    Default motor controller enclosure, flush into cabinet, name

    I am trying to find a type of dust proof motor controller cabinet,box, or enclosure that sits flush into a hole cut into a metal cabinet. Something like a NEMA 2 size. This will be adapted to a tablesaw so all the wiring is hidden but I can take the cover off and do the wiring from the outside. Similar to how a home light switch is installed.
    I do not know what to call such a box or enclosure so I can search for it. Flush mount seems to just be breaker boxes.

    I believe the NEMA numbers indicate the environment rating of the enclosure, nothing to do with the physical size.

    I would call them 'flush mount electrical enclosures'..but those items are usually large and even used, they aren't cheap. You can easily weld flanges on a small enclosure of your choice and make your own flush mount box..right!

    Most manufacturers of motor starters sell the cans separately for their products. Not every motor starter gets mounted in a separate stand alone enclosure, so . . . . Good luck.
