Harsh Environment

Dust, Dirt, Splashed Water, Oil Mist

The 42D enclosure is a lower cost stainless steel and aluminum housing for your Cognex DataMan 500 or Cognex DataMan 300 camera. It is designed to protect your camera from impacts, dust, dirt, splashed water and idle hands.

The enclosure is highly configurable, with air cooling and air curtain faceplate options.

The standard cable gland at the bottom of the enclosure uses a split insert to provide a watertight seal around one or more cables. The gland allows passage of one or more premade cables without removal of the connectors from the cables.

The enclosure is designed so that once the enclosure cover is removed, the user has full access to the camera and lens, taking the guesswork out of changing focus and f-stop settings.

The standard 42D enclosure allows the lens to be adjusted close to the viewport to reduce reflections.

  • Enclosure cover is constructed of 16 gauge 304 stainless steel, enclosure base is constructed of 1/4″ 6061 aluminum.
  • All external fasteners are 18-8 stainless steel.
  • Fasteners to mount both the Cognex DataMan 500 and Cognex DataMan 300 cameras are included.
  • Enclosure meets NEMA 12 standards when equipped with sealed viewport.
  • Cord grip options include: Drillable PG36 37mm cord grip, 1/4″ NPT connectors for air cooling and pressure regulation.

Enclosure also is available with an air curtain faceplate. Call APG for options.
