5G Friendly Enclosures

Fibox Non-Metallic Polycarbonate Enclosures  for 5G Applications

With the advent of the 5G revolution, the interconnection of industrial plants, equipment, and personnel is crucial! The networking needs of tomorrow require enclosures that can withstand greater demands than ever before. Fibox’s NEMA 4X wall-mounted cabinets and enclosures are the answer to these growing questions, providing optimal protection for radio modems and other telecommunications devices.

Less is less and so much more

Weighing less than same-sized metal or fiberglass counterparts, yet tougher and more robust. Fibox’s NEMA 4X hinged, lockable ARCA – IEC, and ARCA – JIC, cabinets and NEMA screw cover boxes are the perfect answer for demanding applications. Designed for hostile locations including ambient temperatures ranges of -40 to + 175dgrees Fahrenheit!

Molded in glass-reinforced polycarbonate, a robust thermoplastic that offers years of worry-free field life. The significance of Fibox’s polycarbonate is its radio transparency; freely allowing radio waves to pass through without additional hardware. Equally important is the secure, physical protection of sensitive internal components from vandalism, high impacts, and the ingress of foreign objects or water.

Wi-Fi Friendly = 5G saving

When integrating Wi-Fi or other radio applications inside a lockable NEMA 4X enclosure, you eliminate the need for an external  antenna.

Not all polycarbonate formulas are the same. Fibox polycarbonate enclosures offer the highest UV resistance on the market. Our polycarbonate took part in an independent ISO 4892-2 (accelerated weathering test) utilizing a xenon arc lamp. Fibox’s enclosure materials were bombarded with high-intensity UV light for over 5,000 hours simulating 25 years’ worth of direct sunlight exposure. In conclusion the results demonstrated that the Fibox polycarbonate outperformed both, the fiberglass and, other polycarbonate materials in the test.

Other factors to consider include; Fibox polycarbonate is considerably more durable and flexible than metal or fiberglass enclosures. As a result, Fibox polycarbonate enclosures will not dent, blister, rust, crack, or delaminate in the field as compared to a metal or fiberglass boxes.  Also, Fibox offers clear cover options for most series of enclosures and cabinet enclosures, thereby giving you a larger viewing area.

Finally, you can easily modify your Fibox polycarbonate enclosures in the field or factory floor with conventional tools. Of particular note, many Fibox non-metallic polycarbonate enclosures have pre-formed knock-outs. Removing the knock-out only requires a hammer and a flat head screwdriver.  Check out out NEMA cable management solutions for more information!

Custom 5G Enclosures

All Fibox NEMA enclosures can be customized to meet your application requirements.  Fibox USA maintains a customization facility, staffed with application engineers, CAD, and CAM programmers, and uses modern CNC machinery specially designed and built for precision plastic machining. As a result, Fibox can cuts holes, cutouts, recesses, and more. Enclosures can be laser printed with nomenclature, photo-quality images, and text. Fibox stocks and can install accessories, resulting in the delivery of a completed mechanical assembly.
