JPC Design concept of the Y0 types enclosures

1. Design concept of the Y0 types

The design of the Y0 enclosures was made to provide a starting range with a particular selection of low cost solutions. The plastic used is PC-ABC compound, with or without fiberglass reinforcement. This material combines good mechanical strength, good resistance to deformation under load according to ASTM D648 (98 °C for the version without fiberglass and 125 ° C for the 20% fiberglass version), fire resistance UL94-V0 and a glow wire test 650 ° C to meet the major specifications of EN60335 relating to domestic heating units.
The covers are snapped or use self-tapping screws. Cable glands, when present, are made of polyamide.
Shafts and buttons wall crossings comply IPX0, IPX1 or IPX2, IPX3, IPX4 class, depending on the model.
The housings for oil filled radiators or convectors are supplied without control and are designed to receive standard electronic controls of French suppliers (Cotherm, Watts, Delta Dore etc …)
Caution: Protection class IP is given for a specified enclosure position. Installation and assembly of electronic cards by customer can modify this class of protection
For industrial applications: products should be defined according to the specific application and its specific environmental constraints.

1.1 Y0 enclosures with external shaft or button: Water ingress protection ratings

 

IPX1 IPX2 IPX3 IPX4
Protection against dripping water
(condensation), the enclosure
being in its normal position.
Examples of construction:
– Openings in the housing at the
bottom or louvres on side are
possible.
– The adjustment shaft is covered
by a handle or protected by a rib
on the housing
Protection against falling of drops
of water, whereby the enclosure
can be inclined by 15 ° relative to
its normal position.
Examples of construction:
– Openings in the housing at the
bottom or louvres on side having
at least an angle of 30° are
possible.
– The adjustment shaft is protected
by a cap or knob with a flanged bezel with cover or a rib on the housing
Protection against rainwater,
as long as it has not at an angle
greater than 60 ° to the vertical
Examples of construction:
– Openings in the housing at the
bottom or louvres on side having
at least an angle of 60 ° are
possible.
– The adjustment shaft is protected
by a screw cap or a knob with labyrinth
Protection against splashing
water splashes in all directions.
Examples of construction:
– Openings in the housing are not
possible, even at the bottom if
they are not protected by a seal
or appropriate labyrinth.
– The adjustment shaft is
protected by a screw cap or a knob with triple labyrinth.
Louvres are possible but difficult

 

1.2 Y0 enclosures with outside adjustment or button: Protection of persons against access to hazardous parts and protection of equipment against ingress of solid objects

IPX1  IPX2 IPX3 IPX4
Protected against solid objects
bigger than 50 mm (eg accidental
contact of the hand)
Examples of construction:
Enclosures or covers whose
output does not have cable
gland, if its bore has a diameter
≥ ISO M12 or> PG7
Protected against solid objects
bigger than 12 mm (eg finger)
Examples of construction:
Enclosures or covers whose
output does not have cable gland,
if its bore has a diameter less than
or equal to 12mm (<or ISO M12
<PG7)
Protected against solidobjets
bigger
than 2.5 mm (eg tools, wires)
Examples of construction:
Enclosures with air circulation
holes smaller than 2.5mm ( Room
thermostats, room humidistats,
temperature sensors and
humidity sensors)
Protected against solid objects
bigger than 1 mm (eg small tools,
small wires)
Examples of construction:
Closed enclosures, without gasket
between cover and base, and
seamless adjustment shaft, or
without protection cap on
external buttons .

 

Examples of standards which we recommend you refer to define technical needs for domestic appliances: Room heaters (IEC60335-2-30),
Heaters that are built into air conditioners (IEC 60335-2-40); Clothes dryers and towel rails (IEC 60335-2-43); Heaters for saunas (IEC 60335-2-53); Thermal-storage room heaters (IEC 60335-2-61); Heating appliances for breeding and rearing animals (IEC 60335-2-71); Foot warmers and heating mats (IEC 60335-2-81); Flexible sheet heating elements for room heating (IEC 60335-2-96); Heating cables (IEC 60800).

2. Empty enclosure for oil filled electric radiators, with single tube heating element and electronic temperature control, Type Y01

These boxes are mounted on the outer threaded ½ “ single tube heating elements in oil filled radiators. They are designed to accommodate existing electronic cards from manufacturers such as Cotherm, Delta Dore etc …
Their IP protection class allows them to be mounted in most domestic applications.
They are designed to respond to a class II insulation: creepage distances and clearances between the metal parts or live parts are greater than or equal to 8mm (Indicative values, which may vary according to internal electronic circuits)
The minimum plastic wall thickness is 1.6 mm.
They can be supplied with mains cable with pull out force greater than 10 daN.
The development of these boxes is on customer specifications.
