Models BOX1 is a wall-mount / bulkhead enclosure which provides environmental protection to IP65 / NEMA-4X for an 1/8 DIN instrument. It comes with a 1/8 DIN (45 x 92 mm) panel and accommodated instruments up to 134.5 mm (5.30") deep including connectors. This includes all 1/8 DIN instruments by Laurel Electronics and most 1/8 DIN instruments by other manufacturers.
The instrument compartment is sealed on all sides. The two clamshell halves of the case are joined by an O-ring. The rear mounting holes are outside of the sealed compartment. Captive stainless steel screws and high-impact polycarbonate provide durability.
The panel cutout can be expanded by the user up to 150 x 71 mm (5.90" x 2.80") or 131 mm x 110 mm (5.16" x 4.33") to accommodate instruments larger than 1/8 DIN. Internal molded standoffs with a height of 6.5 mm (0.25") can be snipped off by the user if required.
Cable feedthroughs are via three sealed cable glands at the bottom of the case. These make a tight seal with round cables from 6.1 to 1.00 mm (0.04" to 0.24") in diameter. Note that these feedthroughs are not compatible with off the shelf cables with molded connectors, such as USB cables.
Environmental Protection to IP65 / NEMA-4X
If the front panel of the instrument already provides environmental protection to IP65 / NEMA-4X from the front, such as the Laureate Series, then the entire instrument will be protected IP65 / NEMA-4X once it is installed in Model BOX1.
If the front panel of the instruments does not provide environmental protection, but the instrument fits in a 1/8 DIN panel cutout (45 x 92 mm), Model BOX1 may be ordered with the IPC Splashproof Cover as Model BOX2, illustrated to the right. The combination of Models BOX and IPC will provide IP65 / NEMA-4X protection to 1/8 DIN instruments regardless of manufacturer, provided that the instrument depth is less than 134.5 mm (5.30").
