  • NEMA DESIGNATIONS
    The National Electrical Manufacturer’s Association (NEMA) has developed a set of standards for the Electrical Industry  to assist the user and the manufacturer in the identification and the standardization of many electrical components.
  • NEMA Type 1– General Purpose indoor.  Type 1 enclosures are intended for use INDOORS, primarily to prevent accidental contact of personnel with the enclosed equipment, in areas where unusual service conditions do not exist.
  • NEMA Type 12– Dust tight, drip tight.  Type 12 enclosures are intended for use INDOORS to protect the enclosed equipment against falling non-corrosive liquids and falling dirt.
  • NEMA Type 3-Dustight,  Raintight and Sleet/Ice Resistant Outdoor.  Type 3 enclosures are intended for use OUTDOORS to protect the enclosed equipment against windblown dust and water.
  • NEMA Type 3R– Raintight and Sleet/Ice Resistant Outdoor.  Type 3R enclosures are intended for use OUTDOORS to protect the enclosed equipment against rain and meet the requirements of Underwriters’ Labs UL508 applying to “Rainproof Enclosures”.
  • NEMA Type 4– Watertight and Dusttight Indoor and Outdoor.  Type 4 enclosures are intended for use INDOORS or OUTDOORS to protect the enclosed equipment against splashing water, seepage of water, falling or hose directed water, and severe external condensation.
  • NEMA 4X– Watertight, Dust tight and Corrosion Resistant Indoor and Outdoor.  Type 4X enclosures have the same protection and provisions as Type 4 enclosures, and in addition, are corrosion- resistant.
