The role of the electrical enclosure
The electrical enclosure is a large box that includes an installation's various electrical power distributions. The electrical enclosure has the same role as an electrical panel, it will protect an electrical installation and manage its energy.
The electrical enclosure is used for large-scale applications in the service sector, and construction or industrial sites. It is located in boiler rooms and rooms with lift machinery. Private homes do not have an electrical enclosure.
What does an electrical enclosure contain?
The electrical enclosure is composed of several distinctive elements:
- a metal or plastic structure that will contain the electrical or computer cables and wires,
- fixing systems and strips for hanging the various content modules;
- the different protection modules, remote control, etc.;
- an emergency stop button;
- an electrical surge protection device.
Electrical enclosure and vibrations
To protect the components it contains, the electrical enclosure must not be subjected to significant and/or prolonged vibrations. These could cause premature damage to electrical modules such as cables and wires stored in the electrical box. Therefore, the electrical enclosure must be suspended as well as sufficiently insulated. This will ensure that it is completely protected from vibrations resulting from construction activity.
That is why Paulstra has developed a range of anti-vibration solutions that counteract electrical enclosure risks and the vibrations that are transferred through the walls and floors. You will also find:
