When installing thermal management on heavy-duty computer enclosures, filters are essential in keeping particulate matter away from sensitive and expensive electronics.  


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.

How well does WiFi work when a device is enclosed in a fully-sealed, steel computer enclosure?

The most commonly used industrial computer enclosures in manufacturing environments are constructed out of metal – powder coat finish or stainless steel. A non-metallic enclosure can be used to promote a stronger wireless signal strength, but steel enclosures are more rugged, heavy-duty, and will withstand the test of time. Unfortunately, when enclosing a wireless device(s) inside of a steel enclosure, the WiFi signal can be weakened or non-existent.

Hardware performance and functionality, in general, does not vary much between companies, but there are many options and price points available. 

On the other hand, hardware is useless if the software loaded on it is difficult to use or if customer support is not readily available. The same issues ring true for selecting an industrial enclosure for a manufacturing environment. Purchasing an enclosure from a ‘big-name’ supplier does not mean that the enclosure is the best fit for the equipment or personnel that will be using the system. From a functionality standpoint, the enclosure’s worth may far exceed the original purchase price. If the electronics are difficult to install inside of the enclosure or if there is a considerable amount of installation time, then the purchase price is not reflective of the ‘real cost.’

It’s not just a box… 

When searching for the perfect
pc enclosure, system integrators and project engineers should investigate outsourcing certain components of a computer workstation to help reduce costs, shorten delivery time, and ensure a better overall enclosure solution. When deploying a new workstation or upgrading an existing system, designers must determine what type of computer enclosure will work best, and also plan how the components and wiring will come together to complete the project. Enclosure manufacturers always strive to quickly provide the “perfect” cabinet. However, the value added through flexibility and modifications can be very appealing if integrators work with a supplier that “can do it all.”
