Where Should You Install NEMA 4X Electrical/Electronics Box?

Electrical Enclosure, Electronics Enclosure, Electrical Boxes, NEMA 4X Enclosure,

For indoor or outdoor applications where protection of components from dirt, dust, oil, or water are mandatory, OCC offers the new NEMA 4X Fiber Optic Enclosures. These enclosures are designed to protect fiber optic networking components against environments where corrosive materials, caustic cleaners, and hazardous materials are used.

This type of enclosure are designed to give protection to the fiber optic networking components that gives protection to harsh environmental components where there are existence of corrosive materials, caustic cleaners, and even harmful materials.

Essential Use of NEMA 4X Enclosures

Depending on the jacketing, the NEMA 4X Electrical Enclosures are primarily used indoors in an enterprise environment. There at least should be essential cables that are widely appropriate for some of the indoor/outdoor use and this is a good part of the fixed installation.

Light Duty Use of NEMA 4X Enclosures

When a NEMA 4X Electrical Box is utilized in some of the installations where manufacturing environments does not have corrosive materials in place, this is the light duty use for NEMA 4X enclosure.

Heavy Duty Use of NEMA 4X Enclosures

NEMA 4X electronics enclosure can be used in environment where there are huge concerns with different variations of temperature, rodents, and other contact with the corrosive materials. This type of enclosure is being utilized in some of the heavy manufacturing plants, wastewater and other water treatment plants and other substations.

Extreme Duty Use of NEMA 4X Enclosures

Extremely rugged and a great fit for harsh environments with extreme temperatures, corrosive materials, and repeated or sustained impacts. Used in military, mining, deployable broadcast, and oil & gas applications.

Primary of NEMA 4X Electrical Boxes

  • Complies with the rigorous NEMA 4X standard enclosure use for indoor and outdoor use. This also includes using enclosures in widely extreme environments.
  • Effectively protects the equipment from any water or solid ingress in any forms.
  • Have corrosion-resistant properties made for some of the strong molded fiberglass-reinforced polyester material that has a matching flat cover.

Did you know that the NEMA electronics enclosure description is very similar to the IEC Index of Protection (IP) code. Some of the NEMA designations are very descriptive and somehow general. The IEC IP codes tends to be more specifically defined by the 2-digit code.
