Overview

It's just a box right? Not all enclosures are created equal. In this webinar, Steve Sullivan, Rittal's training supervisor with more than 20 years of experience, will guide you through several key considerations in choosing an enclosure.

Often when designers and systems integrators think of an enclosure, it's simply as the last item on a list. Regardless of your application or environment, you can - with some initial consideration - optimize your enclosure design by utilizing the latest manufacturing technologies to protect your equipment, save space and reduce system costs.

But what separates a commodity enclosure from a value-added one? The answer is found in the ability to reduce typical use costs and total cost of ownership.

· Materials: carbon or stainless steel?

· Protection: which NEMA/UL rating is right?

· Security: door locks or remote monitoring?

· Safety: up-to-code designs?

· Power: round conductor or busbar?

· Cooling: filter fans or A/C?

By considering protection, efficiency and scalability at the outset, you can help ensure that your designs are not only functional but exceptional. Finding the right enclosure to ensure equipment uptime is achievable if you have selected the right design for your application and environment.

Learn how in this informative webinar.
