In the environments we create the box is a safety item. Flying lathe chips only have to enter the drive through the cooling slots once. Having recently seen one self destruct, I know I would sleep easy and not worry if I forgot to shut off the VFD if it was in a box. I have the capability of making one, I have a nice press brake, but sometimes common sense says you can't beat the chinese. So now I am looking at this oneI've been screwing my VFDs to the wall and running armored cable to them from both supply and to the motors. But at the VFD itself there's no good way to tuck away the conductors. Clearly these things need to be in grounded cabinets.
I'm not sure I need DIN rails in there as most of my setups are dirt simple - power in, power out, and one CAT-4 cable for control signals. I need at least 3 cabinets at this point.
Any good recommendations and sources for such cabinets?
The Mollem drive I bought to replace the burned one says :
The drive units must be installed in a fireproof cabinet with doors that provide effective electrical and
mechanical protection. The installation must conform to local and regional laws and regulations, and to
relevant IEC requirements.
