Understanding the Benefits of DIN Enclosures

Feb. 14, 2022
DIN enclosures are widely used in Europe and are growing in use in a broad variety of OEM systems across the world. These enclosures can be customized and fabricated to customer needs and specifications in OEM quantities.

DIN enclosures are made to incorporate specific sizes of printed circuit boards so that they are held securely in place. The PCB must be the correct size to mount properly in the enclosure. They are usually slid into PCB guides so your board may need to be modified to the correct size to fit properly. When choosing a DIN enclosure for an existing PCB you should look for a series that has a similar or larger PCB size as well as paying attention to the board layout and terminal configuration.
