Easy-actuation terminal blocks added to Hylec’s Debox SL in-line junction box
Hylec-APL has announced the launch of a revamped model of its popular Debox SL in-line junction box featuring redesigned terminal blocks.
Debox SL was the first-ever completely toolless in-line electrical junction box that has sold millions of units since its original launch seven years ago, now it's receiving an upgrade.
The new Debox SL models have green twin-lever actuators on the 4-pole 16A terminal block which are labelled N (neutral) E (earth) 1 and 2. The actuators are easier to see against the white interior of the Debox SL, facilitating placement of wires, and they are also easier to actuate, requiring only a quick, fingertip push to open and close to secure the wires quickly. The terminal blocks are UL/VDE compliant as in previous models and can accommodate two, three or four conductors in round or flat profile cable between 0.5-2.5mm in diameter. Wiring up for LED lighting, ring main projects or power applications is fast and convenient: wires are simply pushed into the terminal block, the green levers actuated, and the cables clamped securely with the push-fit cable clamps at each side. The cable clamps comply fully with the EN60670-22 Pull Test. The Debox SL can then be locked closed with the included locking clip and secured to external structures if required with the pop-out mounting ears in the lid. There is also a spare locking clip included, enabling the Debox SL to be re-closed should it be opened at some subsequent date.
Ergonomic design and convenience for the electrical professional are at the heart of the design of the Debox range: all components are supplied with Debox SL and there are no loose components that can be dropped or lost.
Manufactured in flame-retardant UL 94 V0 polypropylene and conformant to EN60598-1 (Glow wire test 650°C), Debox SL is 100% maintenance-free. The new Debox SL models are available from mid-February through all quality wholesalers.
