AlSi 12 Aluminum Empty Enclosure for EMC Critical Applications

In plant technology and mechanical engineering, empty housings usually have to withstand considerable external influences. Despite dust development, moisture and external stress, the functionality of the electronics installed in the universal housing, such as buttons, switches, membrane keyboards and cable connections, must not be impaired. With the Alster series, BOXEXPERT supplies robust and waterproof enclosures made of aluminum, for the protection and cabling of electronics in various fields of application. In addition to the external protection of electronic components, the waterproof empty enclosure is optimally suited for the use of EMC-critical applications due to the material composition (AlSi 12, according to DIN EN 1706). In combination with special EMC cable glands, comprehensive basic protection for electromagnetic compatibility is achieved. A special EMC coating on the empty aluminum housing allows unwanted interference currents to be dissipated via the housing wall. Especially in automation technology, such effects play an overriding role in the selection of enclosures. Alster aluminum housings are manufactured using the die-casting process, which results in high process stability and thus the lowest possible manufacturing tolerances.

HOUSING SURFACE

BOXEXPERT die-cast aluminum enclosures have high corrosion and weather resistance. The additional powder coating ensures insensitivity to UV radiation, making the housing suitable for outdoor use. The universal housing, which is available in the protection classes IP66, IP67 and IP68, shows itself as a waterproof housing robust against moisture, oils and alkalis and protects the electronics even under harsh environmental conditions and extreme temperatures. With a shock resistance rating of IK09, the aluminum housing is a robust all-purpose housing for machine and plant engineering.

SEALING

In addition to the robust housing wall, the housing seal of the BOXEXPERT aluminum housings provides further protection against the ingress of dust and liquids. The seal is made of low-wear polyurethane. The foamed-in PUR seal is characterized by high resistance to weathering and aging and thus optimally complements the properties of the enclosure. Based on the tongue-and-groove principle between the seal and the housing cover, the internals are reliably protected against the ingress of dust and moisture, achieving a protection rating of at least IP66.

INSTALLATION

Integrated threaded holes in the empty housing enable uncomplicated mounting of various components. Top-hat rails and mounting plates can be mounted without additional processing of the housing. Due to its attractive appearance, the Alster aluminum enclosure can also be used as an operating enclosure. It is ideally suited for smaller installations, as well as electromechanical assemblies and operating elements such as pushbuttons and membrane keyboards. Special grounding screws are also part of the accessories supplied.

Therefore, in our aluminium enclosures of the Alster series, the appropriate earthing screws are supplied and the connection for earthing is located with the correct symbol on the base plate of the enclosure. The tightening torque of the grounding screw should be between 1.5Nm to max. for correct use. 2.7Nm.

Mounting holes for grounding screws

In the lower part of the housing there are several possibilities for fixing the earthing screws. No coating was applied to the housing around the mounting holes to improve contact.

Captive cover screws

To increase the ease of assembly of the cover, we have provided captive screws. The screws are made of stainless steel (1.4301 (A2)) and are therefore rustproof.

For our aluminium enclosures of the Alster series we have chosen a system of lid fixing which is outside the protection area. On the one hand, the external screw fastening channels have the advantage that the user of the enclosures can make full use of the interior space and, on the other hand, the risk of chip formation is minimised by fastening the cover screws. The housing is supplied with a circumferential neoprene seal, which covers temperature ranges from -40°C to max. +110°C can be covered.

Flat cover for large area machining

The aluminium housing is powder-coated in grey (RAL7035) on the outside. Optionally we offer further standard colours. The lid has been designed so that no indentations or irregularities interrupt the smooth surface. This enables large-area printing or integrated use for fixtures, such as indicator lights, dispensers, etc.

Correct grounding for protection against electric shock
The protective measure protective earthing of electrotechnical systems serves to keep an active (live) conductor at earth potential in the event of a short circuit with a conductive, touchable part (e.g. the housing) and thus to prevent or at least reduce a current flow through the (human) body to earth. Therefore, in our aluminium enclosures of the Alster series, the appropriate earthing screws are supplied and the connection for earthing is located with the correct symbol on the base plate of the enclosure. The tightening torque of the grounding screw should be between 1.5Nm to max. for correct use. 2.7Nm.
All-round seal and external screw channels for maximum degree of protection
The protection of internal components is the main task of our enclosure systems. These thoughts therefore already play an enormous role in the conception phase of new developments. For our aluminium enclosures of the Alster series, we have therefore opted for a cover fastening system that lies outside the protected area. On the one hand, the external screw fastening channels have the advantage that the user of the enclosures can make full use of the interior space and, on the other hand, the risk of chip formation is minimised by fastening the cover screws. The housing is supplied with a circumferential neoprene seal, which covers temperature ranges from -40°C to max. +110°C can be covered.
Overlapping joints for optimal fit and improved EMC properties and optimum protection
In addition to the all-round neoprene seals and the external screw channels, the Alster enclosure series is manufactured with overlapping joints in the lid and base. The overlap has several positive effects: Optimal guidance of the components for easy mounting, additional protection against the ingress of water or dust and also the EMC properties of the housing are positively influenced by the overlapping edges.
