Polycarbonate control cabinets are robust and compact control cabinets In contrast to classic steel control cabinets or stainless-steel-control-cabinets, they are lighter and more affordable, and are thus suitable for installation in many areas of application.
The thermoplastic polycarbonate is characterised by many positive properties that make the material very well-suited for control cabinets. One important property is the high impact resistance of the hard material. It is also corrosion and weather resistant. The use of UV-stabilised polycarbonate means that the control cabinets are also UV resistant. As a result of these properties, polycarbonate control cabinets (in comparison to sheet steel cabinets) are particularly well-suited for outdoor use or for installation in harsh environments. Other advantages include their durability and the fact that they are almost completely maintenance-free.
The polycarbonate is very light, on acccount of which the control cabinets weigh around just half of what similar designs made from sheet metal weigh. This facilitates transport and, in particular, the mounting of the control cabinets. Openings such as cable bushing systems can be made without any problem using a conical drill, and can, for the most part, be realised directly during mounting. Here, earthing as with sheet metal enclosures is not necessary.
You will find a large selection of polycarbonate control cabinets in the Automation24 online shop. The products from the ARCA series by FIBOX are characterised by an exceptional price/performance ratio and a well-thought-out design. The control cabinets fulfil the IK10 standard and, as such, are particularly impact-resistant and flame-retardant in accordance with UL 94-5 VA. Furthermore, the double-walled corner designs serve to ensure the IP 66/67 protection rating. Combined with the UV resistance and foam-filled, wide PUR seals, the polycarbonate control cabinets are ideally suited for outdoor use. The chamfered enclosure also provides effective rain protection.
