Tips to Design Waterproof Enclosures for Your High Performance Products

26210_full-enclosure-assembly_shadow_
Waterproof electronic enclosures are a gold standard in virtually every industry. From smartphones and wearables to underwater cameras—customers are extremely concerned about the waterproof rating as it affects both performance and durability. Having assembled circuit boards for a wide range of applications, we highly recommend getting your enclosure design right the first time. This will avoid the risk of ruining an expensive prototype and delaying your product launch.
3 Important Considerations for Full Electronic Enclosure Assembly

  • Waterproof ratings – Engineers are often confused about what rating to look for in a waterproof enclosure. Typical “waterproof” IP ratings are:
    • IP65 – Protect against water jets projected from a 6.3mm nozzle
    • IP66 – Protection against powerful water jets from a 12.5 mm nozzle
    • IP67 – Protection against immersion/submersion to a depth of 1m

Our PCB assembly specialists suggest considering the environment in which your product will be used and then testing electronic enclosures for both static and water jet pressure to be absolutely safe.

  • Choosing a seal that works – Seals and gaskets create a barrier between housing and enclosure. Being a critical factor in water resistance, it is important to select one that will suit the product environment. Performance requirements such as water spray or submersion determine the sealing material, hardness and design elements. Custom designs and the right material can help achieve the desired compression and thickness while solving any shape-related problems.
  • Prototype assembly and testing recommendations: Select a lower resolution material to check aesthetics and test the fit and function of your prototypes. This can help reduce cost. For the waterproofing test, you will have to use high resolution materials to ensure proper sealing. For high pressure sealing, we recommend CNC machining. This will guarantee surface control quality prior to testing the prototype for water resistance.

WSI Digital Marketing has recently increased the SEO initiative for MorningStar Senior Living, a network of senior living communities located in the Western US.
MorningStar Senior Living provides various living options such as independent living, assisted living, memory care and respite care in 20 communities across six states.  They strive to create a true home where residents can enjoy their retirement years as carefree as possible.  Offering a lifestyle of comfort, wellness and community, the MorningStar team works diligently to give residents a quality of life surpassing that of other senior living communities.
After continued success with the first several MorningStar communities, WSI has now provided SEO for nine communities in four states. Recent efforts include MorningStar of Boulder, MorningStar of Sparks, and MorningStar at Jordan.
See examples of the on-page optimization here:
Sparks, Nevada
Retirement Communities Reno NV
Boulder, Colorado
Assisted Living Boulder
Assisted Living Communities
Senior Living Communities
Centennial, Colorado
Assisted Living Centennial CO
Senior Living Communities
Memory Care
The off-page optimization is ongoing for all of these communities.  In addition to registering the communities in various business directories, we will be expanding their online presence through customer reviews, as well as a shared blogging accounts for several communities.  These blog posts will have topics ranging from the features and amenities of the individual MorningStar communities, to those of interest to seniors such as keeping healthy.  See examples of some of the blogging activity on Tumblr, WordPress, Weebly and Blogger.
These combined on-page and off-page optimization efforts should move these new communities up in the rankings, just as it has for the other MorningStar communities. Monthly reporting will be conducted with the executive directors of the communities as well as the home office to keep them informed of the progress we are making.
