Glen Burnie, MARYLAND, JANUARY 6, 2009. The ARCA® JIC enclosure family, from Fibox, has been tested and certified by SGS FIMKO to comply with the European Community's Low Voltage Directive and permits use of the CE Mark. The CE Mark is recognized worldwide and CE Conformity is required for importation of electrical equipment into the European Community. ARCA enclosures were evaluated against EN 60529 and EN 62262, achieving ingress ratings of IP66 / IP67 and an impact rating of IK09. ARCA enclosures were also evaluated for mechanical strength (EN 60439-4) and conformity to Low Voltage Switchgear requirements (EN 62208). In addition, ARCA enclosures are UL Listed and NEMA rated Type 4, 4X, 12, and 13.


The ARCA enclosure line consists of 10 standard JIC enclosure sizes ranging from 6 x 6 x 4" D to 18 x 16 x 10" D and is available in over 100 configurations of opaque or transparent screw cover or hinged latched cover versions. This size range targets OEM instrumentation, controls, and automation applications, and accommodates larger components and high power applications.

Stylized ARCA enclosures, manufactured using injection-molded polycarbonate, a high performance plastic, provide ease of customization, robustness, superior chemical resistance, and wide temperature range. ARCA enclosures protect electrical and electronic equipment in industrial applications including chemical manufacturing, pulp and paper manufacturing, wastewater treatment systems, clean energy including wind and solar, and hostile indoor and outdoor environments.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
