Mechanical structures for electronic equipment - Outdoor enclosures - Part 1: Design guidelines
- Addition of design guidance for thermal management and noise suppression as thermal/noise management is often considered a basic requirement of an empty outdoor enclosure. If thermal management components are included in the product, the environmental impact may become the responsibility of the empty outdoor enclosure manufacturer. Therefore the acoustic limitations shall be observed. Typically, the user of the empty outdoor enclosure follows the local regulatory acoustic requirements (sound power and/or sound pressure). Acoustic measurements may be performed on the empty outdoor enclosure fitted with thermal management components only or, if agreed between manufacturer and user at the final stage of the application specific installation.
- Historically, Ed 1 intended to create a market for standardized empty outdoor enclosures offered by multiple vendors. Detail standards such as IEC 61969-2-1 Ed 1 and IEC 61969-2-2 Ed 1 were issued to guide users to preferred and available solutions. However, development showed that this intend (created with user's participation) was not satisfying the user's expectations. Consequently, the detail standards IEC 61969-2-1 Ed 1 and IEC 61969-2-2 Ed 1 will be withdrawn when IEC 61969-2 Ed 2 is issued. The IEC 61969-2 Ed 2 co-ordination dimensions are based on IEC 60917-1. The definition outdoor cases and outdoor cabinets are merged into the definition outdoor enclosures.
