Non-corrosive cabinets are now available from Foremost Electronics
Standard plastic enclosures for the electrical and electronics industries from Fibox are now available from distributor, Foremost Electronics.
“We are very pleased to introduce our latest supplier with the launch of an exceptional new product,” says Alan Cook, managing director of Foremost Electronics. “The new ARCA cabinet range provides control systems with ultimate protection in demanding environments.”
The cabinets are available in 14 sizes form 300 x 200 x 150mm to 600 x 800 x 300mm. They can be customised during system manufacture or on site, with no specialist tools required, leaving no possibility of rust on the worked surface afterwards, says the company. They are manufactured in high grade polycarbonate material and are non-corrosive, making them suitable for use in extremely harsh and demanding environments. They are claimed to provide a long lifetime and excellent security. The UV stabilised polycarbonate material ensures high performance in outdoor installations, is chemical-resistant and has a raw material flammability rating to UL 94-5VA
The range is lightweight, making them easy to transport and install. They meet the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC up to 1,500V DC, and have a wide operating temperature from -40 to +80°C (+120°C short term).
The robust design meets IP66 to protect from water ingress providing peace of mind in wet and dusty environments, offers high impact resistance and is able to withstand contact up to IK 10. The cabinets protect against vandalism and are fitted with a patent-pending strong hinge designed to withstand regular door opening to 120° and the fitting of door mounted components. Multiple locking options are available.
A patent-pending lockable inner door requires no tools for mounting. There is also a patent-pending, quick to mount and easy-to-use DIN-rail frame set, with equipment mounting pods on the base, cover and four base sides, variable depth option for internal plates and a range of accessories, such as mounting plates, corner adjustment set, window cover, galvanised steel inner door set, DIN-rail frame set, support bar set for DIN-rail, pole mounting set, wall mounting lugs set, rain/snow hood and locking options.
