Clear covers help preserve protection by avoiding the need cut holes in the enclosure for displays and indicators. To provide a long service life, the plastic is UV-stabilized for use in outdoor location and includes a UV94-HB flammability rating. For strength, the cover attaches using non-magnetic stainless-steels screws that thread into brass inserts.

Versatile Mounting

The enclosures are designed for versatile applications. Wall mounting holes are included. Some models come with molded mounting flanges, and optional external mounting brackets are available.

Easy Installation

The installation of components is simplified by a number of enclosure features. Internal bosses allow the horizontal mounting of printed circuit boards and the connection of terminals.
