The robust ECS electronics housings are ideally suited for wall and mast mounting. They allow the easy integration of printed circuit boards with thicknesses of 1.59 mm and 2.38 mm. In addition, the housing is also available in a ventilated version. The integrated tamper protection prevents unauthorized access.
ECS outdoor housings for harsh conditions
Robust outdoor housings of the ECS series are the ideal solution for protecting sensitive electronics used in indoor and outdoor applications from dust, dirt, and water. Thanks to the IP6X to IP69K degrees of protection and a wide temperature range from -40°C to +100°C, the housings are ideal for harsh ambient conditions and other challenging environments. This is confirmed by DNV approvals.More information

ECS series outdoor housings at a glance The outdoor housings with IP67 and IP69 degrees of protection are the ideal solution for sensitive electronics in demanding outdoor environments.
Secure protection for sensitive electronics in your application
Gain an overview of how versatile the robust ECS series outdoor housing is. Heat, cold, rain – your electronics stay well protected even under extreme conditions.
Ideally equipped for harsh field applications
The outdoor housings have UL certification and reliably protect your electronics against dust, dirt, and water up to the IP67/IP69 degrees of protection. They are designed for the temperature range from -40°C to +100°C. The plastic polycarbonate PC has the UL 94-V0 protection class.
The ECS-EX series version provides a safe protective shell for your electronics even in potentially explosive environments. Thanks to ATEX/IEC EX certification for the housings, your device approval is made easier.
Thanks to proven device connection technology with reliable sealing, you can easily implement tailored interfaces for signals, data, and power. This turns a robust housing into a versatile electronics solution. Choose from device connectors in the sizes M5, M8, and M12. For high contact densities with up to 17 positions, data rates of up to 10 Gbps, and currents of up to 16 A.
An optional pressure equalization membrane ensures a sufficient level of air exchange, thus increasing the service life of the housing-internal electronics.
The housing parts can be sealed quickly and securely, therefore providing protection against unauthorized access.
The integrated interlock for the PCB protects it from unintentional detachment – ideal for use in demanding environments.

Technical principles of electronics housings Solutions for DIN rail applications
Electronics housings are an elementary part of a device. They determine its appearance and protect the electronics from external influences. In addition, they enable assembly in superordinate units. Device manufacturers must therefore pay attention to many details, and not only in the design, but also in the choice of housing when it comes to materials and quality testing. This brochure provides you with all the details.
