From Sunshine to Snowstorms, Viking’s EWP Protects Your Electronics!

HUDSON, WI – June 19, 2019 – For applications requiring an extra layer of protection against moisture, vehicle exhaust, pool chemicals or extreme temperatures, Enhanced Weather Protection gives you the durability you need for years of service.

“A customer down in his Florida beach home just took out one of our analog EWP entry phones because he is changing to a VoIP service provider. The Viking unit was still fully functional even after 10+ years of service in that salty air.” – Greg Yocom, Senior Engineer at Viking Electronics

Viking products with Enhanced Weather Protection 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.

Customers trust Viking’s EWP products for tough applications like ocean beach properties, swimming pools areas or in parking garages. Door and gate entry phones that are exposed to the harsh elements can also be protected with Enhanced Weather Protection.

We’ve put EWP to the test with the outdoor phones used at our manufacturing facility in Hudson, Wisconsin. If you’d like to see the video, search for “Viking EWP” on YouTube.
