Free Standing Electrical Enclosures: The Helpful Guide for Importers
If you are looking to import free-standing electrical enclosures, this guide is for you.
It will expand your knowledge of what this equipment is all about, the standards to look out for and many other things.
So, let’s get to it.
What is a Free Standing Electrical Enclosure?
A free-standing enclosure is a kind of a cabinet that houses electrical components and parts.
What makes it unique from other enclosures is that it stands alone.
Free standing electrical enclosure
It doesn’t need mounting or any form of support to balance.
Why You Need a Free Standing Electrical Enclosure
Generally, you need an electrical enclosure to protect you, other users and electrical components from the environment.
The enclosures, as the name suggests, encloses electrical or electronic equipment thus preventing users from electrical risks like shock, etc.
That is the general perspective on why you need a free-standing enclosure.
Free standing enclosure with electrical systems
More specifically, however, you’ll need a free-standing enclosure if you want something that you can move easily.
Evidently, free-standing enclosures are easily relocatable.
You can move them from one spot to the next with ease.
You just need to lift it up and move it to the next spot.
Another thing, free-standing electrical cabinets are easy to install.
If you do not want to spend hours reading installation manuals, then getting a free-standing enclosure would be ideal.
With this type, all you need to do is find a suitable spot and place them there.
It saves you the long hours of physically tiring procedures that come with installing other kinds of enclosures.
In my opinion, that’s pretty much it about why you need a free-standing electrical enclosure.
For its protection, ease of installation and portability.
About the designs, let’s find out below.
Designs of Free Standing Electrical Enclosure
Free-standing electrical enclosure come in two main structural designs. Single door and double door designs.
· Single Door Free Standing Electrical Enclosure
Single door enclosures come with a single access door.
Single door electrical enclosure
This is common in the smaller free electrical enclosure.
· Double Door Free Standing Electrical Enclosure
Again, as the name suggests, a double door free-standing electrical enclosure is one that is built with two access doors.
This one’s more common in larger enclosures mostly for industrial use.
Double door free standing electrical enclosure
On choosing the best design, I would recommend that you pick a design that best suits your requirements.
Nonetheless, you should consider things like content accessibility, installation design, storage space, and opening design.
These elements will help you determine which door design is suitable for your specific application.
Quality Standards of Free Standing Electrical Enclosure
Generally, the application of quality standards in this regard is to assure end users that the free-standing enclosure meets industry standards.
Due to the contents being electrical, these standards are put in place to ensure that safety is a top priority.
Therefore, before selecting and importing a free-standing electrical enclosure, look out for these markings to ensure that it meets the set standards:
A NEMA rating indicates that a free-standing electrical enclosure product conforms to the set NEMA specifications.
NEMA, in this case, is short for the National Electrical Manufacturers Association.
It gives specific guidelines that are to the greatest advantage of manufacturers and end users.
When shopping for your free-standing electrical enclosure, you’ll most likely note a NEMA rating assigned to the enclosure type.
Basically, there are 13 levels of NEMA ratings. Level 1-2, 3 or 3R or 3S, 4, 4X, 5, 6 or 6P, 7,8,9,10,11,12 or 12K and 13.
All of these are designed to ensure that enclosures are protected from weather conditions such as rain, snow, dust, dirt.
They also ensure protection against oil and splashing water.
Having a clear understanding of what these ratings mean is vital to buy a free-standing electrical enclosure that’s right for you.
Note that buying a NEMA rated enclosure will also ensure that your importation process is smooth sailing.
Otherwise, you’ll run into problems with your country’s customs authorities.
ii. IP 55 OR 56
Ingress protection (IP) rating shows that a free-standing enclosure product is designed to keep out solids or liquids.
Basically, IP ratings come in two-digit forms.
The first digit will indicate how best the product protects against solids intrusion and the second one against moisture.
In our recommendation, a free-standing electrical enclosure with an IP 55 or IP 56 rating is best.
An IP 55 will protect against limited dust ingress and low-pressure jets of water.
An IP 56 rating will protect against limited dust ingress as well as from high-pressure jets of water.
Both permit limited moisture ingress.
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances.
It is a requirement that restricts the use of hazardous materials in electrical products.
A RoHS compliant free-standing electrical enclosure does not use hazardous materials like mercury, lead, and cadmium in its build.
If importing free-standing electrical enclosures to any European Union region, it has to be CE compliant.
This means that it conforms to the health and safety protection standards set out for the European economic area.
UL marking indicates that a product conforms to the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) safety testing analysis standards.
It is a crucial quality requirement for products selling in the US. So, if you are importing to the US, you will want to ensure that your product has this mark.
Free Standing Electrical Enclosure Specifications
Every product’s specification preference varies from one end user to the next.
As such, it is vital that as you select free-standing enclosures, you pay attention to the needs of the end user.
Free standing electrical enclosure specifications – Photo coutessy: CUBIC
The following are the main elements that you should consider when selecting a free-standing electrical enclosure:
Manufacturers use a variety of materials to make free-standing enclosures.
Most of them, however, feature, aluminum, steel, and rigid, durable plastic materials.
Some may even be made out of wood to accommodate any equipment for which they are used.
A suitable free-standing enclosure will depend on the application, environment, and location in which you intend to use it.
In this regard, elements like weight, stability, durability, appearance, mounting options, etc. will significantly impact your decision.
The frame largely determines the stability and durability of a free-standing electrical enclosure.
Therefore, ensure that the frame material and design conforms to your style and preference.
As I said earlier, free-standing electrical enclosures feature two types of door designs.
The single door and a double door.
The single door is most common in smaller enclosures while double doors are more common in larger ones.
Depending on your available space, application and preference, pick a door that will serve your purpose optimally.
Of importance is to ensure that the door is easy to open, gives easy access to contents and is durable.
§ Roof Panel
This is merely the top part of the free-standing electrical enclosure.
It can be made from galvanized steel, aluminum, or rigid plastic.
They can also be removable or non-removable with some being a bit slanted to help prevent dust buildup.
All panels on free-standing electrical enclosures should be earthed to provide Earthing continuity.
Otherwise, it’ll expose users to shocks and at worst fire hazards.
Being electrical equipment, a free-standing electrical must conform to all possible safety standards.
NEMA, IP, UL, CE, and RoHS are the prevailing safety standards applicable to electrical enclosures.
So check to ensure that your enclosure is correctly rated for use in your application, location, and environment.
How big is your space?
It is vital to know the location where you’ll place the free-standing enclosure to be able to identify the correct sizes to buy.
You need to remember that free-standing electrical enclosure comes in various sizes.
Therefore, ensure that you know how much enclosure you need to avoid ‘overbuying’ or ‘underbuying.’
How much content do you need to enclose?
How far apart from each other?
Together with accessibility ease, these are questions that you need to ask yourself when shopping for a free-standing electrical enclosure.
You will come across enclosures that have a single, two, or more compartments.
The number varies depending on the needs of the end user. So be wise as you make your choice.
