RTKB – 2 RTKB – 1
•Very high impact resistant glass fiber reinforced Thermoplastic – Polyamide
•Good chemical resistance: see data
•Degree of protection IP66
•Easy fit fixing tabs – (speed up installation and cut down frustration) designed for unistrut, ideal for flat bar, angle irons up to 80mm wide plus large flat surfaces
•3 or 5 entry options – easy to install and easy to terminate
•Enclosure labeling system
SPECIAL NOTE: To minimize the risk of electrostatic discharge, enclosures should not be fitted where they can be subjected to high flow of powder dust that may lead to a prolific charge build up being generated, e.g. pneumatic transfer of powder of discharge spraying. Reference IEC 60079.0:2011 clause 7.4.2. The lid shall have the following warning label applied.
Do not open when energized
Potential electrostatic charging hazard
Note: All cable glands and blanking elements e.g. stopping plugs, are separately certified Ex e Ex t as applicable with an ingress protection level of IP66 if fitted as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
