NEMA Industry Definitions (NEMA Standards) Where; Definitions Pertaining to Non-Hazardous Locations:

 

Type 1 Enclosures are constructed for indoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts and to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt).

 

Type 3 Enclosures are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts, to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt) and windblown dusty, to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow), and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.

 

Type 3R Enclosures are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts, to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt) to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow), and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.

 

Type 4 Enclosures are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts, to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt and windblown dusty, to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, and hose directed water), and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.

 

Type 4X Enclosures are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts, to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (windblown dusty, to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, and hose directed water), that provides an additional level of protection against corrosion, and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.

 

Type 12 Enclosures are constructed (without knockouts) for indoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts, to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt and circulating dust, lint, fibers, and flying), and to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (dripping and light splashing).

 

Type 13 Enclosures are constructed for indoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts, to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt and circulating dust, lint, fibers, and flying), to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (dripping and light splashing), and to provide a degree of protection against the spraying, splashing, and seepage of oil and non-corrosive coolants.

Information Specific to Enclosures
 

Electrical enclosures shown in our web site are designed for industrial electrical applications and as such should be selected, transported, handled, installed, and re-fabricated by qualified professional electricians. These products are not intended for resale or repackaging for household applications or use by the general public. All applications of these products should be in accordance with proper inspections, test approvals, warnings, notices, and instructions as indicated by Consumer Product Safety Regulations and all other applicable local, state, provincial, and federal laws.

 

The supplied enclosures built to the 3rd party specifications (i.e. UL, CSA) as noted in this web site. We offers no guarantee or warranty as to the applicability of our products outside these specifications. If you have any concerns about the appropriate enclosure selection for your application, please contact EID for advice regarding the variables in your particular situation.

 

Electrical Enclosures Two Design Styles

 

The application or use normally decides the style. For example, if frequent opening is required, the new 1/4 turn contemporary design is faster and easier than removing the compression clamps. If the application demands heavy equipment mounted to the doors or large cutouts that weaken the door structure, a heavy duty traditional style is recommended. We offers for sale a variety of both Traditional and Euro/Contemporary designs with various NEMA ratings, material types and features.

 

- Traditional Design
 

Traditional design is generally heavy duty or severe environment conditions.


- Euro or Contemporary Design
 

Euro/Contemporary design is generally used for appearance, ease of entry or for use with modular accessories.
