How did this get into the OpenEvse thread?

Good question! And did you mean Rinnai? I have one and love it too so I'm just wondering....GlennD wrote:How did this get into the OpenEvse thread?
I think you have to calculate the heat, it might require a big enclosure with venting or even air condition enclosure. Which rating standard are you using? NEMA rating or IP standard? I found this site might be valuable if you looking for NEMA electrical enclosures. They provide many types and design including addon features like hinges, couplings, wheels, air condition, and many more. My company did order from them recently and everything worked out fine. https://www.nemaco.com, to study for type and protection recommend study from https://www.nema.org/pages/default.aspx and https://www.nema.org/Products/Documents ... -types.pdf91040 wrote:Is a bigger enclosure enough or is venting required?
