Beefed up line of weatherproof polycarbonate NEMA enclosures

21-03-2024 | Transtector | Industrial

Transtector has expanded its line of UL-listed polycarbonate NEMA enclosures. The new indoor/outdoor boxes include built-in power outlets and thermostat systems. They protect equipment from theft or damage and are excellent for rapid deployment, corrosive environments, hotspot applications and remote wireless LAN Wi-Fi setups.

The new enclosures comprise almost two dozen models. They are supplied in two sizes, two ingress protection levels, two colours, and with either a cooling fan and a heater or just a cooling fan. Size choices are either 14" (h) x 12" (w) 6" (d) or 18" x 16" x 10".

These new indoor/outdoor enclosures are rugged and secure enough to protect critical equipment. They are UL-listed and constructed of high-impact, UV-resistant polycarbonate. Their lids feature a non-metallic hinge system that provides quick removal and can be re-attached just as quickly without needing tools. They come with a pair of stainless-steel latches with padlock eyes so that locks can be attached to prevent tampering.

All the new enclosures are weatherproof and heat-resistant, with IP ratings that keep their insides dry under falling rain. The NEMA 3R models are rated IP24, guarding against splashing water from any direction and ice formation. The NEMA 4X models are rated IP66 to keep out rain, sleet, snow, splashing, and hose-directed water. They are also dust-tight and corrosion-resistant. Four included lid screws allow a NEMA 6P IP68 rating, though any openings would need to be correctly sealed with an IP68 plug, gland, or coupler.

Inside each enclosure, an aluminium mounting plate holds surge-protected duplex 120VAC outlets and a terminal block for easy hookup to externally supplied line power. The heated and cooled units include a solid-state thermostat-controlled fan and a 200W heater, while the cooled-only units have a thermostat control for the fans.

The enclosures can be mounted to any flat wall with the included brackets installed. The brackets also allow the use of one of the company's optional pole-mount kits. The bottom of each enclosure has holes for two N-bulkhead lightning protectors or connectors, a grounding lug, and a cable conduit connector.
