    Hello all,
    I am looking for a PCB enclosure to mount to the backside of a solar panel. (Yes, I am building UL certified microinverter). I need IP66 or NEMA 4X enclosures.

    I went back to UL site to try and find their list of enclosures for this type of product.

    I need brackets or mounting lugs on the sides, not on the back like most of the boxes I have found. Screw lids, etc. They never have to be opened or serviced.

    I have been to too many sites to list here.

    I WANT TO BUY MADE IN USA! I am trying to source everything I can made in USA. I know I will never be able to label the inverters "Made in USA" as it has to be 70% american but I would like to keep the money here.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Examples of what I need: www.enphase.com, www.enecsys.com, www.westinghousesolar.com

    Have you contacted your local industrial electrical supply? Nema4x is not unusual, although a custom box will be special order.
