US-based Polycase has introduced its new YH Series of NEMA-rated hinged electrical enclosures.


US-based plastic electronic enclosures manufacturer Polycase has introduced the new YH Series of NEMA-rated hinged electrical enclosures.

The company said that the YH Series is designed to protect components in the most difficult environments. The cover can be ordered as a screw-down style for prolonged submersion in water, or as a latched cover.

The electrical enclosures of the YH Series include stainless steel hardware, robust hinges and gasket, and an optional internal mounting panel suspension system. The enclosures are surface mountable with a choice of mounting feet or mounting flanges.

The new enclosures can be used in markets such as marine, communications, water treatment, utility, alternative energy, or in any environment where non-corrosive, waterproof enclosures are required.

Using its extensive experience in CNC machining, Polycase can apply cutouts, including threaded holes, to the YH Series enclosures and panels.

The new series meets NEMA type 1, 2, 3, 3R, 4, 4X, 5, 6, 6P, 12 and 13 specifications and IP68 of IEC 60529 requirements. Moulded from impact-resistant polycarbonate, the series is available in eight sizes ranging from 6in by 4in through 16in by 14in.
