Preparing the mounting cutout
Stability of the mounting cutout
The material in the area of the mounting cutout must provide sufficient strength to guarantee
the enduring and safe mounting of the HMI device.
The force of the clamps or operation of the device may not lead to deformation of the
material in order to achieve the degrees of protection described below.
Degrees of protection
The degrees of protection of the HMI device can only be guaranteed if the following
requirements are met:
● Material thickness at the mounting cutout for IP65 degree of protection, or for
enclosure type 4X/type 12 (indoor use only): 2 mm to 6 mm
● Permitted deviation from plane at the mounting cutout: ≤ 0.5 mm
This condition must be fulfilled for the mounted HMI device.
● Permissible surface roughness in the area of the mounting seal: ≤ 120 µm (R
