Tightness is ensured by a secure enclosure design with double sealing at the top and bottom edges of the door provided by an integrated rain protection strip made of robust material resistant to temperature and UV emissions. At the same time, the new Ex enclosures simplify interior installation and offer far more mounting options. Numerous mounting bosses in the enclosure make interior installation easy. They allow system accessories such as punched sections, bars and rails to be screwed to the inside of the enclosure quickly and directly. Door-operated switches and door stays can also be directly attached to the mounting bosses. Moreover, DIN rails in the enclosure can be screwed directly onto the existing mounting bosses. The mounting plate can be easily screwed from the front using the pre-assembled bolts and even be earthed later via the existing machined keyhole. Besides this, wall mounting is easily implemented via the external threaded inserts while retaining UL certi cation and the protection class. The new AX plastic Ex enclosures come in eight versions ranging from 200 to 800 mm wide, 300 to 1,000 mm high and 150 to 300 mm deep. Rittal’s product range also includes Ex enclosures made of stainless steel. Ex enclosures are used in re neries, drilling platforms, oil tankers, pipelines and infrastructure applications revolving around LNG, hydrogen, for example. They are also used where ne dust can be generated that may ignite, such as in mills or large bakeries.
