hood
Explanation:
depends on what the thing looks like and what purpose it serves - I would choose cover, but only if it's a soft piece of equipment that's simply there to prevent dust settling on the machine. If it's there to protect from noise, for example, I would go for "hood", and if it's small, I'd call it "lid"
