Hi all,

Have a job where we have had to installl some surge protectors in a panel. We need to have a window over the front of them so the indicators can be seen from the outside of the panel. I have seen on panels built by other manufacturers a 100mm square sized acrylic 'window ' which was in a black plastic bezel in the panel. I am struggling to find a supplier of these. I can find the Fibox ones, but they open and if opend would expose the user to live parts .

Anyone got a link to a supplier that would be willing to sell me 4 ???

Thanks


Nick

Not quite what i am looking for Alan, as its inside an existing panel !!!

Have tried looking on RS , but the ones i can find seem to come up as hinged versions.

Any links appreciated

Assuming that the addition of the inspection window won't affect the fault withstand capability of the the enclosure, there are a number of options you could go for.

If you can cut a neat hole in the panel, you could just bolt an oversized clear perpex window over it, either from the inside or the outside. RS sell plenty of rubber sealing strips of different varieties that you could use to cover the edge and hide the screws.

You can obtain from RS, and probably other places, a window seal rubber and insert and can set the window into the enclosure door. But probably not economic if you only have a four to do.

I guess there is also nothing stopping you from obtaining a hinged window and sealing it up so that it cannot be opened.

Kind regards
