Eldon extends floor standing ­enclosure range

July 2018 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

Easy engineering and assembly are two of Eldon’s central development drivers. One recent example is the further development of the successful mild steel single and double door compact floor standing ranges, MKS and MKD. More standard dimensions have been added, while Eldon’s combinable floor standing accessories make it possible to engineer and build almost any indoor configuration.

The compact new enclosures have a four-times folded and seam welded frame and are well-suited for residential automation and control solutions, or for integration into larger processing systems or machines. The double door version, MKD, is especially useful in confined spaces, where a single door would take up too much space in front of the enclosure when the door is opened.

Many different available dimensions make it easier to engineer a solution that meets the requirements and eliminate the need for manufacturing special versions, which in turn reduces cost. The fact that accessories for the compact range are fully compatible with Eldon’s combinable floor standing range also contributes to making engineering and creation of the actual configuration easier and more cost effective. For distributors this makes stock keeping easier and cheaper. Profiles integrated into the enclosure design eliminate the need for dedicated accessories, which also help ease engineering and reduce cost.

Eldon has not only considered simplifying the engineering of a configuration, easy assembly and access to components are crucial as well. The MKS and MKD enclosures have roof, rear and bottom plates, which are removable to allow easy access when mounting components. Machining also becomes easier and installation time can be reduced. The high protection degree is not at risk, despite the removable parts.

These compact enclosures are often used in systems or on machines in environments requiring various certifications. The MKS and MKD ranges hold certifications such as CSA, Lloyd’s Register, CE, GOST, KEMA KEUR and cULus listed.
