PolyStar™ Enclosures are intended to be utilized for outdoor and indoor applications. The polycarbonate resin in the PolyStar™ Series received the best rating, an “F1” per UL 746C. This means that the resin has passed tests for UV exposure and water immersion. The PolyStar™ Series enclosures are rated 3R, 4, 4X, 12 per UL 50 and IP66 per IEC 60529. The material rating and the product rating can assure the user that the PolyStar™ Series enclosures are suitable for outdoor use and exposure.
PolyStar™ enclosures are manufactured with polycarbonate designed to perform in cold weather applications. In general, the product performance will not be adversely affected until temperatures below -40°F are realized. In our literature, we document a normal operating temperature of -20°F to +240°F (-20°C to +115°C). We do this to provide a safe operating range, as product application and enclosure placement are not always exactly known.
