Enclosures deliver reliability and flexibility in the most challenging of environments

Enclosures deliver reliability and flexibility in the most challenging of environments

Protecting sensitive electronic equipment in a harsh environment is always a challenge, one that Spelsberg has been meeting consistently since 1904. Its latest solution is the innovative GEOS, a highly durable enclosure that offers exceptional resistance to moisture and wide customisation options. It’s a protection solution that offers versatility in tough environments as standard.

One of the defining features of the GEOS that makes it a true all-rounder is its unique drain seal protection system. Drainage channels in the chassis of the GEOS move moisture away from the lid seal area, which ensures that over long-term usage, water poses a decreased risk to the integrity of the seal. Instead, moisture is directed to the rear of the enclosure, well away from the access point. Matched with an overlapping lid and an elastomer seal, challenging application environments with high levels of moisture are easily met by the GEOS.

Durability is a further key feature of the GEOS. Ingress protection can be specified at either IP66 or IP67 depending on customer requirement, but an impact protection rating of IK 09 is standard across the GEOS range. To further minimise wear and tear, the polycarbonate construction delivers exceptional resistance to adverse weather, temperature fluctuations, corrosion and UV rays. With these inherent features, the GEOS enclosure is often specified in coastal locations, as it can resist the elements and salty sea air.

The GEOS offers great versatility as standard thanks to a number of inherent features; however, it also offers a host of application specific options where required. Ten model variants complete the range, with various base sizes, heights and side wall measurements built in. Transparent lids can also be specified for ease of inspection, without having to open the enclosure. Screw or quick release mechanisms are also available.

Spelsberg’s in-house customisation service delivers even further specialisation for the GEOS, ensuring that it can seamlessly integrate with existing electrical architecture for ease of use. CNC machining capability and a dedicated in-house production line means that entirely bespoke GEOS enclosures can be delivered on greatly reduced lead times. Functional samples are even available within 24 hours. Drilling, milling, printing, wiring and customised packaging is all offered. This gives end users the ability to specify a perfect enclosure rather than simply suitable one.

Spelsberg reports that the GEOS has become a favourite with users in the energy, communications and automation sectors due to its high reliability. A combination of ruggedness, innovative features and wide-ranging customisation options means the GEOS is well suited to protecting vital electrical infrastructure in almost any challenging environment.
