For applications requiring an extra layer of protection against moisture, vehicle exhaust, pool chemicals or extreme temperatures, Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP) gives users the durability they need for years of service. Viking products with EWP have a circuit board that is potted in urethane or thermoplastic. The potting material won’t crack in cold weather, it provides protection against moisture and condensation and it’s an excellent electrical insulator. In conjunction with the potting material, EWP products feature internally sealed push-to-call buttons, dip-switches and volume control pots. Additional gaskets for the speaker, mic and faceplate make EWP compliant to an IP66 rating. Viking’s EWP products are designed for applications such as ocean beach properties, swimming pool areas or parking garages. Door and gate entry phones that are exposed to the harsh elements can also be protected with Enhanced Weather Protection.
