KE-1 Metal Enclosure Installation Guide

KE-1 Metal Enclosure Installation Guide

1.0 Introduction

This installation guide is for the NXT/PXL KE-1 metal enclosure. It includes mounting dimensions and environmental ratings. It is intended to provide a secure enclosure for the PXL-500 controller, NXT and NXT-MSC 2 or 4-door controllers.


A lock on the enclosure cover ensures that only authorized hands have access to the controller (two keys are provided). Ten knockouts are spaced around the body of the enclosure providing maximum flexibility for cable routing to the controller. The enclosure is mounted to any solid surface using four screws.

3.0 Enclosure Mounting

The easiest method for marking the location of the mounting holes for drilling is to hold the enclosure against the mounting surface and then use a pencil to mark the mounting hole locations against the surface to which the enclosure is to be mounted.


If this is not practical, Figure 2 is a layout drawing of the mounting hole locations.

Note: Figure 2 is not an actual size drawing and cannot be used as a drilling template.

Figure 4: Mounting the controller into the enclosure


Once the enclosure is mounted and cabling is routed to the enclosure, the controller is mounted into the enclosure (see Figure 4). There are four standoffs in the back of the enclosure to which the controller is mounted. Use the four screws provided with the controller to mount the controller in the KE-1 Enclosure. Simply align the controller over the four standoffs and insert the screws.


Note: Do not over-tighten the mounting screws as this can damage the controller.
