Overview

The ENC14/16 is a weather-resistant enclosure that is 14 in. wide and 16 in. tall. This medium-large enclosure can house a datalogger, a power supply, and one or more peripheral—depending on the size of the peripherals. A common use for the ENC14/16 is to mount a larger enclosure to the leg base of a CM110, CM115, or CM120 tripod, because the larger ENC16/18 cannot be mounted to the leg base of these tripods.

  1. The ENC14/16 weighs 13 lb. Its internal dimensions are 14 x 16 x 5.5 in.
  2. Our fiberglass enclosures can withstand very cold locations, and their fiberglass/plastic construction is very resistant to corrosion.
  3. The terminals do not need to be replaced. Just sand or file the corrosion away, exposing clean copper, and the fittings will continue to be functional.
  4. It depends on the device. Most devices have built-in mounting flanges, but some items require a separate mounting bracket.
  5. Yes. The CD100 mounts in an enclosure door and supports all of the CR1000KD capabilities. With the CD100, historic and real-time data can be read, and instructions can be entered without opening the enclosure door.

    Other available options that display real-time data only are the CD295 and CD294.

  6. Yes. Each enclosure Campbell Scientific sells has a powder-coated backplate with holes on 1 in. centers that match the mounting flanges on our equipment for easy mounting.
  7. Backplates are available in sizes designed to fit in Campbell Scientific enclosures: 10 x 12 in., 12 x 14 in., 14 x 16 in., and 16 x 18 in.

  8. There is not an easy way to calculate how much desiccant is needed in an enclosure or how quickly the desiccant will need to be replaced. The following conditions affect the replacement interval:

    • How much humidity the enclosure is exposed to
    • The size of the enclosure
    • How often the enclosure door is opened and how long the door remains open
    • How airtight the enclosure is

    It may be advantageous to use more than one desiccant packet at a time inside an enclosure. Campbell Scientific recommends keeping an extra supply of desiccant on hand for as-needed replacement in the enclosure.
