Does the Xo unit need to be placed inside a weatherproof enclosure, or can it by left exposed to the elements?

Xo is designed to be placed outside and not in another enclosure. The  enclosure is rated IP65, which means “rated as dust tight and protected against water projected from a nozzle”. For all intents and purposes, Xo should be fine when not in an enclosure, but if you are concerned about water intrusion or potential submersion, then you can certainly place it in another enclosure, but you’ll require an external antenna, as the integrated antenna’s signal most likely won’t properly penetrate an additional enclosure layer.
