For employment by factory maintenance technicians and electrical installers, the extended range of enclosures now offers new units constructed from fibre-glass-reinforced plastic, moulded by hot compression techniques. All the enclosures are supplied in a light grey colour (RAL 7035) and come with a galvanised-steel backplate and wall-mounting fixings. The units are particularly useful for transportation applications.
These lightweight units provide easy installation and are supplied with an anti-intruder hinge system and wide door opening – up to 180-degrees – with reversible door for left or right opening. The units also provide more than ten years of life under standard environmental conditions and without any maintenance necessary.
The halogen-free units have been constructed to withstand the 960C glow-wire test and are double insulated to stop electrical contact risks. The units are supplied with a certification of compliance to IEC62208 for empty enclosures for employment with low-voltage switchgear and control-equipment assemblies. They are ideal for indoor and outdoor use and give protection to IP66 as part of the EN60529 standard.
