Water and dust protection, but what about the cold?
L-com supplies many different kinds of weatherproof enclosures for outdoor installations. Standard weatherproof enclosures include
- a fully gasketed lid to prevent moisture entrance
- downward-facing cable conduit connectors and D-holes for cable access away from falling water
- and stainless steel clamping latches to hold the lid closed no matter what
All of this ensures that the contents of the enclosure will be safe from rain and dust. However, what do you do when you need to install something in a cold environment, even sub-zero temperatures? L-com has the answer!

Sub-Zero temperature protection
L-com’s sub-zero 48 VDC PoE-powered weatherproof enclosure is perfect for the rigors of sub-zero temperatures. Like the regular heated enclosures, the sub-zero model has a thermostat-controlled heating system. It is powered by a single Cat5 cable plugged into the included remote-mounted power supply. However, this thermostat is designed for use in sub-zero environments up to -30°F (-34°C), maintaining a nominal internal ambient temperature of +40°F (4°C). In addition to the insulation properties of fiberglass, this enclosure features foam insulation to aid in heat retention. L-com even carries a rack-mount DC injector that can supply power for up to 12 sub-zero enclosures, perfect for multiple installations.
