Detailed Description

Applications with minimal power requirements can use the ENC200 enclosure to house the datalogger and the pn 16869 sealed rechargeable battery. It is a very small enclosure.

The logger is secured to the ENC200 with screws and grommets; the battery is held in place with a Velcro strap. Five compression fittings are provided for sensor cable entry; there are also specialized connectors for a solar panel, antenna, and system ground.

Note: For a CR206X, CR211X, or CR216X enclosed in an ENC200, it is necessary to use an antenna. Compatible antennas are listed in the “Common Accessories” section of the Ordering Info page for each datalogger:

An antenna is not necessary for the CR200X because it doesn’t have a radio. An antenna is also not necessary for the CR295X because it uses a GOES satellite transmitter.

  1. Not including the connectors, the ENC200’s external dimensions are 6.7” x 5.5” x 3.7”.

  2. The 16876 (ENC200 & TW AC Power Transformer) is used with the ENC200 and 16869 sealed rechargeable battery. The 16876 includes a 20 ft power cable and a wall transformer. One end of the power cable attaches to the ENC200 power connector, and the other end attaches to the wall transformer. The wall transformer has a 6 ft cable that plugs into an ac wall socket. To use this transformer kit, ac power must be available at the ENC200 location.

  3. The 16869 sealed rechargeable battery is optimized for use with the ENC200. (Larger batteries won’t fit inside the enclosure.)
  4. The ENC200 can accommodate a CR200X-series datalogger and a 16869 battery. This enclosure cannot accommodate a larger battery, a larger datalogger, or any additional devices.

  5. The ENC200 ships with a 2 in. diameter U-bolt with two nuts (pn 17492) and a lock washer (pn 4366). Additional accessories can be purchased from the Ordering information area of the ENC200 product page.  

  6. 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.

  7. The desiccant should be replaced when the top colored dot on the humidity indicator card (pn 28878) turns pink; the humidity indicator card is included in the enclosure supply kit that is shipped with each enclosure. If the CS210, Enclosure Humidity Sensor, is used, replace the desiccant when the measured humidity exceeds 35%.
