For effective enclosure, the degree of protection is an important factor. The degree of protection is defined purely for the enclosure and should be maintained during the installation work, meaning that, for instance the IP class of the cable glands used for cable entries should be higher or the same as that of the enclosure.
IP code (European standard EN 60529)
All Ensto Cubo enclosures are designed for use in demanding environments. Their IP code ranges between IP55 and IP67. We have also made customer-specific solutions with an IP69K rating that covers high-pressure, high-temperature wash-down applications. These applications are dust tight and able to withstand high-pressure and steam cleaning.
IK code (European standard EN 62262)
The IK code for our thermoplastic enclosures ranges between IK06 and IK10.
Environmental type classification UL 50 E
Our enclosures are tested according to American environmental type classification by the UL. Environmental type classification is also known as NEMA classification. Further information can be found on the UL website www.ul.com.
