Protects 1/8 DIN instruments to NEMA-4 / IP67 from front
Model IPC fits all Laurel 1/8 DIN instruments as well as 1/8 DIN instruments by other manufacturers, provided that instrument dimensions in front of the panel do not exceed 48 x 96 x 15 mm (1.89" x 3.78" x 0.59"). Model IPC can be purchased as an add-on option for new instruments, or be fitted to existing installations.
The IPC assembly utilizes a clear base and clear door with a cam hinge. The hinge is captive when the base and meter are installed, and allows the door to be opened for easy access to the meter for programming or setpoint adjustment. The base can be sealed against the instrument panel by an O-ring or a self-adhesive neoprene gasket, both provided.
A capillary seal is formed between the door and the base by a tapered recess in the door and a tapered ridge in the base. Capillary action causes a small amount of water to be drawn in between the two surfaces, thereby producing a water-tight film around the sealing area. For applications where fluid residues are unacceptable, such as food processing, apply a light coating of clear silicone grease, or other approved sealant, to the mating grove to prevent any ingress of liquid and enable the cover to withstand steam cleaning.
The door is latched against the base by a locking tab when the door is snapped shut. Positive clamping of the door and protection against opening of the locking tab by hose-directed water are provided by a locking key, which remains in place to provide a much higher clamping force than the tab alone.
Model IPC is easy to install. It utilizes the existing 1/8 DIN panel cutout (45 x 92 mm). No new panel holes are required.
Suitable for 1/8 DIN instruments up to 160 mm deep.
- Meets NEMA 12 (IP52) when hinged door is snapped in place.
