December 2017 - Chatsworth Products Recommends Effective Equipment Enclosure Selection for the Internet of Things

New White Paper Provides Guidance to IT Systems Administrators When Extending the Network into Nontraditional Environments 

Selecting Enclosure for Harsh SpacesAGOURA HILLS, Calif., Dec. 12, 2017 — A new white paper from Chatsworth Products (CPI) suggests that IT Systems Administrators will be increasingly responsible for expanding the enterprise network into nontraditional spaces to support the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0. The paper provides guidance on how to successfully select enclosures that will house equipment in spaces such as warehouses, manufacturing floors and outdoors.

“Extending the Network Into Nontraditional Spaces: An Enclosure Selection Guide for IT Systems Administrators That Support IoT” explores the top use cases for the IoT and delves into the selection process of equipment enclosures that will be located in places with dust, liquid and crawling creatures.

“As a result of this fourth industrial revolution, the networking of plant equipment is expected to soar over the next five years, according to the Frost & Sullivan report, Manufacturing 4.0: A Playbook for Navigating the Journey to IT Modernization and Transformation. Companies are implementing end-to-end digitization of the manufacturing process to better trace quality issues, reduce the cost of poor quality, and enhance action on departmental feedback and customer-centric innovation.” 

In nontraditional spaces, the enclosure provides the primary protection for equipment, so it needs to be sealed and closed appropriately. Part of the enclosure selection includes not only correct features and accessories, but also requires some basic understanding about ingress protection standards such as the NEMA and IP requirements.  

The white paper guides readers through:

  • Protection ratings and what they mean
  • Industrial enclosure configurations
  • Three enclosures that fit most applications 
  • The most important accessories and features to consider
  • The best cooling methods for electronics
  • Remote power management and environmental monitoring
  • The most useful accessories
