Round plastic enclosures for IoT electronics
It has been announced that ROLEC has launched technoDISC, a round plastic enclosure for industrial electronics. It is based on the firm’s successful aluDISC diecast aluminium housings. The technoDISC cases are UV-stable and sealed to IP 66 (IP 67 optional), making them suited for Industry 4.0 and IoT applications both indoors and outside.
The round design integrates visually when used in applications such as industrial pipework, shipboard equipment, and vehicles.
These ‘go anywhere’ enclosures can be fitted to walls, bulkheads, machines – even when closed (protecting the seal and electronics during installation). Clip-on POM (polyoxymethylene) trims cover all the fixing and mounting screws.
New technoDISC’s smart design was inspired by the shape of a wristwatch, combining round aesthetics with flat surfaces to enable the mounting of cable glands and controls. The lid is recessed to accommodate a round membrane keypad or product label.
Inside the lid and base, there are fastening domes for self-tapping screws for the installation of PCBs and mounting plates.
The enclosures are available in four sizes from 110x97x55mm to 190x179x90mm, delivering optimum internal space for mounting a wide variety of electronic and electrical components. The top and base are moulded in UV-stable and flame-retardant Luran ASA (UL 94 V-0). The standard colour is light grey, similar to RAL 7035. The POM clip-on covers are anthracite grey, RAL 7016.
Prices for technoDISC start at £36. Options and accessories include EMC shielding, mounting plates and supporting rails for terminals.
ROLEC also offers a full customising service with CNC machining, bespoke colours, printing and engraving of legends and logos, membrane keypads and full assembly.
