Maximum protection for electronics

The Environmental Case System (ECS) is rated to protect devices from the elements present in outdoor and indoor applications. This two-piece system consists of an enclosure and a faceplate that create an IP67, NEMA 4X, and UL 50/50E rating.

The enclosure can withstand operating temperatures of -40˚C to 85˚C and UV exposure, and it reduces pressure buildup that occurs when an environment has rapid temperature swings. The faceplates are compatible with Phoenix Contact’s vast portfolio of IP-rated connections as well as customer-specified connections.

The ECS system can be mounted to a wall or to a pole using an accessory. >> Learn more
