Today’s engineers are often very well trained in everything that is needed for tech from the latest embedded systems to the internet of things. However, it can be the simpler things that trip them up, such as dealing with an electronic enclosure for their projects. We have found that, although the enclosure is quite low tech, it can intimidate engineers who do not want to risk their projects on making the wrong protection choice. To assist, Bud has created a wealth of information and tools that help avoid the common mistakes in enclosure selection.
First, Bud has a very easy to use product selector. Use the sliders to select the key dimensions and drop downs to determine materials and protection levels and the system presents options, with photos that are easy to research. With the option of searching by internal or external dimensions, the engineer can readily insure that her components will fit perfectly. One click on the part and they are taken to a detailed page with everything from photos to drawings.
Second, Bud has a wide variety of white papers all of which focus on the selection process. From determine the best level of protection for industrial automation to the proper selection of a server rack, these all guide the user to the most cost effective yet user friendly solution. Other white papers provide assistance with both accessories and the simple process of modifying an enclosure as well as avoiding many of the common pitfalls in the enclosure selection process.
Now, Bud has developed an e-book which provides the latest details on the newest products being developed as well as suggestions for the best applications. As Bud expands into the Atex market as well as with higher levels of protection (IP68) for its popular die cast box series, there is no question that the best enclosures are at your fingertips. While you are there, test your knowledge and see whether you can get all of the extreme engineering questions right.
