Enclosures act as protection for our electronic devices. This allows our electronic devices to be secured from harsh conditions, corrosion, rust, and damages. Enclosures are crucial to the functioning of the device inside it because they may or may not enhance the devices working quality. It houses the entire electronic devices, switches, knobs, and wires in one place. Many times, protection for our electrical devices are taken for granted, causing a shorter life span for the device. One way to ensure its durability is investing in the best enclosure that will not disrupt any of the electronic device's functions. These are three main purposes of having an electronic enclosure;

Against Water Ingress

Did you know that here in YONGU we have an IP68 Waterproof Aluminum Enclosure? IP68 is the highest protection rating for water ingress, and in some cases, these electronic enclosures are used in the outdoor area. As exposed to harsh weather conditions, they are also prone to flooding, and good thing our product can be submerged in water at a certain level.

Extreme Temperatures

Electronic equipment is prone to damage when exposed to extreme temperatures. Most of our electronic devices slow down after overheating. Heat sinks found in aluminum enclosures allow the ventilation of the electronics to cool down. Also, aluminum enclosures are good heat dissipators, prohibiting your electronics from overheating.

Hazards, Scratches, and Damages

There is nothing more important than to assure that the electronic wires and tapes do not get in touch with our human body, because an open wire may cause a shock hazard. Enclosures ensure that all these wires and tapes are contained in one area, organize, and free from shock hazards. However, plastic enclosures limit the risk of having shock hazards as compared to metal enclosures.

Now that we have mentioned the different purposes of enclosures, let us now move on to the different types of electronic enclosures. The component of your project box must be chosen carefully to assure that it fits its functionality. We have two main types of electronic enclosure, plastic, and metal.

Plastic enclosures are cheaper compared to metal boxes and more lightweight. Due to its nonconductivity, it assures that the electronic devices inside cannot harm the person when touch. One example of plastic enclosures is the ABS Plastic enclosure or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, a tougher thermoplastic.

Metal Enclosures or Metal Box generally uses either stainless steel or aluminum. It is more expensive than plastic enclosures, but rest assured that the price is worth it.

Since metal enclosures are more durable, can withstand the weight of the device, and its RF Shielding.

Now let us talk more about the aluminum enclosures as the leading electronic enclosure. A lot has been mentioned about the advantages of aluminum in previous articles, feel free to read more about it. In general, aluminum enclosures have high conductivity, which means better electronic performance. Excellent heat dissipation management means that your electronic device can be free from overheating, thus not compromising the functionality of the device. The anodized aluminum enclosure gives better protection to the enclosure itself, giving it a longer life span through oxidizing. Also, anodized aluminum enclosures are open to color customization. 

 

Here in YONGU we have a wide range of color shades that you can choose from for your aluminum enclosure. Aluminum enclosures are naturally lightweight, thus mobility of your device is not an issue. Lastly, aluminum enclosures can be waterproof and protect your electronics from harsh weather conditions.
