New UL-listed polycarbonate enclosures join the standard Altech® product line to protect control and measuring equipment against dust, water, and corrosion in the harshest operating environments.  Their introduction provides users with the widest selection of UL-listed enclosure sizes available in the industry.

These small- to medium-size enclosures consist of two unique styles (TK Series and EK Series).  Both are rated up to IP65 (NEMA 4X) and their compact designs contribute space-saving benefits.

The TK Series includes 13 different enclosures with several cover heights (overall sizes range from 50x52mm to 360x254mm).  Standard features include gray or tinted transparent covers, a low base and multiple fixing points ideally suited for printed circuit boards, and sidewalls and endwalls supplied smooth or with knockouts.

The EK Series will typically house IEC components, such as DIN rail mount circuit breakers, switches, meters, and other control devices.  Their unique covers integrate a shrouded cut-out and transparent hinged doors to allow for quick access and visibility of components.  Overall sizes for these types range from 130x94mm to 361x254mm.

Among options, EMI/RFI shielding can be specified to protect sensitive electronic components and custom versions can be developed to meet particular application requirements.
