APPLICATION IDEAS
Whatever your application, you can rely on
enclosures by
to meet the most demanding requirements for housing and
protecting components and devices. And we do it with functional, yet appealing designs that can enhance the value of your product. From light to heavy
duty industrial or marine environments, our family of enclosures secure and protect control components, DIN rail mount terminal blocks and circuit
breakers, switches, meters, printed circuit boards, as well as instruments and sensors.
Using state of the art machining, we can equip your enclosures with terminal blocks and other custom components to meet your special requirements.
Illustrated are just a few of the applications for our enclosures.

Smooth or Knockout Sidewalls
Materials
Smooth sidewalls provide for installation of custom
openings for wire, cable, conduit fittings, or mounting of
devices (TK, EK Series). Sidewall knockouts provide factory molded
knockouts conveniently positioned for wire, cable or
conduit fittings. They are quickly and easily removed by
pushing out after scoring.
Only flame retardant polystyrene, ABS or glass filled
polycarbonate materials are used to meet the requirements
of UL94 and VDE 0471.
Polycarbonate is suitable for temperatures up to 120°C
(248°F), ABS is rated for temperatures up to 80°C (176°F)
and 70°C (158°F) for Polystyrene. Polycarbonate is UV
stabile making it the appropriate choice for outdoor
applications.
Customization
Colors
Our enclosures can be factory supplied with custom
openings. Using state of the art machining, we can punch,
drill, mill or cut to your most exacting specifications. We
customize quickly and accurately, ... at a reasonable cost!
The standard color for the enclosure base is light gray.
Covers are available in gray or tinted transparent (TK, EK,
AK Series). Custom colors are available in production
quantities upon request.

Protection
Enclosure Mounting
Protection up to IP67 (NEMA 4, 4X) can be attained
depending on enclosure series and fittings selected.
enclosures by
can be mounted directly onto a panel, frame or other mounting surface through corner mounting holes, knockout holes molded into the base, or optional mounting tabs. Sealing caps for base mounted screws are included.
Note: Corner hole or flange mounting is required to maintain the NEMA 4X rating on TK and EK Enclosures.
Covers
Covers are available in alternate heights, in standard gray or
tinted transparent. Quick release, polyamide screws make
cover removal easy.

Combination Kits
EMI/RFI Coating
Enclosures can be combined to create layer units or special
configurations with the use of combination kits. The
combination kit ensures that the degree of protection will be
maintained. Refer to page 137 for ordering information.
The TK Series Enclosures can be EMI/RFI shielded. The
enclosures are internally vacuum coated with conducting
metal. This coating effectively protects valuable equipment
from electromagnetic interference and electrostatic
discharge.
Hinge Kits
TG Series Unique Design
Hinges maximize accessibility. They are supplied as kits,
complete with mounting instructions, hardware and a
mounting template. Hinges do not compromise NEMA or
IEC ratings when installed to factory guidelines or when
factory installed. Refer to page 138 for ordering information.
The TG series incorporates design features to make work
faster, easier and more efficient. All TG Enclosures have
integral cover retainers. This captive lid often eliminates the
need for additional hinge sets while keeping the lid close at
hand. Quick turn screws are optional on the TG series.
These screws feature 1/4 turn functionality for fast, reliable
access to the enclosure. A simple 1/4 turn releases the
screw, pushing the screw back in and another 1/4 turn
secures it.

DESIGN FEATURES
Seals
Mounting Plates and DIN Rails
A groove and lip type seal design is used on most series to
provide the highest possible degree of protection. The
seamless polyurethane seals are automatically injected into
the grooves, insuring consistent quality.
Mounting plates and DIN rails are supplied as kits complete
with screws and spacers where needed. Mounting plates
are used to attach components and devices having specific
hole patterns that do not match standard base mounting
provisions. Refer to pages 137-139 for specifying and
ordering information.
Having excellent memory characteristics, our seals will not
dry out, crack or deteriorate.
Fittings
Fittings are an important part of the enclosure’s sealing
system. To satisfy the appropriate NEMA and/or IEC
requirements, the proper fittings must be selected. For our
wide selection of Pg, metric and NPT fittings, refer to pages
138-140.
