Protective cases: Solar Battery Housing for Marine Use

by | Aug 15, 2012

Protective cases mean resistance to the elements

In the picture to the right, the protective case has been designed into a solar battery system that is used in a marine application.   The whole system is used as a buoy marker on the great lakes. One significant upside to using the S3 cases is that we use #316 Stainless in our hardware so the steel pins will not rust. As you can see this is a rather innovative way to use our cases.

Shock, vibration, dust,  water resistance are all handled by the T5500 case.  Water resistant cases aren’t only meant to be on a boat. The T5500 protective case is a bit more roomy than the T5000 by two inches. These water resistant cases have been used to house solar batteries, 35 mm cameras with additional lenses, and studio condenser microphones.   The superior design of these water resistant cases also protects contents from impact and dust.

As an engineer, you get the following benefits from designing-in a protective case:

  • Your product or instrument is protected in shipment and as your users transport it.  This could significantly reduce damage and warranty issues for your product.
  • Protective cases designed into an application or instrument become part of your product.
  • Your customers will infer a greater level of quality and value from products with protective cases around them.
  • The case foam is the key ingredient we can design with you to get maximum protection.
  • It is made in the USA, therefore easier to specify for Government applications.

Protective cases like the T5500 enhance value for your products and help you reduce warranty costs.
