Compact junction boxes provide rapid IP68 protection

Hylec-APL is launching a new range of small electrical junction boxes designed to provide a quick and easy-to-wire outdoor waterproof cable connection. Incorporating a silicone gel filling, the junction boxes provide IP68 protection and are claimed to be one of the smallest quick-fix junction boxes with this level of protection available on the market. The range is primarily targeted at outdoor lighting manufacturers, though it would be suitable for many industrial, commercial domestic and applications.

Measuring just 45x95x24mm the new junction box takes up minimal space. The four-way cable entry is available in a range of three sizes to accept cable dimensions between 6.5mm and 12mm diameter depending on the range. The enclosure uses a common terminal block to make the connection, which is then surrounded by silicone gel to form a seal. The enclosure clips shut and can be easily reopened using a screwdriver. The use of silicone gel provides excellent waterproofing, operating temperatures from -50degC to +150degC, and a high elastic memory that allows the box to be re-used. The life span is well over 10 years.

Robert MacDougall of Hylec-APL comments: "Other enclosures on the market that use a gel filling to secure the contents do not facilitate reuse. The Paguro range does not require the gel to be mixed during installation and its high elastic memory means it is possible to remove and fix a connection then replace it without replacing the gel. This allows a level of practicality unavailable from other gel filled enclosures."

An ingress protection rating of IP68 at a depth of up to 1.3m makes the enclosure suitable for underground connections for lighting systems. The Paguro junction boxes are available in blue, green and yellow, which indicates which cable diameter they are suited for as well as providing an aesthetically pleasing connection when on display. The junction boxes are packaged "˜ready to use' and include the terminal block and screws required for making the connection and the silicone gel.

The manufacturer of the junction box has over 30 years of experience in designing enclosures. The full range is available to national stockists and direct to distributors and contractors. Hylec-APL maintains a large UK stock profile that reflects customer requirements at the company's centrally located HQ and distribution centre in Northamptonshire, well-suited for providing short lead times.
