Cleanliness and NEMA 4X Enclosures

When it comes to maintaining sanitary equipment in the food and beverage industry, operators should be proactive about the overall cleanliness of their facility. In 2011, President Barack Obama signed into law the biggest overhaul of American food safety laws since the 1930s. “The legislation gives the federal Food and Drug Administration the authority to […]

Deploying Computer Enclosures Outdoors

When deploying computer enclosures in outdoor environments, the installation will present a unique set of challenges. The risk of equipment failure requires computer equipment to withstand solar heat, rain, snow, sleet, and extreme temperatures. In addition to environmental concerns, one must consider the technical aspects involved in installing electronics in the outdoors. To be effective, the internal […]

Cooling for NEMA 4X Enclosures

When deploying enclosures in an environment with extreme temperatures, thermal management is critical. It is necessary for maintaining the optimum performance of electronics and for keeping a computer system protected from elevated levels of heat. Since a NEMA 4X enclosure requires a watertight seal, a unique set of challenges must be overcome when installing a […]

Enclosures in a Humid Environment

Can electronics survive without enclosures in a humid environment? In many harsh, manufacturing settings, printers, computers, monitors, and electrical equipment are housed in industrial computer enclosures that are designed to protect against severe, exterior environments (humidity, water, dirt, dust). However, even in a NEMA rated enclosure, liquid can enter the enclosure under a variety of […]

Types of Enclosure Materials

Industrial enclosures for computers, printers, and electronics come in a variety of colors, sizes, and materials. When searching for the best fitting enclosure for a specific environment, it is paramount to consider what material the enclosure will be fabricated out of and how it will perform under severe conditions. A buyer or end user should […]

Keeping Electronics Cool Inside a Computer Enclosure

When storing electronics in a computer, monitor, printer, or rack enclosure, proper cooling is necessary to increase the overall life of the electronics. It comes as no surprise that heat can damage electronics. As a rule of thumb, the life expectancy of electronics is cut in half for every 18°F in which they operate above […]

Selecting an Electrical Enclosure – Items to Consider

When purchasing a heavy-duty electrical enclosure, performing the proper research will ensure that the installed electronics will be protected for many years. The wrong solution can cause critical components to overheat, contaminants (dust, dirt, fibers, lint) to enter the inside of the enclosure, and electronics to fail. In the long run, these issues will hemorrhage […]
