POLYCARBONATE IN-BOX ENCLOSURES NOW WITH TRANSPARENT TOPS

The IN-BOX enclosure range has been extended with 16 new models in UV-stable polycarbonate with transparent top parts. Sizes range from 84 x 82 x 55 mm to 302 x 232 x 110 mm. The transparent top offers several important advantage:

  • Displays can be fitted directly on the PCB, e.g. LEDs for system status displays are visible from the outside
  • Additional assembly and material costs for routing and wiring of components are avoided
  • No need to machine the top part to fit a window or the display directly
  • The high protection class remains unaffected.
