Latest solutions provide new levels of protection.
Metal, non-meal—All NEMA-rated

Hammond metal and non-metal enclosures, including disconnect, stainless, commercial, console and other enclosure styles, rated NEMA 1, 3, 3R, 3S, 4, 4X, 6, 6P, 12 or 13, are available in wall-mount, floor-mount and freestanding form factors.

NEMA 12, NEMA 4/12, NEMA 4 and NEMA 4X enclosures are gasketed to add a significant amount of protection for indoor or outdoor use. Many door and window configurations and latch/lock options available.


Outdoor/indoor case system

To protect electronics from outdoor and extreme indoor environments, the two-piece, sealed environmental case system (ECS) creates IP66, IP67 and NEMA 6 ratings with a latch or screw-lock. ECS is also available with IP67-rated connections for solar, plastic circular, RJ45s, M12s or cable glands. A blank faceplate can be modified to accommodate any sealed connector that fits in the housing. Its polycarbonate (PC) construction withstands rapid temperature swings, UV exposure, and temperatures of -40 °C to 85°C.

Isolate line-side power for safety

Sequestr enclosures protect against arc flash by isolating line-side power from the main unit in an external, interlocked enclosure, which lets users do routine maintenance in the main enclosure without risking accidental line-side power contact. A padlocking handle restricts access to line-side power when disconnects or breakers are turned off. Sequestr is available in 10 mild-steel and stainless-steel models with variable-depth or cable-operated disconnect switches, and cover low-amp and high-amp disconnects.

I/O buildings not needed

Glass-fiber reinforced polyester (GRP) field enclosures protect against dust and water, and provide compact, passive cooling, which eliminate the need for large, costly remote enclosures or buildings. GRP enclosures simplify rollout of distributed control architectures by allowing field control equipment to be assembled and sealed during construction. They can also be made with embedded insulation to avoid temperature extremes, and use passive cooling in box sizes down to about 40 liters in volume.

Intertec Instrumentation
