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

Detailed Description

The ENC16/18's backplate is prepunched with half-inch-on-center holes suitable for attaching a datalogger, power supply, and a communications or measurement and control peripheral.

This enclosure is shipped with the 7363 enclosure supply kit that consists of desiccant, a humidity indicator card, cable ties, wire tie tabs, putty, grommets, screws, and PVC coupling. Additionally, Campbell Scientific offers a CS210 Enclosure Humidity Sensor for monitoring relative humidity inside of the enclosure. (See Ordering Info on the web page.)

  1. If you purchased a Stahlin enclosure from Campbell Scientific and it has a failed gasket, we can help you. We will need you to provide an image of the failed gasket, verify the size of your enclousre, and provide your contact information. We can then arrange to have a replacement gasket sent to you from Stahlin. For assistance, contact Technical Support at 435.227.9100.

  2. The ENC16/18 weighs 17 lb. Its internal dimensions are 16 x 18 x 9 in.
  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. Yes. Use a standard electrical box and outlet.
  5. 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.
  6. Our fiberglass enclosures can withstand very cold locations, and their fiberglass/plastic construction is very resistant to corrosion.
  7. It depends on the device. Most devices have built-in mounting flanges, but some items require a separate mounting bracket.
  8. There is not an easy way to calculate how much desiccant is needed in an enclosure or how quickly the desiccant will need to be replaced. The following conditions affect the replacement interval:

    • How much humidity the enclosure is exposed to
    • The size of the enclosure
    • How often the enclosure door is opened and how long the door remains open
    • How airtight the enclosure is

    It may be advantageous to use more than one desiccant packet at a time inside an enclosure. Campbell Scientific recommends keeping an extra supply of desiccant on hand for as-needed replacement in the enclosure.
