L-com Global Connectivity, a manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has released a new series of weatherproof enclosures with user-adjustable thermostats.
The 1HFA-series enclosures are constructed from molded, halogen-free, self-extinguishing, fiberglass-reinforced polyester and are suited for hot and cold environments. These 120V AC industrial enclosures feature built-in heating and cooling systems with a user-adjustable thermostat that incorporates two separate thermostats, allowing independent control of heating and cooling. The thermostat provides a temperature range of +32°F to +140°F for both the heating and cooling systems.
The heat thermostat features a normally closed circuit. When the temperature falls below the thermostat setting on the heat adjustment dial, the circuit closes, which turns on the heater. Once the temperature rises above the heat thermostat setting, the circuit opens, which turns off the heater.
The cooling thermostat features a normally open circuit. The circuit closes and turns on the cooling fan when the temperature rises above the thermostat setting on the cooling adjustment dial. The circuit opens when the temperature is lowered below the thermostat setting, which turns off the cooling fan.
The enclosures include an aluminum mounting plate with surge-protected duplex 120V AC outlets and a terminal block for easy hook up to the externally provided line power. They are currently available in 14x12x7-inch, 18x16x8-inch and 20x16x11-inch sizes.
