Today’s modular enclosures differ from older, welded enclosures in several important ways. Newer enclosures’ modularity provide greater flexibility in system design, mounting options, and other deployment characteristics. Compared to welded enclosures, modular enclosures provide a much greater range of dimensions, multiple mounting options within the same platform, more flexibility in system designs, greater ease of wiring due to removable skins and doors, and high configurability using standard components—all of which can serve to lower overall costs.

Sullivan will discuss the essential functions of enclosures, and how the two enclosure types perform those functions. Additionally, he will share best practice considerations when specifying an enclosure. Among those considerations are the application for which the enclosure will be used, the environment in which it will reside, material considerations, the enclosure’s need to facilitate cable management, as well as an in-depth look at what you need to know when considering space, temperature and internal design requirements.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • The crucial questions to consider when designing your enclosure solution
  • Strategies for achieving lower total cost of ownership in your enclosure design
  • How today’s modular enclosures differ from older welded, unibody “non-modular” enclosures
