Throughout my life, Christmas has been my favorite season of the year. I love to snuggle and wear oversized sweaters, curl myself in very furry blanket, and do a ton of shopping for gifts. This season, also the people are much nicer! Or is it because this is just the season of giving that’s why everyone is so nice?

One of my fondest Christmas memory is of my mom. After having a furious frenzy of opening my Christmas parents, the result is having a room full of shredded wrapping paper, torned cardboard boxes, and gifts that are all stacked & became as tall as I do. My mom just gazed around the room with a very frustrated look because of all the mess.

She just raised a finger and put it on the tip of her nose, then he pointed around the room. Carefully inspecting and reviewing the presents that I just opened. After a few minutes, she gasped, ran outside of the room and she came back with arms full of shopping bags. She suddenly shouted, “I forgot some presents!”

I was still a child when this happened and I do not remember why what kind of presents are those but I do remember her facial expression. She was really excited to give me those gifts. However, this year, we decided to limit our spending budget and just give more thoughts on what we should give to each other.

With this gift memory of mine, I reminded recently of the article I have read while doing some research about a company’s enclosure customization services. The article was all about how a company was proud to have an additional CNC machining and printing on the master list of their services in some reasonable quantities. It popped up a question in my mind, “what exactly is a reasonable quantity?”

During my childhood, my family decided to buy 4 gifts to each person. For me this is fairly reasonable given our family history and what we do during the previous Christmas seasons, but to other people or families this might be too excessive. Especially to people who don’t even consider Christmas as a reason for celebration.

With this in mind, there are enclosure manufacturing companies that offers no minimum order quantity for electronic enclosure. It depends on the user if they want just 1 piece or if they want 5000 pieces. Just send the company a quote of your enclosure design to determine the sepcification that you will need.

What are the Proper Server Rack Requirements Needed to Protect Equipment from Extreme Conditions?

What are the Proper Server Rack Requirements Needed to Protect Equipment from Extreme Conditions?

I believe this has already happened to the majority of us, you have purchased a product that you really need for your project and you are more than willing to wait for it for a few days. Even weeks is acceptable to you. When it finally arrives, it looks disastrous.

Meanwhile, while it is very disappointing to receive a product that was not handled very well, wer are very sure that there can only be a handful of customers who can truly appreciate receiving their parcel in a very good condition. Whether through the delivery folks just having a bad day or there can be some uncontrollable forces. These humans are the people responsible to delivering the products on your front steps, smiling wryly while waiting for your cash to be received in exchange of the product.

The most efficient technicians are now long past trusting a corrugated box that is only worth 5USD. These boxes can protect thousands of their products – even thousands dollar worth of IT equipment – instead of utilizing a shock-absorbent rackmount proper packaging cases. These can come handy when delivery the rack servers together with sensitive pieces of rack server gear coming from one site to another.

There are companies who supplies these kind of server rack cases that are made with military grade materials and production standards.

These military-like cases are very ideal for the military field applications – they are portable, can be stacked, and most important of all very efficient & practical! The rail system that comes with it just slides right out like a file cabinet style. This enables the users to gain complete access to the equipment you are using while doing an equipment installation and just wiring a cinch.

These type of cases can meet the military and ATA specifications. There are companies that offers free shipping methods. Just inquire to the company you have seen it with for the full specifications of these server racks.

There are also all-purpose transport cases that are readily available in the market. They are great to be used for the trade show displays and they can be use to protect musician gear.

Server Rack Enclosures Produced in Asia

An engineer just recently returned from their annual quick trip in the Northeastern Asia. They had a hard time to assimilate all the wide variety of several issues – both in the economic and political aspect. There is one trend that has been repeatedly seen in the shift of direction especially in the Chinese government that is heading towards the military buildup and very far away from the manufacturing sector.

Our country has recently heard of the increased tariff taxes, decreased sales, and these factors has made a rise in the overall sense of concern. The Chinese manufacturers are not receiving parts of the incentives that they are supposed to receive. However, there are still growing businesses but few buildings going on. There is still an existing effort to latch on to any businesses as long as they can.

With this in mind, the engineers were really surprised at the increase in level of protection that is being seen in the improvements of the server rack. In today’s factory the engineers have saw a wide series of solutions that ranges from basic 4 post open cabinet – these are great solution to increase the maximum air flow for them to complete the server rack rooms.

The engineers have also seen the narrow panel space to achieve the maximum space utilization for those server cabinets that has the extra width to accommodate the cable waterfalls. The engineers have also seen the welded units, knock down units (manufactured for easier transportation), and seismic units. With this in mind, the majority of the ventilation that is coming from the perforated doors to curved doors were also installed.

The engineers were also able to see some of the cleverest solutions in terms of the cable management. Together with the plastic “teeth” these can be readily snapped in order to make these fit to accommodate the needs of the customer and it effectively covers to protect the equipment. This has made the thinking of the engineers to be able to fully recognize the several industries that continues on pressing on with the evolvement. Even if with this comes with the servers that continues to shrink, the applications of the equipment as well as the opportunities that may come can work with several server and continues to produce consistent results.

Even if there are products that were as large as the server racks, the market for these server racks are going global. The development of these industries are up to the manufacturers, to be able to continue in gleaning on the best innovations that can come around the globe.

How can a PCI Compliant Server Rack Enclosures Can Save Up a Lot of Space?

PCI Compliant, Server Rack Enclosures

The majority of the consumers does not consider or even think about the total safety of the personal information the companies can get when they purchase a product via credit card – even eating at a restaurant or checking in a hotel with your credit card can have the potential to take away your most valuable information. However, for businesses the privacy of their customers’ information should be their primary concern – and nothing else.

This is not only because the PCI Security Requirements for these companies should be fulfilled (as mandated by the major credit card companies) but also the importance of the security and safety of customer private information drives the U.S. economy at large. The major credit card providers that should comply to these are American Express, Discover, JCB, Master Card, and Visa.

The retail stores, restaurants involved and the hotels are having a hard time or difficulty of complying with these regulations because it is very expensive to keep up with the PCI requirement. This requirement tells businesses that they should have a highly restricted physical access to the cardholder’s data and valuable information.

The retail stores, restaurants, and hotels are very busy places most of the time. The personnel are in and out of the facility for the majority of the time and even the best security cannot check on everyone 24/7.

There is one way to do this – restricting the access area by constructing a separate data center of computer room. However the space that this computer area will take would cost lots of money and the money that would be invested in a separate computer room can be spent on other more important stuff such as floor displays, food preparation equipment, and dining area. Most often than not, managers tend to disapprove the notion of this.

However, there are companies that offers a very convenient solution but in a less expensive way. There are server racks that are PCI compliant that can house all the necessary servers, storage, as well as networking equipment in a space-saving manner. These server racks can be wall mounted, desktop, portable racks, or even freestanding. Every wall mounted server rack is manufactured to be tough made from solid steel with the aluminum frames and panels.

Every single door placed on the server rack enclosure does come with the standard and specific durable keyed lock. It is very important that the manufacturers of these server rack can offer enclosure with the tight-lock security in their enclosures as well as variety of space saving shapes and sizes. There are also different configurations that should be offered such as vertical mount, swinging door, server side mount and included is the corner configurations. This thing is important for the PCI compliance.

The manufacturer companies of these enclosures should be able to understand that the PCI compliance is a very important issue for the customers in the retail setting and of course to the hospitality businesses. That’s why now businesses should be keen in keeping their customers’ important information in a safe place.

Four Efficient Ways on How to Properly Select the Right Wall Mount Server Rack Cabinet

Air-Conditioned Server Rack, Server Rack

There are server racks can come in variety of options. There are also wallmount enclosures and cabinets widely available and this makes it very hard for the engineer to effectively determine what is the best sever rack for any given environment. In this article, we will discuss the five most important factors to help you determine which is the best cabinet to be used for your data center.

1. Determine the Cabinet Height Needed for Server Racks

Carefully identify the height that will be importantly needed for your data center. This is a very important aspect and a crucial starting point. Gather the equipment you are planning to install in your office and identify the number of U spaces needed and necessary for your server rack. The important information you need to know is that the “U Space” is practically equivalent to 1.75 inches. Make sure that you measure properly the size of your server rack. If in case you only need an 8U space right now, it is also important to consider adding more space for the future growth of your data center.

2. Determine the Wallmount Cabinet Depth for Server Racks

Given the minimum height that was already determined, the engieners can now concentrate on determining the internal depth of the wallmount. More and more server rack wallmount sizes are being manufactured and anyone can efficiently see a size variation of 11 inches that has 30 inches dep size. While your server rack can be only have a roughly 18 inches in depth, it is better to consider the minimum internal depth required for cabling which is worth 3 inches. An optimum 21 inch depth should be the least required internal depth.

3. Determine the Wallmount Cabinet Weight for Server Racks

After determining and finding the right cabinet that can fit the needs of your data center in terms of height and internal depth. Once the cabinet can efficiently hold the equipment purely based on its weight capacity, that would be ideal. There are server racks that can accommodate this need. In addition to this, you can install your server rack vertically. You might also need to install and determine the right server rack you needed if you are planning to install your equipment vertically.

4. Determine the Wallmount Cabinet Features for Server Racks With this in mind, there are unlimited variety of good features available in wallmount server racks. The right style of the wallmount can be properly fixed and it can also be swinging. In addition to this, this is also vertical, a NEMA 12, or any style anyone can relate to. If you need the ability to remove the side panels of the server rack, just tell the manufacturer. Also if you need your cabinets to have a lock and a key just tell them you would need these features

Flanged NEMA Rated Plastic Electronics Enclosures

My boyfriend has a slight obsession with Jordan shoes. He has at least 10 pairs sitting in his closet at any given moment. He knows months in advance when the next release date is for his favorite kicks and will stay close to a computer the day of so he is able to buy a pair before they quickly sell out.

Polycase has been anticipating our own release date for the flanged NEMA enclosures for several weeks now, and I’m happy to announce that they have arrived. These boxes won’t help you with your jump shot but they will help keep your electronics dry, as each enclosure includes an internal waterproofing gasket. We are very excited to have the new flanged versions of our WA, WC, and WP NEMA-rated series available.

If you have previously been purchasing our NEMA boxes accompanied by a NEMA flange kit, we encourage you to try the new flanged NEMA boxes. The molded-on surface mounting flanges are a convenient feature of this box.  The flanges allow you to mount the box to a surface without having to remove the cover.

In addition to the flanged series, quite a few of our customers had been asking for larger enclosures. We listened and took action by adding 3 new sizes to the NEMA family, the 40, 42 and 44. Our largest enclosures, the WA-44, WC-44 and WP-44, now reach 14 inches in length. And remember, our WP, WC, and WA series NEMA enclosures are all designed to IP65 of IEC 529 and NEMA 1, 2, 4, 4x, 12 and 13 specifications.

What Should be the Characters of the Ink that will be Used to Print on Plastic Electronics Enclosure?

Just recently, my boyfriend and I just spent a very long weekend to attend a out-of-town wedding. The family of my friend and our friends came over from all over the country just to attend her wedding. There were even English guests all the way from United Kingdom. This is the true testament that the wonderful couple are now finally getting married. People have spent time, money, and the effort just to be there for the celebration.

Before the wedding which was scheduled on a Sunday, there was a mandatory practice the Friday before for the wedding rehearsal. The amazing ceremony will be held at a riverbank park with the reasonable outdoor space reception just for the family. Sunday is a casual celebration and when Monday comes, this is going to be the celebration for the people who was not able to come to the wedding last Sunday. There were handmade decorations and pretty favors, the family style dining was good. There was good bear and the eclectic mix of music. Some guests might question the rustic appearance but our entire weekend was perfectly amazing especially for the happy couple.

With this in mind, knowing the characteristics are very helpful. Not only when working with other personalities from other people, but also this is very vital when dealing with certain chemical properties. Such as ink used for printing on enclosures. This is the type of ink used to print on pad for electronic enclosures. The characteristics does not only exhibit what the product is, but also what the material can be resisted.  

There are numerous characteristics that are necessary to have the permanent ink to be just like that: permanent. For example, if the customer wants the ink to be totally unaffected even if the enclosure is stacked on top of each other. Now, the stacked enclosures will not be damaged even if it is shipped because the right ink is used for the printing of the enclosure.

Or you can just imagine that there was a customer that wants to place something on top of the enclosure, if the ink was used was not the right one, there is a possibility that the graphics will be damaged. The abrasion resistance only means that the ink will not we wear in a way that it is completely gone by means of friction.

Over the course of several years with this type of experience, there are blog posts that are going to be explored using the different types of ink resistance that will be offered. Just feel free to comment about the characteristics or types of resistance you are looking for with your ink.

What are the Real Purpose of Battery Clips?

Just recently, there was a mishap happened in my kitchen: the garbage disposal bin suddenly backed-up leading my sink to slowly drain itself into the dishwasher. Then afterwards, it leaked on almost everywhere. This hilarious but stressing situation happened during night time and I only discovered the disaster happened until the next morning when I am about to grab my cup of coffee.

This is not the only disaster that has happened, when I got home from work the water from the accident caused my wood flooring to buckle. When I try to flatten down my floor, the wood flooring cracked. This is because the people who fixed my kitchen just glued the wood tiles on the linoleum flooring. Causing the pieces that were soaked in the water came up so easily. However, the rest won’t budge. I guess I need to replace half of my flooring.

With this in mind, when we have something to be permanently placed on a certain area, we should secure it permanently. Like my floor, I do not expect anything like that would happen. Another example of almost the same kind of scenario are the keyfob remote controls.

Even if the the keyfob controls are very small  – and even if they are – the batter holders can still bring a lot of damage if they go around and sliding inside the case. In order to prevent this from happening while keeping the integrity of the PCB board (and eventually avoid long lasting damage) the battery holder should be put permanently on the board through soldering.

This will make sure that the battery holder will stay very secured even if the keyfob just hangs from the keychain and is being swung around using a finger, or even thrown or juggled through the air with a mobile phone to save a falling cup of coffee.

Do you know how to properly solder things? Below are some very useful tips on doing this. While it takes some valuable amount of time and practice to use these methods and tools properly, soldering in basic terms is putting things together using a molten metal instead of glue sticks.

How to prepare the soldering iron:

•    Plug in the soldering iron and place it properly on its stand.

•    Soak the sponge on the water and dampen it and place it in the stand.

•    After dampening the sponge, wait for just a few minutes for the iron to warm up.

•    Once the iron warmed up, wipe the tip of the iron with a damp sponge.

•   Melt some metal on the tip of the soldering iron.

To start soldering, do the following:

•    By holding the soldering iron like a pen, hold it near the base of the handle.

•    Touch the soldering iron to the end pieces of the things that you will put together.

•    Feed the soldering metal unto the solder of the joint.

•    Gently remove the solder and eventually the iron unto the solder of the joint.

•    Inspect the joining ends closely.

A couple of weeks earlier, I have noticed that I have shed body weight. I was really hoping to lose a lot of this ever since I was a kid. Unfortunately, I was not able to purchase clothes that will look good on my new size. Therefore, while trying good clothes one morning, I had a bit of utter frustration because apparently, my fashion sucked and I looked like an old maid.

Right then and there, I totally decided that it was about right time to go on a shopping and buy the clothes that will really fit me. Now, we’re talking about the whole shebang of shopping for clothes: skirts, dresses, dress pants, jeans, capris, tops, and even shoes. I also decided to add some new clothes sizes that I was not able to wear since high school. Because of this, I love the idea of having expanded wardrobe in my closet.

With this in mind, the NEMA plastic enclosures available in some of the enclosure manufacturing companies will make you feel that you are going to totally love their expanded product line. Like my new wardrobe, there are NEMA enclosures that were just recently added on some of the companies’ product portfolios and these are now available in smaller sizes. It is now being pared down in sizes and there was a trim of 2.52” x 2.28” x 1.38”. They are widely available across all three NEMA product lines.

Several customers have lead to believe that they have already requested a smaller NEMA enclosure and they are totally excited when enclosure manufacturing companies tells them that there are new models available for electronic enclosures and they are available to be shipped now.

Because of these wonderful features, the older ones are retained and are still widely available. The gasket for dust and water-proofing enclosures, the stainless steel crews and the sturdy enclosure construction. The available optional cable glands and the mounted flange kits are also widely available for the new enclosure sizes. We are pleased to know that the expanded product lines are deeply going to help you out the rightful NEMA rated case enclosure that is the perfect fit for you company.

In conclusion, if you would like to have your enclosure customized, you can politely ask the enclosure manufacturing company to fix the problem for you. Most of the companies allows businesses to have a customized enclosure for them. Just make sure that the details are clearly communicated so that they will deliver you the best product as possible.
