Design and Construction

The equipment enclosure is manufactured from corrosion-resistant, hot-dip zinc galvanized sheet metal. The doors are coated with UV-resistant grey powder paint; optional locking mechanisms are also available. The electrical components can be put on rails or mounting plates. The equipment interior has coverings that guarantee IP2X protection, i.e., prevent the accidental touching of current carrying components during servicing. In addition, separating interior walls prevent tools or hardware from falling into other compartments and causing a short circuit.

Transport and Installation

The equipment is assembled on palettes that are equipped with lifting hooks. Onsite installation against a wall is done with the use of mounting hardware; affi xing to a fl oor is possible through bolts.

Tests and Standards

Harju Elekter low voltage equipment complies with the following directives: low voltage LVD 2006/95/EC, electromagnetic compatibility EMCD 2004/108/EC and mechanical design MD 2006/42/EC. The products are developed to adhere to the standards IEC 60439-1, IEC 61439-2 and IEC 60439-3. The equipment also displays the CE mark.
