        Do any one have used typhoon projector enclosure for Panasonic PT-DZ21K
        Posted by Jayesh, India               April 21 ,2015 @8:08am

        Hello Jayesh,
        Thank you for this - being a brand new product, Typhoon 8810 for the Panasonic 20K has been factory tested but has not shipped yet, though we have many successful installations with this projector in Cyclone 8100 enclosures, so we know it well. The first Typhoon installation has just been completed in a major theme park using the Christie Boxer 30K projector, so we are confident there winn be no issues. For India we would always recommend the thermal insulation option to moderate daytime temperatures inside the enclosure.

        We own multiple storm enclosures by Tempest but no replacement parts. Where or how can i find the part # and order this piece of glass. Thanks

        Hi David - this would be very unusual. Is this the Oasis installation where the enclosures are located in the water slide flumes? If so that could be the reason. In this extreme case you might be wise to schedule heater replacement say every 12 months.

        hi there with my 6555 units we have noticed that the heater is rusting after being replaced 7 months prior to that? can you give me some feedback on this if its normal or not?

        Thanks for the response, is there any firmware updates for these models? I have 6 of them on a site bought over two years ago.

        can you tell me what the IP rating is of the blizzard stretch part no 6555?

        Hi David,
        Please take a look at this paper, which explains the relationship between the IP system and the NEMA3R system to which Tempest outdoor enclosures are tested and approved.
        Thank you for your interest in our products - please let us know how we can further help you.

        Hello Laurent,

        Thank you for this. The enclosures are approved in the US for MEMA3R, which is an outdoor weatherproof standard for electrical enclosures. It is quite different from the IP system, and actually better suited to the needs of this kind of equipment. The closest rough equivalent on the IP scale is IP54, but that doesn't mean so much, since it is for weather that they have been tested and approved. There is a paper on our FAQ page that explains this more fully - please click on the first link in Hot Topics - IP and NEMA Weatherproof ratings explained.

        Thank you Tim-san!
        I've just sent you the details via email.
        Please confirm. Asako

        Hello Asako, thank you for this. Please email the Panasonic projector model number to and we'll get you a response right away. Please also tell us if this is for outdoor, indoor or noise-attenuation use.

        We're trying to determine which of your products would cover a Panasonic projector. The size is,
        W: 498mm D: 556 H: 200. The closest seems to be, Blizzard 6510 Baby Enclosure, but is this too close? Please advise what is most appropriate, and safe.
