Construction and Features
This rugged enclosure features continuous seam welded 18 Gauge (1.2mm thick) steel construction. The enclosure door is fully gasketed making this enclosure suitable for use indoors or outdoors. The door features reinforced hinges and dual quarter-turn latches to secure the enclosure. Internal grounding studs are provided on both the door and enclosure.
Both the enclosure and door are finished in a rugged epoxy polyester textured light gray powder coat finish.
Bonus Aluminum Bottle Opener Key
This enclosure now includes our HN-0008 Aluminum Bottle Opener Key. A $9.99 value, this heavy duty aluminum door locking key easily attaches to most key chains. And it makes a great bottle opener too!
Removable Power and Fan Module
The NS242424VFA1R2C-R6U features a removable power and fan module that attaches to the bottom of the enclosure. Constructed of rugged aluminum, this can be easily removed for servicing and is fully gasketed to ensure a proper seal. This power module features a single pre-wired duplex 120VAC power outlet (2 outlets total) and a pre-wired 5 foot power cord, so no additional wiring is required.
For applications that require additional power outlets, the NS242424VFA1C-R6U features two pre-wired duplex power outlets (4 outlets total).
Dual Cooling Fans Ventilation
This enclosure features dual 3" vents and dual thermostat controlled cooling fans. The low noise, high airflow fans help maintain lower internal temperatures by allowing air to be either pushed or pulled through the enclosure. The fans turn on when the internal temperature reaches 100°F (38°C) and turns off when it drops to 79°F (26°C). Both fans are wired internally so they do not require the use of the AC outlets leaving them available for internal equipment use.
This enclosure is also available with a lower fan turn-on temperature of 85°F (30°C). See NS242424VFA1R2C-85-R6U.
Internal 6U 19" Equipment Rack
The NS242424VFA1R2C-R6U features a standard 19" 6U equipment rack. It is designed to accommodate a wide range of equipment such as network switches, rack mount audio/video equipment and most other rack mountable equipment. The rack frame mounts to a 18 Gauge (1.2mm thick) galvanized steel plate which can also be drilled and modified by the installer to unique site requirements.
Installation Note: This 6U rack has an adjustable depth from 9.5" (241.3mm) to 15.5" (393.7mm). Before ordering please check the dimensions of the equipment to be installed to ensure proper fit.
The enclosure features unique PG-16 cable glands with a closed inner seal. They are installed in the open ports to maintain the NEMA rating of the enclosure when not in use. When required for use, simply punch a hole through the inner membrane, run your cables and tighten for a water-tight seal.
Mounting holes are provided inside the enclosure for mounting to a wall or other structure. Two optional flange and pole mounting kits are available, painted steel (model NMKS-600-08) and stainless steel (model NMKX-600-08).
Optional Lockable Latches
For additional protection of internal equipment installed, two lockable latches are available. The HN-0005 is a keyed lock set which includes two keys. The HN-0006 allows the enclosure to be securely locked via use of a padlock (not included). Both the HN-0005 and HN-0006 are direct replacements for the standard quarter-turn latches that come pre-installed in the enclosures.
