Protection where you need it

The Interscale cases are compact and robust enough for use in environments where electronics require protection, such as in laboratories and factories. However, they can also be adapted to outdoor use with the wall mount bracket. This accessory makes them suitable for applications like Wi-Fi distribution boxes, as well as electronic control boxes for mobile cranes or small-sized test equipment.

Test and Measurement for IIOT

Protecting test and measurement applications through the whole lifecycle of a product

Digitization and IIoT have been driving the industry for many years now, and companies are still in the process of connecting manufacturing machines on the shop floor, trains to maintenance management and cars to infotainment and their environment. Wirelessly connected devices are an enabler relying on real-time sensor data, but only valuable when connected, secure, and reliable 24/7.
With it comes a growing need for inspecting, testing and verifying these devices for reliability, performance, connectivity and long-time availability.

  • Wireless devices need testing against regulatory standards and operator-specific requirements.
  • For zero defects, tests in mass production for optimized test setups are necessary, with it comes for example demand for parallel testing, and low-cost instrumentation

Our single board enclosure platform Interscale is set up in a configurable way, to meet all application needs for testing devices in factories, on trains and train stations, or in cars.

Industrial Internet of Things

A Comprehensive Concept for the Configuration of Industrial IoT Systems

Digitalization spans from the intelligent networking of individual machines and devices to entire production facilities and their supply chain. Production is becoming increasingly complex, in many areas the lot sizes are shrinking, the variety of products is increasing, and the life cycles of products are getting shorter. This shift in demand and change in the market conditions drives the networking of machines, services, and people across the entire production chain. By collecting machine sensor data, connected factories can track and control machine operation as well as optimize efficiency, especially within challenging production environments, ultimately promoting growth and cost savings. Small form factor solutions can support this challenge and are already used in many sensor and gateway applications today to:

  • Control machines, gather data, tie machines to other machines and also to the cloud via the Internet
  • Automation, Analysis & Visualization, Monitoring, Communication

The configurable Interscale case concept developed by nVent SCHROFF enables design engineers to quickly configure solutions to enclose, cool, and protect their electronics for IIoT applications at a modest cost in a multitude of environments. It provides an end to end solution to connect and protect standardized and proprietary boards.
