Transition Networks’ Outdoor Cabinet Assembly is a high impact resistant polycarbonate enclosure with a hinged cover that permits a 225° door swing and allows for easy door removal during installation or maintenance. The door is secured by two stainless steel latches that are bolted in place (providing more security than pop rivets or slide-on latches) and can be further secured with pad locks (not included). The 18” x 16” x 10” cabinet is deep enough to protect the bend radius of fiber cables connected to nearly any Transition Networks temperature hardened switch when mounted in the enclosure. A liquid tight vent plug is included to prevent condensation inside the enclosure.
Inside the cabinet, the OCA-P181610 includes two 15” DIN rails for easily mounting switches, media converters, power supplies and other communications equipment (sold separately). One entry port for routing power wires (a receptacle can be added by installer if desired) and 10 data cable entry ports with cord grips (each data cord grip accommodates two cables) are pre-installed in the cabinet. The enclosure also includes a ground terminal block with four push-in connections on each DIN rail to protect against lightning or other surges in power to the enclosure. Red and black feed-through terminal blocks are provided for terminating low voltage DC positive and negative wires within the enclosure. Blue and white feed-through terminal blocks are provided for AC mains line and neutral/line connections. End caps are also included for added safety. The enclosure includes mounting feet for mounting on a wall or side of building and optional brackets are available for mounting on 2-6″ diameter poles.
The enclosure includes a magnetic door contact switch which can be wired to digital input/outputs on Transition Networks switches or our optional Enclosure Door Contact Alarm to provide alerts when the enclosure door has been opened. The EDCA-DIO-01 mounts easily on the DIN rails or to the side of the cabinet with optional wall mount brackets. Optional fiber management trays (SESPM-4P-FMT) are available for managing fiber cable, if needed.
