Managing Harsh Elements from Extreme Environments by Utilizing the Proper NEMA Cabinet

If you ever think that you are the toughest man, well think again! If you utilize server racks, they might be even tougher. However, not in the best way. A harshful environment can potentially bring severe damage in your server racks and other technological equipment if they are not being protected efficiently and properly. Extreme environments could potentially include some areas that has falling dirt, outdoor areas, dusty areas, as well as unfinished construction of warehouses.

In able to properly withstand these unideal environemtns to give efficient protection for your equipment, you probably need a NEMA rated server rack cabinet. These NEMA cabinets are initially designed to prvent dust, airborne particles, as well as dirt and other possible contaminants from totally damaging your valuable equipment. With this in mind, consider utilization of the following NEMA rated enclosures for harsh environments for each.

NEMA 12 Electronics Enclosure for Protection from Dust and Airborne Contaminants

These enclosure cabinets are originally made from steel and they are the most commonly used enclosure in environments like production facilities, factory floors, manufacturing fields, unfinished construction of warehouses, and many more. You can use NEMA 12 electronics enclosure in places where there are more dust particles floating around the air more than usual. These server cabinets have a gasketing system on all of its sides and doors and it leaves no room for contaminants to get inside of the enclosure. The normal cabinets also have existing vent patterns around the doors and its sides. While the NEMA 12 enclosures does not have these.

NEMA 3R Electronics Enclosure for Protection from Harmful Elements found in Outdoor Environments

These electronics enclosure can be utilized in both indoors and outdoors, but they are most commonly used for outdoor applications. The NEMA 3R cabinets can give protection for your equipment from solid object ingress brought by dust, dirt, and other particles floating in the air. NEMA 3R is similar to NEMA 12 in most of ways but NEMA 3R was also designed to give protection from other harmful environmental elements such as rain, ice, snow, and sleet.

These enclosure cabinets are primarily built using aluminum and they are mostly used for telecome applications. These applications involve the utilization of Wi-Fi, wireless/broadhband sites, fiber optics, and some trailer applications. The installati of fans or aircondiitoning units are beneficial for this type of enclosure. Especially if your equipment creates a certain amount of heat. The heaters are also widely available when the cabinet is going to be utilized in a very cold environment. The cold temperature can exceed the cold threshold which in return will be very damaging to the equipment as equivalent to too much heat exposure. The NEMA 3R enclosure can be wall mounted, pole-mounted or even pad-mounted (or freestanding.)

NEMA 4 or 4X for Protection from Possible Corrosion Formation or Hose Directed Water

The NEMA 4 and 4X are very in a large variety of ways. Both of these enclosures effectively address the major concerns of a NEMA 12 enclosure as well as the 3R enclosure. These enclosures can also give protection for your equipment against hose directed water. The NEMA 4X can also give you a specific protection from possible corrosion because it is entirely made from stainless steel. The NEMA 4 and 4X are going to be utilized for the same applications where the NEMA 3R is also used. NEMA 4 and 4X are very popular when they are used for traffic enclosures.

What are Automatic Temperature Controllers? The Product Spotlight!

Just last year, my beloved dad gave me an electric smoker. Being a BBQ fanatic his gift is a very wonderful thing to me. It really worked great during my BBQ parties! I was able to cook ribs, pork tenderloin, sausage-stuffed hot peppers. Including some pork brisket! And unlike going to our local restaurant, I already have plenty of leftovers to enjoy for days. Now, you can too!

The Digital Power & Motion was able to create an automated temperature controller for the charcoal fired barbecue cookers just by using one of our plastic electronics enclosures. While my propane-fueled grill has been made with a temperature gauge and heat controls, our charcoal grill does not have the same options. It really burns hot.

The iQue 110 Automatic Temperature Controller in my griller helps the user to slowly cook the food using a charcoal grill together with the controlled temperature. The device also compensates for the wind or outside temperature changes. This also change how the fuel quantity effects the cooking time for the meat. This temperature controller has a controlled precision for burning and charcoal. All of these stuff are using plastic electronics enclosure.

There are detailed information about this product. For more information and product literature, FAQs and other contact information, this can be found at http://www.pitmasteriq.com. You can also even order your very own iQue 110 Automatic Temperature Controller right from their website.

There are several applications for plastic electronic enclosure. You just have to be very flexible.

When we returned home, we just found out my very own home town was experiencing strong snow fall. The area has been stucked to 25 to 35 degrees and because of this, the snow has continued for several days now. There’s not much sticking or piling up of snow but the very harsh chilly, cold weather has officially came. With that in mind, I guess this is the right time for Divelbiss to effectively promote their very own Harsh Environment Controller!

The product was made base d on the PLC on a Chip™ technology. The HEC-HIM controller series makes provision for the programmable intelligence to perform under the less ideal conditions because of the sealed, water-tight enclosure it was housed in. There were also the gland connectors.

Initially, the standard enclosure was now then sealed against the environment, and it is installed via screw and it was designed to be sub-plate mountable. This product’s programming was made through the Divelbiss EZ ladder programming software which gives support to the given ladder diagram together with the function of block programming.

In line with this, the product is primarily designed to be able to survive even the hardest field conditions. The HEC stands for Harsh Environment Controller. The product lived up to its name like the other programmable logic controllers that are widely available in Divelbiss Corporation. The HEC-HMI is also widely available like the HMI only or with the HMI Programmable Logic controller of the given enclosure.

The usual industrial utilization of this product includes the improved proportional vavle control that is installed using closed loop. There is also the control engine driven pumps and also compressors. There are also some mobile asset management and effective tracking. Lastly, there is intelligent mining, oil field equipment, conveyor systems as well as marine application.

How does Electronic Key Ring Devices Works?

Just last week, there was something that really started bothering me: I beat my boyfriend at chess. I cannot believe it. The first words after my victory was “did I really won? Or you just let me win?” Basically, we have been continuously playing a lot of games recently and I was not given the chance to in in 8 months we are doing it. I lost every game, until this one!

After chess, we have decided to change the game we are playing – Trivial Pursuit. However, he has mopped the game board with me but it is totally okay. I have to forgive him because I won at chess anyway. But I got a realization. All the months I have been losing to him, he thought me of different strategies on how I can win the game. He taught me the rules and the pitfalls, he was totally pointing out what are the better move choices. This has guided me into doing the right strategy. I started thinking since I love learning, it has enabled me to win at chess!

With this in mind, let us start looking at how some technology efficiently works.

One sample product we can take a look at is the keyfob small electronics enclosure. You can see these type of enclosures almost everywhere. They are used as car keys, calculators, small televisions and so much more. There is a rubber keypad installed on it with a paring conductive contact on its back. Once the button is successfully pressed, the conductive contact successfully meets the board. It now started to send an electronics signal that completes the whole process of completing a specific task that was successfully assigned to the circuit.

To further illustrate this example – let us use a calculator. When you press a button labeled as #1, the screen sows a 1. When you add the plus sign after to it then when you press the 3 and the equals button, it will give you a number 4.

This also works as the same way a keyless entry remote works. When you press the button that was labeled unlocked, it manages to activate the circuit installed on the board. It now starte to send a wireless signal going to the system’s receiver. It was located in the vehicle, and now it prompts the electric locks to be opened. This was a keyless entry.

How to Reduce the Sound Produced in Your Data Space through Sound Proof Server Cabinet?

Most of the time, students have been continually complaining about the loud sound the equipment in their school produces while they were taking tests or having a class lecture. There is one best solution to this problem: sound proof cabinets. Not only it can address the loud sound in schools, but it can also serve the loud sound in other environments. It can reduce the noise up to 26 dBa, which is most likely to reducing a loud noise to a whisper.

The electronics enclosure was proven to create a very huge difference to those that has been very affected by very loud environment. Together with several different size options that is widely available (9u to 44u). There are also several different styles for the cabinets such as wall mounts as well as standing server cabinets. But companies can be assured that there is an existing sound proof cabinet for every application.

Sound reduction is not the only priority. A common concern when considering enclosed server rack cabinets like the Sound Proof is heat. In an enclosed space it can be very easy for equipment to become overheated, which can lead to all sorts of detrimental equipment failures. But, Sound Proofs have it covered.

In addition to the decreasing of disturbing sound, the sound cabinets can also release up to 12kW worth of heat. What is the most interesting characteristic about these cabinets is that the topmost part of the wardrobe allows the cooler air to come in through the wardrobe doors. With this in mind, the hot air is now being pushed out from the topmost part of the rear wardrobe doors installed on the cabinet. The doors makes allowance for the cool air to properly circulate in the rack area and this system can make the cabinet at good acceptable temperature.

Sound Proof Cabinets may sound to good to be true, but the features that the sound proof cabinets have been offering are very safe and very secure. The manufacturers of these cabinets clearly knows that keeping the equipment is very important as well as protecting your equipment is vitally crucial.

This is the very reason why companies have the option to be able to effectively upgrade your server cabinets that comes together with wide options of security options – from having security cameras to having electronic locking systems. When it finally comes to proper cable management, we don’t have to worry about having the cables confusingly intertwined to each other.

The sound proof cabinets were designed to have 6 cable points of entry on each side: 3 on topmost and 3 on the bottom part. This design should not compromise the sound of reduction being produced. The data center cabinets also came with rack casters accessories to make the cabinets more mobile in case companies wants them to move around.

5 Effective Tips to Achieve Data Center’s Efficiency in Electricity

Along with airflow and cooling, using the right tools to monitor your power usage can also be very effective. The following are 10 improvements you can make in your data center in order to improve your energy efficiencies and ultimately save money.

1) Contain your aisles with doors and rack top baffles

As mentioned earlier, aisle containment helps to keep hot air in one section of the data center and cold air in another. This allows for a more natural flow of air in your space, which naturally creates lower energy usage. Upsite’s AisleLok Aisle Containment systems are extremely easy to install and get the job done! You can learn more about this innovative technology from Upsite, here.

2) Utilize proper cable management to increase airflownp-2-sp

Believe it or not, the ways your cables are configured make a big difference in airflow. If your cables are all tangled, they could be blocking air from going in and out of your racks. We sell hundreds of cable management tools that can make your cables organized and improve your airflow all at the same time. You can also read more about some of our cable management tips here.

3) Decommission unused servers

You may have servers in your data center that are using energy but are not actually doing anything. In that case, decommission these devices. If they do not serve a purpose in your data center, then they do not need to be using valuable power resources.

4) Replace inefficient PDUs and Servers with energy star rated equivalents

Energy Star Rated equipment meets the guidelines of energy efficiency mandated by the federal government. PDUs and servers that are not Energy Star Rated could potentially be using too much energy in an inefficient way, which drives up your costs. Swap out old, inefficient equipment with updated, Energy Star Rated equipment.

5) Use high efficiency UPS Systemsenterpriseplus-rack-front-1

UPS systems help to protect your equipment from surges and spikes in power as well as prevent downtime. Even though using these devices means that you’ll have more equipment using power in your data center, UPS systems use power efficiently and give you insight into how your other equipment is using power.
