Electrical enclosure range features pressure balance plugs
12 February 2010
Anixter Component Solutions has released five new ranges of electrical enclosures and four new ranges of ventilation plugs for use in these enclosures. There are more than 100 size combinations, moulded from high-performance polycarbonate and ABS materials, with options including opaque or smoked transparent lids, plus solid wall or integral knockouts for cable glands. Many of the enclosures provide ingress protection to IP67 and impact protection to IK08 and are rated for temperatures up to 120°C.
Available alongside the enclosures are various ranges of accessories including internal mounting plates, hinges, wall mounting screws, flexible conduit, cable glands, diaphragm gland plates and pressure balance plugs.
The four new ventilation plug ranges, covering sizes from M12 to M20, provide an IP69K-rated seal and are available in both nylon and aluminium. There are also four rates of air permeability per size: from 16 to 220 litres an hour. Ventilation plugs are permeable to gases and vapours but are impermeable to liquids and dust. They provide a means of balancing air pressure inside a sealed enclosure.
