An enclosure for every application

An enclosure for every application

Hitaltech’s range of IP rated enclosures aims to meet the requirements of engineers when designing an electronic or electrical system. Hitaltech understands that there are a number of factors which need to be taken into account when selecting an enclosure for an application. This is true whether the enclosure is DIN rail mounting, hand held or sealed.

The factors in question usually start with the enclosure size itself. There is no doubt that determining which is the right enclosure for the application before designing the PCB is the ideal scenario as the overall constraints will be minimal. However for instances where the PCB/application has been designed and the final piece of the puzzle is an enclosure to suit, Hitaltech aim to offer a comprehensive range of solutions.

The IP65 Sealed enclosure range is available across a range of sizes, from the relatively small 80x80x60mm box, to larger industrial sized enclosures measuring 360x360x158mm.

Once the correct sized enclosure has been determined, there are a number of other factors the design engineer is likely to consider, such as the availability of a hinged lid for regular access to the electronics within the case or a transparent lid allowing the user to see the internal components. Captive screws to ensure the security of the enclosure and a separate terminal wiring compartment are also considerations, as are available samples for testing/design.

In order to meet these demands Hitaltech are pleased to offer a comprehensive range of IP65 rated enclosures  and cable glands.

In today’s competitive market, design engineers are being pushed by sales and marketing to design an aesthetically pleasing product whilst keeping costs relatively low. As a result, engineers face a situation where a standard off-the-shelf enclosure does not meet these requirements but the option to outlay the costs for a custom mould is not viable.

Whether it is the IP rated, DIN Rail mounting or hand held enclosures, for relatively low MOQs these electronic enclosures can be cost effectively custom machined and/or printed to meet customer specific demands.
