NEMA 4X Enclosures are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts. NEMA 4X enclosures must provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (windblown dust); and protect the equipment inside the enclosure from from he ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, and hose directed water). Laslty a NEMA 4X enclosure must provide an additional level of protection against corrosion (rust); and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.
THe NEMA 4X enclosure rating is the gold standard for most industrial applications. These features provide robust protection from the elements and most artificial environments in hostile locations.
Although rated for indoor and outdoor installations, NEMA 4X enclosures protect against weather conditions like rain, sleet, and snow as well as liquids In addition, NEMA 4X enclosure protects against windblown dust and airborne particulates from the environment. This is achieved with a gasket cover and base solution, ensuring a dry dust-free environment within the enclosure.
Corrosion resistance can be a critically important property in many applications. The X in the rating denotes corrosion resistance.
