Paramount has two NEW posts in their TECHNICAL blog category. These informative articles focus on “Wet Location Definitions” and “NEMA – 4X Enclosures”.

This information is from the NEMA Standards Publication No. 250 “Enclosures for Electrical Equipment (1000 Volts Maximum)”


Type 4X Enclosures Description and Application

Type 4X enclosures are intended for indoor or outdoor use primarily to  provide a degree of protection against corrosion, windblown dust and rain, splashing water, hose-directed water, and damage from external ice formation. They are not intended to provide protection against conditions such as internal condensation or internal icing.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRY,
WET AND DAMP LOCATIONS


NEC Definitions:

From the National Electric Code

Dry Locations:
A location not normally subject to dampness or wetness. A location classified as dry may be temporarily subject to dampness or wetness, as in the case of a building under construction.

Damp Location:
Locations protected from weather and not subject to saturation with water or other liquids but subject to moderate degrees of moisture. Examples of such locations include partially protected locations under canopies, marquees, roofed open porches, and like locations, and interior locations subject to moderated degrees of moisture, such as some basements, some barns, and some cold storage buildings.

Wet Locations:
Installations underground or in concrete slabs or masonry in  direct contact with the earth; in locations subject to saturation with water or other liquids, such as vehicle washing areas; and in unprotected locations exposed to weather.

Application Photo Gallery


Presenting another addition to our “Application Photo Gallery” featuring Transit Lighting. We hope you are enjoying the series and learning more about the variety of successful applications Paramount has illuminated.

These photos are from Chesapeake Energy Corporation, Car Park One located in Oklahoma City, OK. The architectural firm for this project was Elliott + Associates Architects, and the consulting firm was Walker Consulting. This job was specified by Smith Lighting Sales.

Paramount’s C0 Series Craft Lites® with colored lamp sleeves to designate floor levels were utilized in this colorful parking structure. This creates a dramatic lighting effect, as well as making navigation easier throughout the facility. Users can “visually connect” to which level they parked on in the garage, and leave the facility with a positive, memorable experience.
