The PN-A Series of enclosures increase the protection on Bud’s widely used PN Series of polycarbonate plastic boxes to NEMA 6P and IP68. The PN-A enclosure keeps electronic components dry even when the box is completely submerged in water.
“The new PN-A Series has been tested to withstand being submerged under three meters of water for an hour,” said Blair Haas, Bud Industries CEO.
The new series of plastic boxes was developed for applications ranging from marine, wastewater, and agriculture to pools and spas. Because they also protect components against water spray and weather, they provide added confidence for little additional cost in data communications (wi-fi), factory automation, and mining.
The PN-A Series enclosures are designed to meet the requirements of IP68, UL508A, NEMA 1, 2, 3, 4, 4x, 6, 6P 12, and 13. They are UL Listed. They are available in 15 sizes ranging from 2.05×1.97×1.30 in to 11.81×9.06×3.41 in.
The boxes are molded of corrosion-resistant polycarbonate plastic and feature an opaque or clear cover. Clear covers help preserve protection by avoiding the need to before cut holes in the enclosure for displays and indicators. To provide a long service life, the plastic is UV-stabilized for use in outdoor locations and includes a UV94-HB flammability rating. For strength, the cover attaches using non-magnetic stainless-steel screws that thread into brass inserts.
The enclosures are designed for versatile application. Wall mounting holes are included. Some models come with molded mounting flanges, and optional external mounting brackets are available.
The installation of components is simplified by a number of enclosure features. Internal bosses allow the horizontal mounting of printed circuit boards and the connection of terminals. Most models have internal guide slots for mounting PCB assemblies vertically. Optional aluminum internal mounting-panels (PNX Series) are available.
PN-A Series plastic enclosures are available from the top industrial electronic distributors’ stock at prices starting at $4.15 with quantity discounts available.
