  • Protecting Class 1 Areas with NEMA Enclosures

    Many factories complete delicate manufacturing processes in harsh environments. Many manufacturing companies use computer-controlled equipment to manufacturer products and materials in chemically-charged environments and caustic environments. Under normal circumstances, any electronic equipment used in these environments would quickly corrode the electronic devices, rendering them useless. Replacing corroded machinery and electronic equipment every time the equipment corroded would be a huge expense for most factories. That is why most companies use a NEMA 7 enclosure in caustic environments to keep electronics items safe. NEMA 7 enclosures are designed to protect electronics...

  • Keep It Safe

    Computers, though because of their mass production and consequent reduction in price, are still valuable pieces of equipment. With any expensive piece of electronics, people are concerned with their safety and theft is a worry. Many businesses now use computer enclosures to keep their computers and computer monitors safe yet accessible. Computer enclosures are usually constructed of wood or metal, and are basically a small cabinet into which the computer and monitor are placed. Additionally, the monitor will often be anchored to the cabinet in some way to add further...

  • Computer Enclosures Make Industrial Environments Computer-Friendly

    It's no secret that computers are sensitive devices. After all, they are complexes of advanced components, some of which involve complicated moving parts, that all perform in tandem to perform advanced functions for their users. In theory, an enclosure is not an essential component in the operation of a computer. They don't serve any computational purposes, they don't connect the computer's components to a power source it seems like it could be argued that a computer's enclosure is its least significant part. However, as is the case with many different...

Industry Information

Computer Enclosures

Computer enclosures are protective materials used to protect computer components from contact with dust and other contaminants as well as accidental impact. As computer technology develops, and as computers become more portable, engineers must develop new ways to protect computers from the range of threats they face. Computers are found in homes, offices, factory floors, police cars, spacecraft and even in peoples’ pockets.

When used in homes, computers face the challenges of dust accumulation, accidental exposure to liquids or moisture and accidental impact. In industrial settings, computers are exposed to similar hazards but to a greater extent. Especially in heavy manufacturing settings, computer enclosures must be able to protect sensitive components from flying or settling debris, inhospitable temperatures and exposure to moving machinery and workers. Computers mounted in vehicles must be resistant to constant vibrations and impact, so their enclosures can be designed to include elaborate suspension systems. Because there are so many different varieties of computers, a wide variety of enclosure configurations exist to accommodate that variety. Laptop computers, for example, must be designed with materials that are light enough to prevent the computer from becoming cumbersome but sturdy enough to protect the computer.

Computer enclosures are made out of a range of materials; aluminum and stainless steel are commonly used in metal enclosures, especially in computer models in which weight and portability are not important considerations. Most laptops are made of a durable plastic like ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), though some are made from thin, lightweight metals. A computer enclosure’s suitability for a given application is determined by standards setting organizations, one of the most prominent of which is the National Electronics Manufacturers Association (NEMA). NEMA gives ratings to configurations that professionals can use to determine whether or not an enclosure is suitable for a given application. For example, NEMA enclosure types 1, 2, 12, 12K and 13 are rated for indoor uses in which exposure to hazards like impact and contaminants is not likely. They also issue ratings for enclosures rated for low-hazardous outdoor use, high-hazard indoor use, and high-hazard indoor or outdoor use. The International Electrotechnical Commission also issues ratings for computer enclosure based on their expected performance in a range of contexts. Custom enclosures are built by hobbyists for personal use and by professionals for use in unusual applications; computers designed for use in laboratories must often be developed to function in less than hospitable environments. In those and other unusual cases, enclosures can be built to resist interference and other harmful environmental presences.
