EHELP: What is the Environmental Rating of the R-BOX?

EHELP: What is the Environmental Rating of the R-BOX?

Q: We have an R-BOX in a Class 1 Div 2 location with a 120VAC instrument inside. Is this enclosure rated for this atmosphere? It does not appear to have a very good seal for this environment.

A: The R-BOX was designed to meet a Type 4X and IP66 rating, which is suitable for housing a Div 2 approved device. The hazardous area protection is provided by the non-incendive nature of the Div 2 rated device mounted inside. The enclosure simply needs to provide protection from the ambient elements or other flying conductive material.
