3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
ISO and lEc maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the followingaddresses:
.IEC Electropedia: available at http://www.electropedia.orgl

enclosure exposed to the outdoor environment,for stationary use at non-weatherprotectedlocations，for the protection of electrical and electronicequipment installed inside againstoutdoor environmental conditions
Note 1 to entry: An outdoorenclosure is applicable for wide field of equipment,(e.g. communication system,industrial or signal control，etc.)
Note 2 to entry. The typical installation locations of outdoor enclosures are shown in Figure 2
heat transfer rate
property with units of W/(m 2 K), a measure of the rate of heat transfer
Note 1 to entry: Detailed calculations for determination of the enclosure design dependent heat management 3.3
maximum mechanical load that an enclosure is able to sustain in static condition withoutmechanical failure, as the gross weight of enclosure including all deemed equipment, multiplied
by a safety factor 1,25
The dimensions of outdoor enclosures consist of coordination dimensions as given inIEC 61969-2. The coordination dimensions provide the range and systematic stipulation ofpossible enclosure internal and external dimensions.
5Environmental requirements,tests and safety aspects
5.1 Classification of environmental conditions
The classification of environmental conditions for outdoor enclosures is based on requirements
as defined in IEC 60721-3-2 and lEC 60721-3-4, and the tests are in accordance with therelevant parts of the lEC 60068 series.
The selection of relevant requirements, as indicated in Table 1 and Table 2, was made with thefocus on outdoor specific conditions and on structural design and safety aspects.
properties, including the heat transfer rate, are described in IEC 62194.
