food, and beverage industries to protect useful computers, monitors, printers, and keyboards. It is important to specify the correct computer enclosure prior to deploying electronics in a wash down environment. Food, beverage, and pharmaceutical facilities require extreme cleanliness and sanitary conditions. The protective requirement regulations for electronic […]

3 Considerations for Computer Enclosures

While performing an Internet image search, computer enclosures – from various companies – may look very similar. However, computer enclosures are not created equal! In a factory or manufacturing environment, a high-quality, industrial computer enclosure will protect vital electronic components better than subpar enclosure products. When a customer makes a computer enclosure decision based solely […]

Customizing Your Industrial Computer Enclosure

The term “custom” enclosure often gets a poor reputation for being more expensive than standard units and having excessive lead times. However, this is not always the case. When researching the best industrial computer enclosure for the job, it is critical to choose an enclosure provider which utilizes off-the-shelf items to customize a solution that […]

Avoid Computer Enclosure Pitfalls with Planning

If the proper planning is executed from the beginning of the process, finding the best computer enclosure does not have to be overwhelming. Setting aside time for adequate research is the best course of action and will pay off in the long run. Keep in mind: not every enclosure company has the same product for […]
