3 Considerations for Choosing a NEMA 4X Enclosure

NEMA 4X rated computer enclosures are the perfect solution for a washdown environment. 



Computers, monitors, printers, and keyboards are an absolute must for product manufacturers, especially when it comes to automating the company’s processes. For computers to be operative in industrial settings, they are often placed in a dirty factory or plant environment, which means that they will most likely fail if exposed to harmful contaminants. Installing a NEMA 4X enclosure cabinet - to house a computer and electronics - will keep the system working for many years to come.

The beverage, food, and pharmaceutical industries, although primarily indoors, are challenging environments for electronics to exist and survive. A high pressure washdown, to reduce bacteria, utilizes harsh and abrasive cleaning solutions. Nevertheless, if not properly protected in a NEMA 4X computer enclosure, these chemicals will wreak havoc on computer systems

Deploying high-bright digital menu displays with enclosures takes research and strategizing.

Static menu boards, at the drive-thru, are not as prevalent as they once were, as Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) revamp their strategy to include digital signage solutions (both outdoors and indoors).

Several factors must be considered when researching outdoor digital menu boards, including trustworthiness, how easy is it to use, and can the digital boards achieve long-term sales goals?

Fan filters help keep oil, dust, dirt, fibers, and lint outside and away from the enclosure system. However, it is common for filter maintenance to be overlooked after deploying a computer enclosure. Depending on the environment, filters should be checked once or twice a month (or more) to ensure that proper air flow is being circulated throughout the cabinet.
