Bud Introduces PTQ plastic NEMA 4 enclosure

July 30, 2015—Bud Industries introduced PTQ Series enclosure, an IP67 and UL NEMA 4 and NEMA 6 rated box with a latching lid. PTQ Series is made of polycarbonate plastic infused with 10 percent fiberglass to give it exceptional strength, impact resistance and tight tolerances

This NEMA rated enclosure protects electrical and electronic designs in many applications including on the factory floor where equipment washdowns are common, outdoors in dusty and corrosive environments, and even where there is a risk of temporary submersion. The enclosure is well suited for housing machine controls, WIFI and radio equipment, lighting, and access controls.

The enclosure is available in 10 sizes ranging from 5.91 inches. x 5.91 inches. x 3.34 inches. to 24.8 inches. x 20.87 inches. x 10.04 inches and features a hinged latching lid or a clear polycarbonate lid. The optional clear lid allows inspection without opening the box and indication without adding cutouts. Included stainless steel latches and continuous gasket ensure reliable performance.

The PTQ Series enclosure is available from stock at prices starting around $15.50 with discounts for quantity orders. Options include a steel or plastic internal panel and external mounting brackets. The enclosure ships fully assembled. Enclosure modifications are readily available from the factory. Only Bud offers 5-day turnaround on simple modifications such as holes and cutouts.
