Evolution of Electronics Enclosure

Electronics enclosure are box-like structures that are designed to protect and enclose your electronic components in any environment and prevent electric shock. Enclosures are typically made of hard plastic or metal such as steel, stainless steel, or aluminum.

These IP-rated standard enclosures are tough, strong, and flexible. It can be installed anywhere: on walls, bulkheads, and machines. It must be easily customizable, both in terms of functionality and branding. Smart indusries and their clean rooms are a far cry from the dirty industrial plants of the 20th century.



Transformation of Electronics Enclosure

In 1967, the transformation of industrial electronics enclosure really started. A client approached a German entrepreneur Friedhelm Rose. The client needed an empty secured enclosure for a switch. Nothing was suitable then. So Rose altered the limit switch box to include a small limit switch and at both ends added cable glands.

Rumors quickly spread, and in the early 1970s, Rose moved his expanding enclosure business to larger premises. During the 1970s and 1980s, Friedhelmrose developed enclosure revolutions that set the standard today, and in 1986 he founded the new firm ROLEC.


ROLEC’s aluKOM (IP 66-rated)

The simplest secured enclosure is something like ROLEC’s aluKOM (IP 66-rated). This die-cast aluminum enclosure has been the worldwide standard since its inception. This type of enclosure is perfect for preparing all kinds of electrical and electronic components. The base has threaded screw bosses for the printed circuit board, preparing rails, and preparing plate. Other options comprise of lid supports, hinges, EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) shields, and mounting rails.


aluNORM (IP 66/67-rated)

Rolec built on aluKOM by initiating the aluNORM (IP 66/67-rated), which uses the same channel for the screws on the cover and the preparing screws to make more efficient use of the internal space. The enclosures also merge different lids and bases in four versions to accommodate a wide scope of sizes.


Diecast Enclosures

Next are diecast enclosures developed to give the solution of how to preserve the particularly fragile EMC shielding gaskets. In the past, the routine opening of the lid for inspection could have broken these seals. ROLEC’s solution was to do away with EMC gaskets entirely. Its fitted case (protection class IP 66/67-rated) has an integrated EMC shield designed by a patented tooth system precast on the cover and base.



aluCASE (IP 66/67/69K-rated)

aluCASE (IP 66/67/69K-rated) with separate channels for lid screws and mounting screws, the enclosure can be mounted with the lid closed. This is also very practical for support and survey. You can remove the enclosure, move it to a guarded location, and open the lid in good dry condition. All screws are hidden under the clip-on trims for added preservation and improved fairness. Most exclusive enclosures have this option. You also need a intended lid for mounting a membrane keyboard, front panel, or product tag.

All the packages we have seen so far are rectangular prisms. But if you want something curvier for your “round” application, such as pipework. In supposition, for industrial electronics, aluDISC (IP 66/67/69K-rated) is the world’s first “circular” diecast enclosure, but in reality, it is not round at all. Sure, its main viewing area is round, but the enclosure needs a flat edge to attach the connector. This way, while taking innovation from the wristwatch’s shape, Rolex maintained “roundness” as a design language.

ROLEC’s recent model is aluDOOR (IP 66/67/69K-rated). In effect, a “compact cabinet” represents a pace forward in enclosure design. Its revolutionary new lid presents a cleverly integrated axis design. The lid extends 100° for easy access. Available with or without membrane keyboard or product tag cutout. A2 stainless steel lid screws and threaded inserts ensure corrosion-resistant assembly under harsh conditions.

The lid can be installed quickly and easily. Close the lid and lock it with two T25 screws. Ejected aluminum trims hide and protect fixtures. A freshly foamed polyurethane seal acts as a seal. The seal is continuous and therefore provides better protection. There are no joints that could after sometimes become weak points.
