What does the term ``NEMA Type 3`` refer to?

In Non-Hazardous Locations, the specific enclosure Types refer to the environmental conditions they are designed to protect against. NEMA Type 3 enclosures are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against incidental contact with the enclosed equipment; to provide a degree of protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet, snow and windblown dust; and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure. For more detailed and complete information, NEMA Standards Publication 250-1997, ``Enclosures for Electrical Equipment (1000 Volts Maximum)`` should be consulted.
