Overview

The ENC16/18 is a weather-resistant enclosure that is 16 inches wide and 18 inches tall. It can house a datalogger, a power supply, and at least one peripheral. This enclosure is recommended for applications that need to have multiple communication or measurement and control peripherals housed in the same enclosure.

Benefits and Features

  • Weather resistant to protect instruments
  • Two backplate options available so that Campbell Scientific components mount easily and securely (Differs from our other enclosures because you can choose between two backplates.)
  • White, UV-stabilized enclosure reflects solar radiation—reducing temperature gradients inside the enclosure without requiring a separate radiation shield

  1. The ENC16/18 weighs 17 lb. Its internal dimensions are 16 x 18 x 9 in.
  2. Yes. Use a standard electrical box and outlet.
  3. Most likely, yes. The datalogger is protected against electrical noise, and 60 Hz filtering can be selected in many sensor measurements to filter out the effects of 60 Hz noise.

  4. The terminals do not need to be replaced. Just sand or file the corrosion away, exposing clean copper, and the fittings will continue to be functional.
  5. Our fiberglass enclosures can withstand very cold locations, and their fiberglass/plastic construction is very resistant to corrosion.
  6. Backplates are available in sizes designed to fit in Campbell Scientific enclosures: 10 x 12 in., 12 x 14 in., 14 x 16 in., and 16 x 18 in.
