How Can You Safeguard Your Devices With Plastic Electronic Enclosures?

What is the need of having enclosures for your devices?
The most important reason is to ensure the safety of your devices. How many times have you witnessed a battery drain or disturbances while communicating with someone using one of your devices? If you have faced such instances, then it is high time you find out the causes behind them. Many of us will blame the manufacturer for giving us a faulty device that does not work up to our expectations. Have you ever considered any external factors that could possibly be held responsible for this? If your answer is no, then you are in for a surprise. 

The battery drain and disturbances are primarily experienced due to two types of interfering waves that go by the names EMI and RFI, which stand for Electromagnetic Interference and Radio Frequency Interference. These jam the signals emitted by your device. These waves may be present in any device and you may not be even aware of it. So, how can you protect your devices from it? You can use plastic electronic enclosures that don’t allow these waves to interfere with the communication signals of your devices, thereby giving you efficient transmission and reception.

However, there lies another problem. We all know that plastic is an abrasive material and the methods used for manufacturing it can cause harm to you although it will secure your devices. For this purpose, it is necessary that certain norms and regulations be in place to ensure that the companies manufacturing these enclosures give priority to human health.

There are two regulations. The first one is REACH, which is a European regulation introduced in the year 2006. REACH limits the usage of harmful chemicals used in the manufacture of plastic electronic enclosures so that the product does not contain more than 0.1 percent of the restricted chemicals.

The second regulation is RoHS that was sanctioned in the European Union in 2003. There is a misconception that this regulation refers to elimination of lead. This is not the case since the restriction applies to six materials. These include cadmium, lead and mercury. The remaining three are Hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated biphenyl and Polybrominated diphenyl ether. The presence of each of these materials should be restricted as per the RoHS regulations.

So, how important are these regulations for your wellbeing? Since plastic electronic enclosures would be used to eliminate the problems caused to your devices by EMI and RFI, the manufacturing methods of these containers have to be strictly controlled. The materials must be chosen with utmost care because they will be subjected to constant human usage. If there are any harmful chemicals associated, that will cause health concerns. Safety of human life is above everything. These enclosures will increase the life of your devices, remove any possible signal interference and enhance the performance of your devices.

So in future, if you come across any such problems from your devices, you can opt for such enclosures. This will guarantee you a safe and trouble-free operation of your devices.

Have you ever used plastic electronic enclosures to safeguard your devices? Were you benefitted by their use? Share your thoughts in the comments below and let the world know of the safety these containers offer.
