Six sizes of CEA aluminium enclosures are supplied with protection to IP68 as an option (see table above). These Si 12 alloy die cast aluminium boxes whilst light weight, offer high impact and corrosion resistance. Finish options include: unpainted, painted, a hard anodised sea water resistant coating and RFI shielding for EMC compliance (2004/108/EC).

CEA s standard working temperature range of -40º C to +90º C can be increased to    -60º C to+130º C by means of an optional silicone gasket.
