              Dear Mr. Haas,

               

              I'm currently working on a power conversion device for a large automotive application. The power converter is positioned on a place where the climatic conditions are far from ideal. I need the select a type of enclosure for the following conditions:

               

              Temperatures surroudings : -40C +65C.

              Air surrounding enclosure: moist, sand, salt.

              High pressure water hose cleaning proof (chemicals and waterpressure).

              Shock and Vibration force: > 15G

               

              The device is not water cooling, but by forced air. The air tunnel can be on the outside of the cabinet. The fans can be in a somewhat less difficult environment.

              There has to be an opening on the from but only needed for service engineers. No hinges or others needed.

               

              The volume is about: Width=30cm, Depth=40cm, Height=65cm

               

              Can you recommend: type of material, IP-rating and system of sealing?

               

              Thanks in advance

               

              Best regards, Enrico Migchels

                Hi Blair,

                I'm a Noob, just signed up, and it said you were the robotics guy, so this is not an enclosure question.  I am the director of a small library in a small village.  I have some funding (and am writing grants for more) for a rockets and robotics program for the village teens.  I have two toy robots to convert to FA (Buster and Wall-E).  My plan was to use EZ Roobots kits, inorder to make the conversion.  I am brand new to actually doing robotics, I've only read some bits and pieces, and am working on the Robot Builders Bonanza and Robot Building for Beginners.

                 

                Is it best to purchase a kit and go that route, then learn Arduino and work on the next bots using that?  The kit seems to be a good value, and I dopn'ty have much info on what I really need to buy other than I know I need IR sensors for distance, battery pack, camera for the eye, servos to control the arms and tractor drive, motors to actually turn the wheels and gears for movement, and of course a breadboard/board.  This might be oversimplifying, but since I will be learning along with the teens, I feel a kit is a good starting point.

                 

                My hope is that I can ispire one or two kids to actually go into robotics and bring their degrtee and some manufacturing back to the village.  I also hope that we move from converting toys to creating some small battle bots, or enter in some of the robotics challenges.  To that end, I am hoping to write a grant one day that includes a ShopBot CNC machine.

                 

                Any advice you or the others can share would be welcome.

                Thanks so much.

                  Yo Blair,

                   

                   

                  I am abit like Kent Barnard, more about the robotics than the enclosure and i am only new at this.

                  I was wondering if you could suggest come useful tutorial to be that i could begin with.

                  I am confident in programming i have just recently learnt the Arduino programming lanaguage

                  and Processing suggested byJeremy Blum when i first joined.
