Shallow electrical boxes are designed to house components in industrial or commercial environments where space may be a concern. Optional accessories on select series of low profile electrical boxes include internal mounting panels, cable glands, vents, DIN rails and pole mounting kits.
Common Use Cases for Low Profile Electrical Boxes
What’s the purpose of low profile enclosures? Basically, it’s all about minimizing an enclosure’s spatial footprint. Specifically, a “low profile” enclosure almost always means an enclosure with a shallow height — i.e., the distance between its base and its cover is short. Ultimately, that means the enclosure will be less physically prominent.
So, which types of applications call for a low profile enclosure? While the actual end user applications vary widely, the basic answer is that a low profile enclosure can be a good choice any time you need an enclosure model that conserves space. That could be an industrial enclosure that needs to fit inside a larger piece of equipment, or it could be a desktop enclosure that requires a compact form factor for user experience purposes. Whatever the specific application, the small footprint of low profile enclosures makes them easier to fit right where they’re needed.
