  • Keep Outdoor Equipment Safe with Electronic Enclosures

    Electrical enclosures were designed for two reasons. First, the enclosures are designed to keep unauthorized users from touching the equipment, either breaking it or harming themselves. Second, the enclosures are designed to keep delicate electrical equipment safe from snow, wind, rain, dew, and other contaminants. Nearly all outdoor electronic items use an electrical enclosure to keep the internal components of the machine safe. The following is a brief list of some of the common places you can find an electrical enclosure throughout the world: Outdoor gates: Gates require electronic parts...

  • Electronics Cooling from the Inside Out

    Electronic cabinets, or electronic enclosures, safely house electronics equipment inside a case for indoor or outdoor use. These units have a variety of uses, such as for housing the electrical components of a stop light, or housing the internal elements of a computer or other electronic equipment. The cabinets help protect the electronic components from weather, human tampering, and dust. Most electronic enclosures require additional cooling pieces for the electronic items inside the box. If the electronic items get overheated, they can short out and cause problems with the unit....

  • Electronic Enclosures, Preventing Electrical Boxes from Squirt Guns

    When I was a kid I simply loved squirt gun fights. All the kids in my old neighborhood would get together and split up into teams. Then we would run around the neighborhood trying to find and squirt each other. Certain houses would be designated refilling hubs but we had to be careful to refill before the other team got to us. Squirt guns were preferred over water balloons because they don't leave a mess that requires cleaning up after. Although the occasional balloon grenade was certainly worth it. I...

  • Electrical Cabinets House and Protect Sensetive Electronics

    If you've ever seen the inside of a complex electronic cabinet, you understand immediately why the enclosed electronic components have to be enclosed. Electrical cabinets keep their contents safe from nearby hazards. They are employed in all kinds of contexts homes, places of business, factories, warehouses. Each of these contexts merits the use of electronic cabinets in different ways. Each place requires access to electricity. Each place has varying levels and types of needs for electricity.

Industry Information

Electrical Cabinets

Electrical cabinets are boxes that protect electronic assemblies from dust, water and accidental contact. Also known as electrical enclosures, these cabinets house electrical conduits, connections and switches as well as other integral components of a circuit. Electrical cabinets are rectangular boxes that range from about half a foot to over 5 feet tall in varying depths and widths.

Electrical cabinets are typically made out of aluminum or stainless steel, though plastics such as polycarbonate polystyrene or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) are options as well. Tall cabinets may require a door or body stiffener for strength. Electrical cabinets are usually found in the lower levels or utility rooms of buildings and residences but can be found on street corners or partially hidden by landscaping in a park, for example. They are also widely used in practically every industry, protecting circuit breakers, operations switches and connections that would otherwise be exposed. Outdoor cabinets can be certified to withstand dirt, wind, rain, sleet, snow and ice formation on the enclosure's exterior in addition to surviving earthquakes and tornadoes. Cabinets used indoors must be tough as well and are usually dust and watertight. When used in a meat or dairy plant, for example, the lines are routinely washed down on a daily basis, and any water that enters the enclosure would grow bacteria and begin to rust the cabinet and electrical components. In chemical or finishing plants the cabinets may encounter corrosive or hazardous materials that other enclosures could not withstand.

The cabinets are generally made from cold rolled steel with continuously welded seams. After receiving a finish such as a powder coating, the knockouts, doors and handles are added. Accessories such as shelves or drawers are optional but can be useful, depending on the application. Warning labels and locking mechanisms deter vandalism and tampering. Some cabinets stand on the floor while smaller models have mounting holes in the back for fasteners to directly mount the enclosure to the wall; other cabinets have external mounting feet for a complete seal and maximum protection from contaminants. Electrical cabinets are certified and rated by NEMA, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, the IP Code (International Protection Rating) and by UL, the Underwriters Laboratories. Requirements and standards help keep workers and technicians safe besides effectively communicating the specifications of electrical cabinets to interested buyers. For example, a cabinet with a NEMA Type 1 certification is rated for indoor use in a non-hazardous situation with the main purpose of preventing accidental contact. A rating of IP 66 means that the enclosure is totally protected from dust and against temporary flooding of water. Another threat that electrical cabinets protect their contents from is electromagnetic interference (EMI, also known as radio frequency interference, or RFI) which is a disturbance that affects electrical circuitry due to electromagnetic radiation or conduction from an external source. Special coatings are available to shield an enclosure's contents from EMI/RFI.
