Extra-Duty Weather Resistant UL Type 3R In-Use Housing
Designed for wet or damp locations, Extra-Duty M8 Thru-View housing allows customers to plug items into their customized GracePort and close the cover to provide in-use protection against rain and moisture.
Recent changes in the 2011 National Electrical Code (NEC) better clarifies how to protect outlets when installed on the outside of enclosures located in these environments. The NEC 2011 also recognized that most residental in-use receptacle covers are not suiable for commercial and industrial usage. In these applications they describe an industrial in-use cover as extra-duty. Built for long life, the industrial M8 extra-duty housing fits this need.
The extra-duty, in-use cover requirement applies to devices plugged into 15-20 amp/125-250 volt receptacles in wet or damp locations that are unattended by the worker.
