A rectangular junction box is available from Pratley that is both Ex e and IP68 certified.
Known as the Enviro Rectangular Junction Box, the company describes it as an extremely tough, reinforced 10-way box with 10 open and two drillable bottom entries. Pratley Clip Retaining Blanking Plugs can be fitted to unused entries.
“It is an extremely versatile box with a long list of features,” said Marketing Director Eldon Kruger. “It comes standard with an integral earthing harness, a patented cranked terminal rail, a clear polycarbonate or black hinged lid, a lid gasket, four stainless steel lid screws and an identification tag for easy circuit identification or for quick recording by inspectors.”
The earthing harness ensures integrated earth continuity between the entries. The cranked terminal rail guarantees maximum space for quick and easy insertion of conductors into Pratley Kwikblok terminals. For ease of mounting, the junction box is provided with four slotted mounting lugs.
“Of course, like all Pratley Ex e boxes and glands, it also incorporates a red Ex identification ring built into the lid. This means that it can be identified as an Ex box from a distance. Both the installer and the inspector were top-of-mind when we developed this product.”
The junction box accepts No. 0s, No. 0 and No. 1 (20 mm) cable glands. Its tough reinforced engineered plastic makes the junction box completely impact- and corrosion-resistant. If required, it can be supplied with a standard N35 rail on request.
The Enviro Rectangular Junction Box is accompanied by an ever-expanding range of Pratley electrical termination products, including cable glands, terminals, end connectors and sleeves, electrical tapes, cable retainers and lugs and ferrules.
“All Pratley products, including the Enviro Rectangular Junction Box, are designed and manufactured according to our policy of producing products that out-perform all others on the world market,” Kruger said.
