Plexo3 IP65 weatherproof cabinets for distribution up to 125 A

Legrand’s Plexo³ weatherproof cabinets – available in 11 sizes – have optimised dimensions from 2 to 4 x 18 modules, for distribution up to 125 A.

These durable enclosures, with a fully reversible door and cabinet, ensure optimised cable runs and efficient cable organisation in commercial and industrial installations, as well as in public and high-rise buildings.

Plexo³ modular cabinets, which are designed for quick and safe installation, have a removable faceplate for easy maintenance on individual rows. Other features for efficient installation include rails that can be individually removed and a removable chassis for wiring outside the cabinet. These units can be fitted with terminal blocks, which are easily repositioned at the top and bottom of the box.


Plexo3 IP64 weatherproof cabinets

These cabinets, with UV treatment, have an IP65 Index Protection rating for protection against dust and jets of water from all directions, ensuring suitability for installation in damp locations. Shock-resistant polystyrene is used in the manufacture of these units and an IK09 rating means enhanced protection against mechanical impact. A flush mounted lockable door handle ensures improved shock protection and a double closing point has been designed for a reliable seal. These self-extinguishing cabinets have resistance to incandescent wire 650˚.

The design of these UV resistant cabinets provides plenty of space behind the rails (a 2-position rail, with depth adjustment), a space of 150 mm between the rails and 38 mm space at the side allowing the cables to run easily.

Specially designed accessories, including those for joining a multi-function sleeve, enable these cabinets to be equipped with one or more flush-mounted Plexo³mechanisms. These include P17 industrial sockets and Osmoz industrial control and signalling units.

Accessories have been designed for effortless tool-free fitting and removal. Different sizes of direct piercing end caps and knockout cable entries can be mounted at the top and bottom of the cabinet. Cable glands are easily fitted according to exact requirements and hinges hold the cover for easy access to the cables.

The joining kit allows cables to be run horizontally or vertically between the multifunction sleeve and the cabinet or between two cabinets, with no compromise to the IP65 or IK09 protection ratings.

Plexo³ weatherproof cabinets are available from Legrand’s national distributor network, which also offers a technical advisory and back-up service.
