Model IPC Splashproof Cover is a rugged, impact resistant, clear lens that fits over a 1/8 DIN instrument to make it dust and water proof from the front of the panel. Sealing meets NEMA 12 (IP52) standards for water splash and dust protection when the hinged door is simply snapped in place. Sealing meets NEMA 4 (IP67) standards for hose-directed water when the hinged door is further clamped down with a provided M3 x 10 mm screw.
Model IPC fits all Laurel 1/8 DIN instruments as well as 1/8 DIN instruments by other manufacturers, provided that instrument dimensions in front of the panel do not exceed 48 x 97 x 28 mm (1.89" x 3.82" x 1.10"). Model IPC can be purchased as an add-on option for new instruments, or be fitted to existing installations.
The IPC assembly comes with a black base (or mounting frame) and a clear door with a cam hinge. The hinge is captive when the base and meter are installed, and allows the door to be opened for easy access to the meter for programming or setpoint adjustment. The base and clear door each come with an integral gasket for a watertight and dust-tight fit. No loose gaskets need to be installed.
The clear door is latched to the base by a locking tab when the door is snapped shut. A more secure lock which withstands hose directed water is achieved by locking down the tab with an included M3 hex screw and nut. The nut is held on all sides in a hexagonal cavity in the backside of the black base.
Model IPC is easy to install. It utilizes the existing 1/8 DIN panel cutout (45 x 92 mm). No new panel holes are required. The black base can be oriented so that the clear door opens to the right or left.
