UL 94 - Flame Rating - 5VA
PolyStar Enclosures provide the highest (most flame retardant) UL 94 rating available.
Outstanding Resistance to Environmental Exposure from -20 °F to +240 °F
PolyStar Enclosures are intended to be utilized for outdoor and indoor applications. The polycarbonate contained in the PolyStar Series, as well as the enclosure, have passed UL tests for suitability. The polycarbonate resin in the PolyStar Series received the best rating, an "F1" per UL 746C. This means that the resin has passed tests for UV exposure and water immersion. The PolyStar Series enclosures are rated 3R, 4, 4X, 12 per UL 50 and IP66 per IEC 60529. This means that the enclosure provides protection against ingress (of rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, and hose directed water), impact, and flame protection. The material rating and the product rating can assure the user that the PolyStar Series enclosures are suitable for outdoor use and exposure.
Low Temperature Performance
PolyStar Series enclosures are manufactured with polycarbonate designed to perform in cold weather applications. In general, the product performance will not be adversely affected until temperatures below -40 °F are realized. At temperatures below this level, stress, tension, and pressure could start to impact the enclosure's reliability. This includes the latching, opening and/or incidental impacts. In the absence of these potential threats, the enclosures should remain unaffected by the low temperatures, the company said.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
