Specifying custom enclosures just got easier, says Rolec
There are now two ways to customise enclosures for electronics, announces Rolec. The industrial enclosure manufacture says it has made specifying customised housings quicker, easier and more cost effective.
Rolec has an established history in customising its standard fixed size enclosures to create housings that are PCB-ready to specifications. Rolec offers this customising service for diecast aluminium, stainless steel, glass reinforced plastic (GRP) and plastic enclosures.
All enclosures are IP rated; most of them to IP 66, IP 67 and/or IP 69K, to cope with challenging conditions in heavy industrial, marine and offshore environments. Many models offer “lid closed” installation to protect the seals and electronics. Some have clip-on trims to hide the lid screws, further enhancing the aesthetics.
Models in this range include aluCase (premium enclosures), aluClic (with click-fit mounting), aluDisc (unique round housings), aluPlus (in industry-standard sizes), aluNorm (multi-variable, with space saving, single channel fixings), conForm (with built-in EMC shielding) and aluTwin (dual chamber) models.
The other customisation option targets the rapidly growing market for tough but elegant human machine interface (HMI) panel enclosures for process automation, machine control, industry 4.0, industrial IoT and smart factory applications. The enclosures can be manufactured to any customer specified size up to 800 x 800mm, in a range of depths and with various rear door options (including a no-door option). They have virtually edgeless, flush-mounting front plates.
These HMI enclosures are sealed to IP 65 and manufactured from aluminium profiles with a choice of aluminium or glass front panels. Models include multiPanel (advanced premium command enclosures), profiPanel (with optional keyboard and mouse trays) and profiPanel Standard (cost-effective, four standard plan sizes from 400 x 400mm to 650 x 520mm and all 90mm deep). The enclosures can be mounted on Rolec suspension arms, such as the profIPlus 50 and 70 ranges.
Both options include comprehensive modification services, i.e. CNC machining, painting, powder coating, silk-screen and digital printing, engraving, laser processing, EMC shielding, special materials, membrane keypads, display windows and full assembly.
