STI Introduces New Heated Enclosure

November 7, 2006 – STI announces the upcoming addition of clear Heated Polycarbonate Enclosures, which will protect keypads, annunciators and other electronic products, to their Stopper Line of protective covers. The covers will be ideal for protecting a wide range of devices, components and sensitive units from vandalism and accidental damage as well as weather, dirt, dust and grime.

These new STI Heated Polycarbonate Enclosures will be designed to maintain a temperature above freezing which allows the protected unit to be installed outdoors, in freezers, unheated warehouses or storage units. The radiant heat plate will prevent LCD displays from becoming sluggish or freezing. They will offer a choice of 12, 16 or 24 volts and have three thermostats; a control thermostat, over temperature safety thermostat and a low temperature warning that can connect to a supervisory panel.

The enclosures will come with a thumb lock (key lock available upon request) and have a choice of two enclosed backboxes. Backbox "A" provides 4.59 inches of depth and backbox "F" provides 2.79 inches of depth. The internal clearance for the keypad or other electronic device is 5.5" height by 7.5" width. The covers are backed by a lifetime guarantee against breakage in normal use (one year on electronics). Mounting hardware and gaskets are included.

The Heated Polycarbonate Enclosures' scheduled release date is December of 2006.
