Non-Metallic Enclosures Meet Need for Satellite Communication Use

Wed, 04/13/2011 - 8:13am
AMCi manufactures systems that utilize enclosures for the housing and protection of a variety of internal components including: satellite terminals, cellular modems, radios, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Remote Terminal Units (RTU), data Loggers, terminal blocks and other assorted instrumentation.

These critical elements are subject to harsh environmental conditions in remote areas and consequently, must be safeguarded by extremely reliable, durable enclosures.

After reviewing the many available options, AMCi opted to use non-metallic enclosures to protect its systems. Why? First: Because metal is not as accommodating as non-metallic materials in terms of enabling electronic signals to transmit as freely as our satellite systems require. Second: Because the company’s systems are placed in extreme and remote environments, we did not want to risk needing to expose an antenna as would be necessary with a metallic enclosure. That would have made remote solutions more vulnerable to failure. Third: We were convinced that non-metallic enclosures ultimately provided proven durability that is essential for protecting our applications.

AMCi found success using Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures. The company has used several models of Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures for more than six years. These products have provided reliable durability in remote locations, corrosion resistance, configuration options, and of most importance, compatibility for enabling our systems to achieve effective satellite linkage. We now package our satellite terminals inside Stahlin enclosures.

These terminals transmit and receive with ease through non-metallic enclosures. Additionally, by using Stahlin enclosures we have simplified our packaging problems by mounting satellite communications solutions directly inside the enclosure, thereby reducing our total parts count.
