The PWENC16/18 is a prewired, weather-resistant enclosure that is 16 in. wide and 18 in. tall. It starts with the same enclosure used for our ENC16/18, but then is factory configured with up to 19 connectors that are attached to the data logger or peripherals within the enclosure. Sensors with the appropriate connector are simply attached to connectors on the outside of the enclosure. The PWENC16/18 includes a basic measurement program (created in ShortCut) for the -PW products sold as part of this system. If a more advanced custom data logger program is required for additional sensors, communications, control, or other needs, an extra fee will be incurred.Read More
The PWENC16/18 can house one data logger, power supply, and one or more peripheral (depending on the peripheral’s footprint). You order the sensors, data logger, power supply, and communication peripherals separately. Compatible sensors, peripheral cables, and solar panels have a –PW extension.
The PWENC16/18 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. Connectors, communication ports, and the enclosure mounting bracket are chosen as options. (See Ordering Info on the web page.)
The PWENC16/18 can be mounted to any of our tripods or towers, or to a user-supplied pipe.
Note: Refer to the Ordering Info on the web page for standard configurations. Nonstandard configurations must be special ordered. It is considered a nonstandard configuration when using a different type, size, or location for any connector, communication port, conduit, cable entry seal, or antenna bulkhead (contact Campbell Scientific for more information).

Note: The following shows notable compatibility information. It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible or incompatible products.
Our prewired enclosures can house any peripheral that our standard enclosures can house. Equipment that can be attached to the outside of the prewired enclosure include:

Components can be easily replaced; however, it may be necessary to do some rewiring and system reprogramming. For assistance with rewiring and reprogramming, contact Campbell Scientific.
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 enclosure, 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.
Yes. The sensor side of the connector is pn 22018, and the receptacle side is pn 22002.
Note: Campbell Scientific recommends that only experienced assemblers or installers use the 22018 kit. Anyone using this kit to put the connector on a cable and enclosure should have good assembly skills and the ability to make adjustments as necessary. In addition, a user-supplied product is needed to help seal up the connection (such as epoxy or heat shrink material) so that the seal will endure for its intended lifetime in the environment.
The cable connection will not have the same result as if Campbell Scientific made the connection because we use a special molding machine to complete the connector/cabling process.
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%.
The following information is applicable to many of Campbell Scientific’s standard enclosures and prewired enclosures.
Note: The procedure below will not work for torn or damaged seals.
To make a field repair to a loose gasket on an enclosure, first acquire an adhesive, such as standard Gorilla Glue, that is rated for use with polyurethane foam. The adhesive should be compatible with, and recommended for, use with polyurethane foam. Follow these steps:
