Newark delivers affordable new custom enclosures from Multicomp Pro

A new intuitive online tool for Newark’s Multicomp Pro range enables customers to create affordable custom enclosures for demanding Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications.

Chicago – January 12, 2021: Newark, an Avnet Company and global distributor of electronic components, products and solutions, is now offering fully customizable high-end IP67 electronics enclosure solutions from its private label brand Multicomp Pro. Using a unique and intuitive online tool available on Newark’s website, customers can now create a custom enclosure in minutes, moving from prototype into full production from a single configuration.

IoT developments are growing exponentially as many companies look to tap into the benefits of the technology. Sourcing a suitable enclosure is often left until late in the new product design process which can present packaging challenges and impact performance. In addition to this, standard off-the-shelf enclosures are rarely suitable for mission critical IoT applications. Current enclosure options available to designers seldom offer the durability, robustness and protection required for the end applications. A cost effective, fast turnaround custom enclosure is the ideal solution for design engineers tasked with critical builds on a finite budget.

The online configuration typically takes around five minutes, saving engineers many hours of work sourcing approved components from multiple sources. Customers can now easily and efficiently source the required solution to support IoT and other mission critical applications used in Intelligent Transportation (ITS), connected vehicles (V2X, CV2X, RSU 4.1), rail track and tunnel monitoring, mobile security, smart cities and agriculture, and more.

Benefits of the Multicomp Pro customizable enclosure range now available from Newark include:

  • Quick quoting within 5 business days and delivery in less than four weeks.
  • Use of standard or N Type IP67 antennas to enable GPS/GNSS, Wi-Fi, LTE, DSRC and LoRa.
  • Access to a range of I/O modules including USB, Cat5, Cat6, SIM and power.
  • mSmart-box enclosure solutions providing a reliable IP67, EN60950-22-Ready, modular concept specifically tailored to needs within days of initial contact.
  • Enclosures are tough and hard-wearing, with integrated Gore® valves, Sur Tec 650 anti-corrosion coating and 100 per cent IP67 guaranteed.
  • Customization of color, cable length and more.

Gareth James, Senior Product Manager, Private Label at Newark, said: “This new offering demonstrates Newark’s continued commitment to our customers in the IoT space and ensures we deliver valuable solutions that support the design process. We recognise that our customers all have different requirements, and we can now offer bespoke, unique enclosures that can be configured exactly to their needs in a matter of minutes. The quick and intuitive online customisation tool is the most recent in a long list of new engineering resources we have added to our online offering. Our Multicomp Pro range is recognised as the engineer’s choice because it represents market-leading value for money without comprising on quality. Adding custom enclosures to our range ensures customers have access to tailored solutions to achieve their designs at the low prices they expect from Multicomp Pro.”

Newark’s Multicomp Pro brand provides reduced upfront and product-lifetime costs compared to other brands, making the range an ideal choice for equipping design and development labs, service facilities and educational establishments where budgets may be restricted. The range is also a suitable option for OEMs and CEMs seeking added value from sourcing lower cost, production-grade components. The Multicomp Pro range includes more than 60,000 products and is suitable for engineers at any level, with average savings of up to 30 percent compared to branded products.

Custom enclosures are just the latest in a range of customisation services offered by Newark, including custom cables and components, to make replacing obsolete or hard-to-find parts as easy as possible.

Multicomp Pro custom enclosures can be configured and ordered from Newark in North America, Farnell in EMEA and element14 in APAC.
