As interconnection of industrial plants and equipment becomes ever more important and more common, and the introduction of the 5G standard drastically increases data rates, promising an even higher usability potential of wireless communication, FIBOX ARCA wall-mounted enclosures offer optimal protection for radio modems and other telecommunications devices. The control cabinets made of glass-fiber reinforced polycarbonate are extremely robust and low-maintenance. They let radio waves pass through unhindered so that no special measures are necessary when integrating Wi-Fi or other radio applications – devices can simply be installed inside the housing, without openings for antennas. This eliminates the need for machining and sealing enclosures just to feed through antennas. The absence of external antennas reduces the risk of damage due to mechanical impacts such as by vandalism or during transport. Since current EMC device standards no longer require overall shielding of the electronics in control cabinets, the once weighty argument for metal cabinets is now obsolete. At the same time, ARCA series plastic control cabinets offer considerable advantages over standard sheet-metal enclosures: they only weigh half of what same-sized metal versions weigh, they are equally suitable for harsh, demanding indoor and outdoor applications, and at comparable prices. The polycarbonate enclosures with foamed PUR gaskets feature IP66/IP67 ingress protection. They permanently withstand ambient temperatures between -40 °C and 80 °C and provide high protection against vandalism, featuring impact resistance ratings up to IK10. Dents and deformations, which were a persistent threat to the sealing performance of metal control cabinets, become a thing of the past with the switch to ARCA. Lastly, grounding is no longer necessary due to the plastic enclosures‘ protective insulation.

Polycarbonate control cabinets – low-maintenance and more robust than sheet steel

Highly robust and resilient, light-weight, and almost maintenance-free: in all of these respects, ARCA IEC series wall cabinets made by Fibox from glass fiber-reinforced polycarbonate are superior to standard sheet-metal housings.

Highly robust and resilient, light-weight, and almost maintenance-free: in all of these respects, ARCA IEC series wall cabinets made by Fibox from glass fiber-reinforced polycarbonate are superior to standard sheet-metal housings. User will therefore often find them to be a higher-quality replacement – for instance, in harsh and demanding indoor and outdoor applications of various kinds, such as housing telecom equipment, power distribution components, or control systems e.g. in machine engineering. Moreover, while they may cost about the same, ARCA IEC enclosures are only half the weight of sheet-steel cabinets, making them considerably easier to handle. The plastic housings with foamed polyurethane gaskets tolerate long-term exposure to temperatures between -40 °C and +80 °C. The vandal-proof enclosures maintain their high degree of IP66/67 ingress protection thanks to their top-rated IK09 impact resistance: they can take deformations, dents or dings that would seriously compromise the sealing of steel cases. Scratches are not a cause for concern either: while they can easily damage anti-corrosion coatings on other enclosures, they are irrelevant for polycarbonate housings. Holes for cable entry can be easily drilled. In addition, ARCA IEC cabinets come with protective insulation. Hence, unlike sheet-steel cabinets, they require no dedicated earthing.

Flexible options for control cabinet mounting

The ARCA IEC enclosure series from Fibox is designed for flexible handling in any and all on-site conditions. The various wall mounting options are a case in point. The polycarbonate enclosures feature double-walled corners with mounting holes located outside of the IP66 protected installation space.

The ARCA IEC enclosure series from Fibox is designed for flexible handling in any and all on-site conditions. The various wall mounting options are a case in point. The polycarbonate enclosures feature double-walled corners with mounting holes located outside of the IP66 protected installation space. These enable direct wall attachment with screws that cannot be accessed from the outside. Alternatively, Fibox offers stainless steel wall mounting lugs that resist adverse environmental conditions. The threaded lugs can be fastened with a screw from the inside of the enclosure. The wall mounting lugs available in two depths of 10 and 40 mm also enable hidden routing of cables behind the cabinet. In addition, Fibox offers pole mounting sets (100-300 mm diameter) for all 14 cabinet sizes from 200 x 300 x 150 mm to 800 x 600 x 300 mm.
