Ask a Question

If you change the enclosure material from a mild steel to stainless steel on a Transformer enclosure, does that alter the UL listing or the NEMA rating of the enclosure?

Stainless Steel Transformer enclosures

LV Transformers

Applies to Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Stainless Steel Transformer enclosure NEMA ratings

No, neither the UL listing, nor the NEMA rating of the enclosure changes.  If it is a NEMA 2 enclosure with mild steel, then it will be a NEMA 2 enclosure manufactured out of stainless steel.  The same holds true for NEMA 3R enclosures.  SquareD/Schneider Electric does offer NEMA 4X rated Transformers 25 KVA single phase, 30 KVA three phase.
