Industrial Computer Chassis Selection Guide

1. What is the size standard of the Industrial chassis?

The industrial computer chassis is the chassis for loading the industrial computer, and its function is the same as that of the ordinary computer chassis. However, because the industrial computer needs to be used in a harsh environment, the requirements for the industrial chassis are higher. There are many industrial control chassis of different sizes and specifications on the market, so what are the sizes of the industrial control chassis?

Industrial chassis size mainly includes two aspects, height and length:

1. Height

Generally, it is measured in units of U. The height of 1U is 44mm, the height of 2U is 88cm, and so on. Generally, there are multiple specifications such as 1U-8U.

2. Length

There are two main lengths of the standard Industrial case, 450mm and 505mm. According to the specific requirements of customers, other lengths can be expanded, such as 480mm, 500mm, 52mm, 530mm, 600mm, etc. Generally, the length of the mainstream industrial chassis is in the range of 450-520mm. The extended industrial control chassis is mainly used to install a dual-CPU motherboard or provide expansion space. If a large cooling space is required, an extended chassis can also be used.

2. How to choose the appropriate size Industrial case

In many cases, the industrial computer is placed in a certain device or on the shelf, so there are strict requirements on the size. If the size is not suitable, it may not be installed at all. So how to choose the size of the industrial computer case?

Generally speaking, when choosing the size of an industrial case, you must first select a suitable installation location, then measure the installation size on site, and select an industrial case that meets the requirements based on this size. If you are not particularly clear or have special needs, you can contact the manufacturer to customize.

3. What to consider when choosing an Industrial chassis

In addition to size, there are many factors to consider when choosing an Industrial case, including:

1. Materials used for Industrial chassis

The internal and external materials of high-quality chassis are mostly galvanized steel plates, which have high deformation resistance, good corrosion resistance, and are not easy to rust. In addition, the thickness of the steel plate is also very important. If it is too thick, it will be heavy and cause waste; if it is too thin, the stability of internal parts will be threatened. Generally, it is more appropriate to be around 1.0-1.2mm.

2. The handle of the Industrial case

When the Industrial case is full of accessories, its weight is nearly 20 kg. The handle is used to move the case conveniently. The choice is also very important. You should choose the handle of high-pressure cast aluminum with non-slip rubber strips, which has strong load-bearing capacity, no deformation, anti-aging and corrosion resistance.

3. Appearance and structure of Industrial chassis

The appearance of high-quality Industrial chassis is carefully designed, and the design with reasonable structure, safety and convenience will be selected. In terms of internal structure, the design of the bottom plate tray for installing the main board is also very important.

4. Performance factors of Industrial chassis

(1) The industrial chassis should have electrical conductivity, so that the generated static electricity can be guided from the bottom of the chassis to the ground, usually with electro-galvanized sheet or sprayed with anti-rust paint.

(2) Thermal conductivity is also very important. The rationality of the heat dissipation structure is an important factor related to whether the industrial computer can work stably. Excessively high temperature will lead to system instability and accelerate the aging of parts.

(3) In terms of anti-seismic performance, when the Industrial case is working, the optical drive, hard disk, and multiple fans in the case will vibrate when they run at high speed, and the vibration can easily cause misreading of the optical disc, damage to the hard disk track, and even loss of data. Therefore, the anti-seismic performance of the case is also a key factor in the design of the case.
