New B-Box from Spelsberg offers quick, waterproof installation
22 June 2012
The latest product to be released from Europe’s leading manufacturer of plastic electrical enclosures, Spelsberg els, offers users the double benefit of extremely fast installation and high water ingress protection. The B-Box has threaded cable entry points, which allow cable glands to be connected directly to the enclosure, forming an IP65 seal. Ideal for industrial and external applications the B-Box is also completely halogen free.
With over 100 years of experience in the design and manufacture of electrical enclosures, and the largest stock of products in the UK, Spelsberg has always been at the forefront of the technology. The latest product offering is designed to allow electrical installers and OEMs to make quick and discrete waterproof connections without the need for specialised tooling to drill holes or cleanly remove knock-outs.
Chris Lloyd, UK Sales and Marketing Manager, comments: “When we develop a new product we specify a key demographic or USP that we want to cover. With the B-Box we wanted to offer customers a small, secure housing with easy access and quick installation. From this objective all of the product design features were developed.
“It takes between three and five minutes to make every cable entry when using separate cable glands, plus it’s difficult to do when stood at the top of ladders or on a gantry, plus you often have to carry both tools and components miles around a site if you are an installer. OE manufacturers and system integrators also need to reduce the time taken for wiring and installing machines whenever possible.
“The New B-Box takes literally seconds to install and offers all the security and protection of a top quality electrical enclosure and proper cable glands, without the tools, hassle and time required by more traditional solutions. This fits with our company philosophy of “Space for you”.”
The enclosure is supplied with eight cable entries (two on each side) which all feature M20 threaded entries. Inserts, which protect the enclosure from water and dust ingress at each entry point, are easily knocked out and the attached cable gland forms an IP65 seal without the need for a rubber seal or any additional tooling. Most standard M20 cable glands will fit the enclosure, though Spelsberg can supply cable glands or screw in conduit connectors where specified.
The dimensions of the compact box are 95x95x57mm; this allows for discrete location in many applications while a standard 5 pole terminal block can still easily be housed within. The ‘snap-on’ lid will fit the square enclosure at any angle, further simplifying the process.
The B-Box has two long hole openings at the base that allow it to be easily mounted to walls, ceilings, mounting plates etc. Isolation plugs are supplied to close the openings and retain the enclosures ingress protection.
“Space for you”
Spelsberg’s company philosophy is based around the idea of providing flexibility and freedom to its customers. The space provided within each junction box; the large distribution and warehousing space; and the freedom to customise almost any product, irrespective of quantity, all equates to “Space for you”.
