Unlike window air conditioners that plug into electrical receptacles, most mini split air conditioners are hard wired to the electrical fuse box. Generally, mini split outdoor condensers receive power from the electrical fuse box through an outdoor disconnect box. Electrical Whip is used from the disconnect box to the equipment. Always use a disconnect box when wiring mini split air conditioners - it's an important safety measure, and required by local code in many areas. In most cases the disconnect box should be located close enough to pull the power while standing at the outdoor condenser.
Type 3R Enclosure
The disconnect enclosure is rainproof, and designed for outdoor installation.
Important for Safety
Having a disconnect box within reach of the electrical equipment allows for fast power shut-off when necessary.
Color Coded Wiring
Whip wire is provided in 3 distinct colors for ease of hook-up.
