28-09-2022 | Hylec-APL | Subs & Systems

Hylec-APL's full range of patented Debox electrical junction boxes are designed to save electrical contractors time and effort in each wiring project, internal and external. As well as its Debox ranges, it also offers its metal and ABS door enclosures, lidded box enclosures, safety isolator switches, control switches and cable glands.

The latest model in the range is Debox 11, a versatile and robust IP66/IP67-rated surface-mounted junction box with a total of ten cable entries, complete with five screwless three-way lever connectors. Specifically created for interior or exterior use on projects such as exterior lighting, outbuildings and anywhere exposed to water or dust ingress such as industrial environments, it also has four PCB fixing posts in the base to take a PCB mounting plate. The maximum voltage is 400V, 32A. The model is manufactured from black, RAL9003 flame-retardant, impact-resistant polypropylene and is rated for use in temperatures ranging from -30C to +100C.

The enclosure ranges are manufactured in ABS, polycarbonate, galvanised steel and stainless steel to high specifications, are available in a wide range of sizes and conform to specified IP, IK, UL and relevant international rating standards. Door enclosures are all lockable, metal enclosures have pre-wired earth straps, and many models have the option of solid or transparent doors for easy inspection of contents. The company's DN multi-purpose outdoor range is provided with DIN Rails, screws and everything required for efficient and time-saving installation.

Also offered are IP66-rated ISOLATOR switches, providing fast, safe electrical isolation for industrial machinery, commercial buildings, power supplies and security equipment. Manufactured from completely flame-retardant polycarbonate, rated to UL94V-0, they supply an additional margin of safety over competitive products with a lower flame-resistance rating.
