An industrial enclosure which prevents condensation is being used to protect electrical distribution boards. Spelsberg’s AK Air enclosure system features an integrated ventilation system whilst still delivering IP65 protection against ingress of water and dust particles.
When recent flooding in North Macedonia threatened the country’s supply of electricity, the company tasked with draining the mine, Simtech Solution, turned to WEG for support at a critical time.
In an era of technological innovation, the power industry is at the forefront. There is a constant demand to adapt and improve – and panel builders are doing just that.
For many designers of DIY or prototype projects, once the electronics are laid out, finding a suitable enclosure is often left to the last minute. This may be reasonable if it’s going to be used indoors on a desk or placed on a wall, temporarily. But if the project is intended for use outdoors over a long period of time, it will quickly succumb to the elements or be damaged, either intentionally or unintentionally, by malicious tampering or idle curiosity.
There was a time when prototypes for bespoke industrial enclosures were expensive and took weeks to produce. Thanks to advances in 3D printing, today’s prototypes are not only faster and less expensive to develop, but the increased possibility to make design tweaks creates a better final product.
