Fiberglass Infused Plastic NEMA 4 Enclosure Shows Superior Strength

12 August 2015

Bud Industries has unveiled the PTQ Series enclosure—an IP67 and UL NEMA 4 and NEMA 6 rated box with a latching lid. Made of polycarbonate plastic infused with 10 % fiberglass, the box features exceptional strength, impact resistance and tight tolerances.

Applications where the NEMA-rated enclosure protects electrical and electronic designs include the factory floor where equipment wash downs are necessary, in outdoor dusty and corrosive environments, and even where temporary submersion may occur. The enclosure houses machine controls, Wi-Fi and radio equipment, lighting, and access controls.
