Standardizing NEMA and IP degrees of protection in one solution

Enclosures for electrical equipment can be found in countless applications and  areas. In either case, they must be protected in such a way that the electrical equipment is not harmed and does not cause any harm as a result of the respective environmental and operating conditions throughout their service life. Two dominating standards exist worldwide for classifying the degrees of protection. This white paper shows the basic differences –  and that compliance with both standards in one product is entirely possible. This gives rise to increasingly standardized solutions that can be used globally.
