The overall size of the DCS800-EP is slightly larger than the FlexPak 3000 in some cases. However, the FlexPak3000 required more clearance in width and height, so differences in those dimensions are unlikely to be a problem. Depth, however, could sometimes be an issue, especially with the optional Bframe reactor.
- Width: four inches of side clearance was required for the FlexPak 3000 to allow room for the control rack to swing open. DCS800 does not have a swing-out control rack so very little side clearance is required.
- Height: The FlexPak required more top and bottom clearance for airflow than does the DCS800.
- Depth: The depth of the DCS800 is greater in some cases.
This may cause an issue if there is very little depth clearance in the existing enclosure.
