Whilst the SC/SCX motor unit is waterproof, the timer control unit should be mounted under cover or inside the hen house. If you want or need to locate it outside, then we are pleased to offer this enclosure. It is rated at Ingress Protection IP66, making it suitable for protection from rain.
£19.95 plus postage and packing. (P&P via Royal Mail: £4.10 UK, £10.45 EU, £13.15 Rest of World)
The enclosure measures 150mm x 150mm x 90mm deep. We supply with 4 mounting screws which are suitable to screw through special mounting recesses, (the screws then penetrate the rear of the unit). Alternatively the enclosure may be fixed in place using a suitable adhesive to avoid screw holes.
As supplied the unit has no holes drilled. We would recommend a single drill hole to accommodate the entry of the cable from the SC/SCX motor unit, and this should be on the underside (floor) of the enclosure (which will depend upon orientation of the hinge…..typically with the hinge at the top or side).
We supply with self adhesive pads (double sided) to mount the timer unit inside the box. (This again avoids further holes which have the potential to let in water).
