2017 State of Technology: Workstations and enclosures

A modern approach to engineering plant-floor enclosures improves efficiency, reliability, safety and more.

They look simple, but paying attention to the details of designing and specifying plant-floor enclosures for workstations, controllers, input/output (I/O) systems and instruments can pay off handsomely in lower initial, operating and maintenance costs while improving operator efficiency and ensuring process safety.

Recent developments described in this Technology Update include better and more efficient ways to control temperature and humidity, choosing among the leading protection methods for hazardous areas, selecting the most efficient approach to enclosure modification and customization, and the increasing potential for reducing costs and standardizing enclosures using electronic marshalling.
