CAEN Automation Enclosures and Accessories
The CAEN Series automation enclosures are designed to house the Crestron CLXI-Series
lighting control modules and
control systems. CAEN enclosures are available
in an assortment of sizes, suitable for surface or flush wall mount installation. Each model has
been engineered to provide a clean and manageable installation with abundant provisions for
wire termination and electrical knockouts.
CAEN automation enclosures are designed to use space efficiently supporting over a hundred
possible circuits in the largest model. Both centralized and distributed configurations are
possible. A single PAC2 control system installed in a central enclosure can support numerous
satellite extension enclosures distributed throughout a residence or commercial facility.
Interconnection of the complete network of enclosures requires just one circulating Cresnet
cable. Dozens of keypads, touchpanels, wall box dimmers, shade controllers, and other
peripherals can also be terminated within an enclosure, with separate compartments provided for
high and low voltage wiring.
Crestron lighting and automation systems are completely convection cooled for silent and
reliable operation. A vented front cover is included with every enclosure.
All models are constructed of 16-gauge galvanized steel and are pre-drilled for mounting of the
PAC2, PAC2M, CLXI modules, CLTI (BN) terminal blocks, power supplies, and CAEN-
BLOCK terminal block.
Additional non-CLX lighting modules and third-party contactors may be installed using CAEN-
UMP Crestron universal mounting plates. Grounding blocks and low-voltage partitions are
CAEN enclosures are also well suited for all types of Class 2 and Class 3 applications including
voice and data structured wiring, security, and RF signal distribution (as permitted by applicable
CAEN enclosures are UL and C-UL listed. If you require a complete UL Listed panel, Crestron
offers this service through its UL Listed panel shop, providing complete in-factory system
configuration and assembly.
The PAC2 occupies two module spaces in a double-wide enclosure and one module
space in a single-wide enclosure.
Four keyholes are located within the enclosure and should be used if surface mounting.
