Heated enclosures for cold climes
Safety Technology International Inc. (STI), has added clear Heated Polycarbonate Enclosures to its Stopper line of protective covers. The enclosures, which protect keypads, annunciators and other electronic products, are designed to protect devices, components and sensitive units from vandalism and accidental damage as well as weather, dirt, dust and grime.
Built with a radiant heat plate that prevents LCD displays from
becoming sluggish or freezing, the enclosures are designed to maintain
a temperature above freezing, allowing the protected unit to be
installed outdoors, in freezers, unheated warehouses or storage units.
They offer a choice of 12, 16.5 or 24 volts and have three thermostats:
a control thermostat, over-temperature safety thermostat and a
low-temperature warning that can connect to a supervisory panel. The
enclosures, which are backed by a lifetime guarantee against breakage
in normal use, come with an external thumb lock or key lock and a
choice of two enclosed backboxes: Backbox A, which provides 4.25 inches
of depth; or Backbox F, which provides 2.0 inches of depth. The
internal clearance for the keypad or other electronic device is
5.5-inch height by 7.5-inch width. Mounting hardware and gaskets are
