Default Gem's of the PLC, VFD, and Motors world

We have probably 4 locations like this. Large, baseball size, hail, tornadoes and severe thunderstorms are common in the area. The HIM's are also subject to frequent high, gritty wind.

The other 3 HIM's don't work at all. PF 525's

This is the kind of stuff the New Construction team hands over to us Maintenance guys.

Anyone know if there's a WP/hail proof version of HIM for the 525's? If not I think we can install some hinged/magnetic covers to minimize exposure

I'm glad that last picture clearly shows that the cardboard box is approved to be used in Canada.

Can you get a cheap receptacle cover with a snap in back to fit over the display?

Make some sheet metal hoods for them. Better yet, fashion some type of sheet metal storm door.

I thought the "C UL US" meant either country?

I'd be more concerned with the "Indoor use only"

They make them, but the ones that are small enough for each individual HIM module (Vynier) are grossly over priced (as in $250) and the ones that are affordable ($65+-) are too big. But if you can squeeze the 4 HIMs together more, you can get one of those larger ones cheap.

Might get away with putting a window kit on the front. Doesn't necessarily have to be for that specific enclosure, you just need to cover the HIMs. 4 small or 1 large might work.
