        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.

        hi, i am looking for a projector enclosure for Barco Series 2 projectors, mainly DP2K-12C but am unsure which enclosure should be used.

        Hi Mohammed,
        You will need a Cyclone 8210 HUSH enclosure for this projector - assuming you will be using it indoors for boothless cinema. If outdoors then it's the 8210.
        Please email with your full contact details and we'll be happy to get you pricing.

        Hi, I am looking to buy a projector enclosure that will be outdoors year round in Alberta, Canada. Temperatures reaching a low of 40 degrees (c) and about 6 months of snowfall. Will the Blizzard enclosures suffice? Or will I need a Tempest or Cyclone enclosure?
        Posted by H, Canada               November 05 ,2013 @11:11am

        Hello H!
        Either will be fine, especially with the recommended thermal insulation kit. Please email with your projector make and model and we will put a distributor in touch with you for the appropriate enclosure.

        I am planning to buy a Tornado 2100 to protect a Lighting Effect Projector. We want to install the whole system outside in a ski resort.
        I would like to know what is the lowest design temperature of your equipment. I would also be interested to have a list of references for similar equipment in the same kind of environment.
        Kind regards

        Hi. I am currently using a Cyclone 8200 Series Projector Enclosures for a laser projector. I would like to tilt the projector inside the case for 19 degrees upward. Would it be possible to do this and do I need to concern about the refractive index of the front glass?
        Posted by Heily Lai, Hong Kong               August 15 ,2013 @6:06am

        Hello Heili,
        This may well work since the glass we use for the projector window is very high quality.
        I suggest you try it and if it does NOT work then contact us and we can make a 19 degree window to fit your Cyclone using A/R glass.
        Please let us know how you get on!
