Enclosures for Agriculture
Farming has evolved from humanity’s earliest days, but two things are as true today as 5,000 years ago: farming is demanding work, and your equipment must be protected from the elements.
For agriculture instrumentation, control product applications, and applications in harsh locations, Fibox offers NEMA 4X polycarbonate enclosures with superior durability, corrosion resistance, and impact resistance. These enclosures protect electrical and electronic equipment from harsh environmental conditions like dust, water, and chemicals.
For Indoor & Outdoor Applications
The non-metallic polycarbonate material in Fibox enclosures is lightweight yet extremely strong, making it ideal for rugged outdoor applications. Their NEMA 4X rating ensures protection against ingress of water, dust, and other potentially harmful materials. The creation of a secure airtight environment makes these enclosures ideal for use in agricultural settings where moisture and dust are prevalent.
Fibox enclosures are also UV-resistant, meaning they can withstand exposure to harsh sunlight or high-powered UV lamps 24/7 without deteriorating.
Enclosures for Controlled Environments
In Controlled Environmental Agriculture (CEA)—where crops are cultivated in controlled environments such as greenhouses, vertical farms, and indoor grow rooms—maintaining optimal environmental conditions is essential for ensuring healthy plant growth and maximum yield. One of the biggest challenges is managing humidity levels, which can promote the growth of mold and mildew and damage sensitive electronic equipment.
Fibox’s water-tight polycarbonate enclosures are ideal for CEA because they:
- Do not corrode or rust, even when exposed to high humidity or moisture. The non-metallic, UV-resistant polycarbonate material safely and securely houses electronic equipment without risk of damage due to rust or corrosion.
- Offer excellent temperature resistance, making them suitable for hot and cold environments.
- Are resistant to various chemicals, including fertilizers and pesticides commonly used in agriculture, making them ideal for protecting electronic equipment in CEA applications.
- Allow for the free transmission of radio signals for wireless controls and remote monitoring without the need for an external antenna.
