I’m building a pool controller with a number of devices i need to put in a weather tight box. I plan to add a power transformer to power most of it (nodeMCU, sensors, etc.). However i will need 2 Power Over Ethernet (PoE) devices that have to get plugged into 120V outlets. I can hard wire these by clipping the plugs and connecting to a terminal - but wondering if installing a single outlet inside the box wouldn’t be cleaner.
I can clearly get outdoor outlet enclosures but i’m looking to put a single outlet inside a larger outdoor enclosure that will house the rest of my devices. Is this as simple as an standard metal outlet box inside the large enclosure? Can’t imagine there will be a heat dissipation issue but you never know.
