A DIN rail enclosure or a DIN rail box is an enclosure to which one or more DIN rails may be mounted. A DIN rail is a flat metal bar of standardized dimensions that provides a convenient means of mounting components to a wall or inside an enclosure. Installers simply snap or slide components into place on the rail.
This is a popular format in control applications because the components tend to be modular and can be easily changed: power supplies, solenoids, actuators, circuit breakers, and terminal blocks. At Bud, we know this and offer enclosures designed with brackets that mount on DIN rails.

Add your PCBs to a DIN rail mount enclosure
Bud offers several plastic electronic enclosures designed to mount on DIN rails, such as our DIN Rail Mount Multi-Board Box that accommodates up to three PCBs. Add your own printed circuit boards and your design is ready for DIN rail mounting.
IP Rated DIN Rail Enclosure
If you need a water-proof DIN-rail mountable enclosure, then go to the NEMA/IP section of our website to see our extruded aluminum DMX Series enclosure. It’s IP66 rated to withstand factory washdowns.
Mounting DIN Rails Inside Enclosures
Bud also offers cabinets and enclosures capable of housing DIN-rail mounted components. Most of our large NEMA/IP-rated boxes have mounting bosses in the base to which DIN rails may be mounted. These DIN rail boxes are ideal for factory floor locations subject to washdown.
A good example is our NBG Series of large plastic enclosures that, unlike metal cabinets, will not block the RF signals used in IoT applications.
