How can I fit multiple devices in an enclosure?

Often Brainboxes products are installed in a cabinet or enclosure. Sometimes this means there isn’t a lot of space to fit everything in.

This can be a great way to protect your wiring from difficult environments , ingress and water damage, or just from the hustle and bustle of the factory floor.

One way lots of engineers choose to install our standard range products is to stack them.
