WHY TABLE-TOP ENCLOSURES NEED HIGHER SPECIFICATIONS

Table-Top enclosures

Blog - April 2018

Life is getting more demanding for plastic electronic enclosures. These days they must be waterproof, resistant to intense UV rays  – and tough enough to take a beating.

But we’re not talking about the great outdoors. No, this is all about another challenging environment that can spell disaster for fragile electronics…

Your customers’ desks.

Especially if those desks happen to be in the medical sector. Hospitals, surgeries and care home are wonderful at taking care of people but they’re not always so kind to electronics over the long term. So today’s new generation of table-top enclosures should be:

  • IP rated against water and dust ingress – find out here which IP rating is best for your enclosures
  • molded from a UV stable plastic such as ASA+PC-FR – because sunlight can rot plastics even indoors
  • tough but with ergonomic bevels – curves are not just more comfortable, they also seem to be better at shrugging off impacts
  • highly stable with non-slip rubber feet (they may be prosaic but they work!)
  • assembled with stainless steel Torx screws to prevent tampering (a ‘must have’ specification for the medical sector).

Which is why we launched EVOTEC IP 65 designer table-top enclosures. And you've been buying a lot of them. So many in fact that we’ve just unveiled another new size…

EVOTEC table-top enclosures

NEW EVOTEC 100 Table-Top Enclosures

Joining EVOTEC sizes 150 (5.90" x 3.66"), 200 (7.87" x 4.88") and 250 (9.84" x 6.10") is the new size 100 (3.93" x 2.44"). All four sizes feature a flat top. The 200 and 250 are also available with sloping tops (either recessed or non-recessed). They’re canted at a 12° angle for optimum comfort.

Every EVOTEC features a large operating area in the top panel for switches, pushbuttons and touchscreen displays – along with screw pillars in the top and base for installing your PCBs.

EVOTEC Customised To Your Specifications

Standard EVOTEC offers you benefits that the average enclosure can’t because it anticipates so many design requirements. Why specify a custom enclosure when an off-the-shelf EVOTEC already ticks all the boxes?

And even when you do need to go custom, EVOTEC’s high standard specifications mean that less customization is needed. Less time, less cost to get your perfect PCB-ready enclosure.
