Construction  The transmitter shall be constructed on racks and panels or in totally enclosed frames protected The transmitter shall be enclosed in a metal frame or grille separated from the operating space by a barrier or other equivalent means 2.FM Transmitter Considerations 1. Enclosure  .

Interlocks  All access doors shall be provided with interlocks which will disconnect all voltages in excess of 350V when any access door is opened . Grounding of Controls All external metallic handles and controls shall be effectively grounded  No circuit in excess of 150V shall have any part exposed to direct contact  4.FM Transmitter Considerations 3.
