How will cables be managed and inserted into a computer enclosure?
In an industrial or manufacturing environment, a great deal of planning goes into designing a heavy-duty enclosure system for electronics. One very important step that can be overlooked, during the design stage, is how power and/or network cables will enter a NEMA 4 or NEMA 4X enclosure. By definition, NEMA 4 and NEMA 4X enclosures are waterproof (rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, hose directed fluids) and will not include a traditional split panel for running cables into the enclosure. Most enclosure manufacturers offer a sealed cable entry gland that will maintain the NEMA seal and provide a clean, safe way for cabling to reach the electronics.
Many options exist and differ depending on a customer’s specific application.
