Junction box slashes installation time

Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components, enclosures and rack systems, has announced the launch of DEBOX, an in-line junction box that has been completely re-imagined, simplifying and speeding up installation. Not only does DEBOX reduce time on-site, thereby reducing the overall cost of installation, it also offers greater flexibility.

DEBOX features a registered design that maximises efficiency at every stage of installation. Unlike competing products, each junction box is supplied as standard with a four-pole terminal block which is secured on a push-fit mounting pole. This means that the installer always has everything he needs immediately to hand, and there is no chance of items being dropped or mislaid.

Continuing the easy-to-use theme, a ratchet arm is used to secure the cable within the junction box, which allows it to accommodate both flat and round cable whilst still producing secure cable retention. A fixing pin is used in place of a screw, clipping the lid in place quickly and efficiently. Finally, two mounting ears are included which allow the DEBOX to be securely fastened in place, relieving tension from the cables.

DEBOXs are constructed from flame-retardant UL94V-0 and carry an IP44 rating. They have been manufactured to conform with EN60598-1(13.3.2) 650 degree Glow Wire. Installation requires only a screwdriver to tighten down the terminal screws – Push Wire termination can be used to completely eliminate the need for tools.

Mark Severn, Director of Sales for Hylec-APL, comments: “DEBOX is a good idea made better. The virtually tool-free design means that installation is faster than using competing products and installers never need hunt for a terminal block, dropped screw or missing fixing ever again. DEBOX suits internal and outdoor applications, including lighting.”
