Enclosures, Cables and Connectors


Enclosures

Materials available:

ABS plasic

Polycarbonate

Fiberglass

Stainless Steel

Aluminum

Enclosures

  • Needs to withstand hostile environments-rain, snow, saltwater blowing debris.

  • Needs a full hinge and a positive latching system.

  • Nema type 4 or 4X


Enclosures cables and connectors

ABS Plastic: Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Light

  • Easily modified by machine shop

  • Nonconductive

  • Brittle

  • Not UV resistant – needs paint

  • No Hinged Units


Enclosures cables and connectors

Polycarbonate: Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Light

  • Easily modified by machine shop

  • Fairly durable

  • More UV resistant than ABS plastic

  • Nonconductive

  • Black or clear color

  • Still needs to be painted for UV resistance

  • No Hinged Units


Enclosures cables and connectors

Fiberglass: Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Lightest

  • Easily modified by machine shop

  • More durable than Polycarbonate

  • Mostly UV resistant

  • Nonconductive

  • Best R factor

  • Most inexpensive

  • Pain to machine (dust)

  • Will break down over long time (years) if not painted


Enclosures cables and connectors

Stainless Steel: Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Most durable of all materials (will last forever)

  • Pain to machine (hard material)

  • Most heavy

  • Conducts heat/cold/electricity

  • Most expensive


Enclosures cables and connectors

Aluminum: Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Very durable (will last forever)

  • Easy to machine

  • Expensive

  • Heavy

  • Conducts heat/cold/electricity

  • Needs coating

  • 2nd most expensive
