Both models use a robust NEMA 4X enclosure that can handle dusty/dirty environments and high pressure washdown applications.

Dirty Duty drives are rated IP66 and can withstand up to 1,000 psi. Both drives are simple to program and easy to operate. A user-friendly keypad with up and down keys along with left and right arrows allow for effortless navigation and parameter changes. Multiple English-text status screen are easy to read on the full graphics backlit display. Optional external keypad may be remote mounted up to 200 feet from the drive.
