NEMA Enclosure description

In an effort to prevent tampering, and protect access points a NEMA metal enclosure has been specifically designed to host the Aironet 1200 series Cisco Access points. 

The AP-1242 will be installed in a new wall mounted, lightweight metal enclosure. This enclosure will allow the access point to be installed using the factory provided mounting bracket.

The antenna will be mounted on the exterior of the enclosure, using a one inch circular opening on the enclosure.

The front panel utilizes a standard latch assembly used on earlier versions of the enclosure, and a gasket to provide a secure non-vibrating seal. Multiple knockouts for cabling are available at the top, bottom, and rear of the assembly. Ventilation openings are included as well.

The color of the enclosure will match that of the antenna for a more esthetically acceptable application.

The following are the external dimensions for the new enclosure:

• Width  10”
• Height  12”
• Depth  4.41”
