Large Enclosures for Large Electronics Projects

October 10th, 2011

Whoever said “bigger isn’t always better”, obviously didn’t work in the electronic enclosures industry. At Polycase® good things can come in big packages. Our 5 largest sizes of enclosures boast ample interior space with a durable exterior, perfect for your heavy-duty project requirements.

Let’s start with our DC-96 enclosure, which is available with or without surface mounting flanges. This box runs 10 x 6 x 3 inches and is available in black or gray. An optional recessed/smooth area on the cover is ideal for graphic overlays. The enclosure comes standard with 8 PCB mounting bosses in the base. The cover screws into brass inserts for cover on/ cover off applications and is molded in flame retardant ABS with a UL94-5VA flame rating. The DC-96 is ideal for projects requiring a large housing that will be used in a dry, indoor setting.

The other 4 sizes are perfect for projects that require some form of weather proofing, as they all belong to our NEMA-rated family of enclosures:

 

Enclosure Dimensions
WA-35, WC-35 & WP-35 10.43 x 7.28 x 3.74 inches
WA-40, WC-40 & WP-40 9.45 x 6.30 x 3.60 inches
WA-42, WC-42 & WP-42 11.81 x 9.05” x 3.40 inches
WA-44, WC-44 & WP-44 14.12 x 7.84 x 5.96 inches

 

All of these boxes are designed to IP65 of IEC 529 and NEMA 1, 2, 4, 4x, 12 and 13 specifications. They come standard with both brass-threaded PCB mounting bosses and shorter plastic bosses. Captive, stainless steel screws thread into brass inserts for cover on/cover off applications. Assembly includes base, silicone gasket, cover and 6 enclosure screws. The WA series is molded in a dark gray ABS, while the WP and WC series are both molded from UV stabilized light gray polycarbonate which makes them an ideal choice for outdoor applications. (WC has clear polycarbonate cover with light gray base).
