RS PRO enclosure range extended
17 July 2020
RS Components has expanded its RS PRO portfolio of enclosures designed for industrial applications to include fibre-glass-reinforced plastic units ideal for deployment in harsh industrial environments including transportation.
For use by factory maintenance technicians and electrical installers, the expanded range of RS PRO enclosures now features new units manufactured from fibre-glass-reinforced plastic, moulded by hot compression techniques. All the enclosures come in a light grey colour (RAL 7035) and are supplied with a galvanised-steel backplate and wall-mounting fixings. The units are especially ideal for transportation applications.
All of the lightweight units offer easy installation and come with an anti-intruder hinge system and wide door opening – up to 180ºC – with door reversibility for opening on the left or right. The units also offer more than 10 years of life under standard environmental conditions and without any maintenance necessary.
The halogen-free units have been built to withstand the 960ºC glow-wire test and are double insulated to prevent electrical contact risks. The units come with a certification of compliance to IEC62208 for empty enclosures for use with low-voltage switchgear and control-equipment assemblies. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and provide protection to IP66 as part of the EN60529 standard.
The expanded range of RS PRO enclosures is shipping now in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions. The RS PRO branded portfolio from RS includes a choice of more than 66,000 proven quality and high-value products across all applications and industries.
