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

During the manufacturing process, the food and beverage industries must adhere to strict guidelines regarding product safety and contamination .
Industrial plants and factories must ensure that all machinery, including computer enclosures, are regularly cleaned and contaminant-free. The washdown procedure removes residue and waste materials to preserve the highest food and beverage quality.

When budgeting for a PC enclosure deployment, there are many reasons as to why a company may choose one cabinet over another.
Quality, warranty, reputation, and availability are all common items that drive a purchasing decision. It is wise to explore all options available on the market and hone in on some “not so obvious” items that will help companies recognize the true cost of ownership.

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.

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.”
