NEMA enclosure indicators

NEMA enclosure indicators

NEMA enclosure indicators


Could anyone please advise if there are standard codes of practice regarding the spacing and position of indicator pilot lights on NEMA enclosures? Eg. minimum space between pilot lights etc.


RE: NEMA enclosure indicators

NEMA has nothing to do with the spacing of pilot lights. I would find a human factors standard and obey the rules contained therein. Since I'm not at work right now I can't provide you the name and number of such a standard. Try Googling it. I know there was once a mil standard for human factors but I think that it has since been replaced with a non-military standard.


RE: NEMA enclosure indicators

And it makes a difference if that NEMA enclosure is 20 ft up a pole vs head high on the side of a house.


RE: NEMA enclosure indicators


You should be able to suck this down straight off the internet. I have never looked up LED spacing, so you are on you own there.
