Dirt, dust, water—all “adversaries” of electrical products due to the potential damage they can cause. To help protect products from these elements, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) have created classification systems designating different degrees of protection, depending on the application, for enclosures of electrical equipment.

When designing electrical products, one way to simplify the power entry element is by incorporating a module, which combines power entry functions into a single unit. Even though these functions are available as individual components, the benefits of a module include user safety, reduced individual component inventory, decreased assembly labor, and saved panel space.
