Tough IP66 junction box enclosures for multiple applications

09-03-2021 | BCL Enclosures | Subs & Systems

The BN Series of junction box enclosures from BCL Enclosures are constructed from high quality, flame-retardant ABS (UL94-HB) with a solid wall thickness of 3mm-4mm. Created to a robust specification, these tough and resilient enclosures are rated to IP66 to fully protect their contents against dust and particles as well as powerful jets of water. Also, the IK08 rating assures impact protection to five joules, equivalent to a 1.7kg mass dropped from a height of 300mm.

The series is offered with a selection of solid blank lids, designated BN-E, or with transparent lids, designated BN-T. Each enclosure is formed with internal mounting stand-offs and various slots for vertical PCB mounting and is furnished with a 35mm DIN rail section and mounting screws for securing internal components.

The BN-E Series offers solid lids in grey (RAL 7035), with the base also in grey. The series enclosures have grey bases and transparent lids. Lids are securely fastened with the captive plastic screws supplied. Six sizes are offered in each, all 125mm wide and either 125mm or 175mm high. Depth ranges from 75mm to 150mm, depending on the model.

The temperature rating for the series enclosures is between -10C to +80C for employment in extreme environments such as factories, data centres, marine environments and many others.

Suitable applications include usage as cable junction boxes or for enclosing PCBs, control components and Emech components.
