The La Marche Battery/Charger console enclosures are now back by popular demand. Our new enclosures, called the LBCE, are available in either NEMA 1, 3R, 4 or 12 ratings and feature separate baffled compartments for the batteries and the charger. The battery compartment features either trays or stepped shelf mounting. Options include cooling fans with filters, air conditioner, window kits and heaters. All enclosures can be custom engineered to meet your specifications.
La Marche can also supply custom NEMA 3R, 4 and 12 enclosures for use with most any of our battery chargers in those applications where only a battery charger is needed. In these situations we will offer a suitably rated enclosure in which a completely assembled La Marche charger will be mounted inside. Other La Marche equipment such as Battery Informers, distribution panels and inverters can be mounted inside along with the battery chargers.
If you may not be familiar with the NEMA enclosure definitions, below you will find a brief description of the types we are offering. For a more detailed description please see NEMA Standards Publication 250-2003, "Enclosures for Electrical Equipment (1000 Volts Maximum)".
NEMA 1 is your basic general purpose indoor enclosure designed to protect people from incidental contact with the components inside as well as a degree of protection against solid objects.
NEMA 3R* is your basic outdoor enclosure designed to protect the enclosed equipment against rain. It provides protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet and snow.
NEMA 4* enclosures are watertight and dust tight. It provides protection against falling dirt, windblown dust, rain, sleet, snow, splashing water and hose directed water.
NEMA 12* enclosures are dust tight and drip tight intended for indoor use. They provide protection against falling dirt, circulating dust, lint, fibers, and dripping water.
*NEMA 3R, 4 and 12 also provide protection for people against incidental contact with internal components.
The new enclosures will nicely compliment our existing product offerings and we welcome the opportunity to work with you on any NEMA enclosure requirements you may have. We will be expanding the line based on your requirements. Refer to the LBCE Data Sheet for more battery console enclosure details.
