Flexicon protects circuit integrity with Connectabox circular junction box

Flexible conduit systems manufacturer Flexicon has launched Connectabox, a weatherproof, IP68/IP69 circular connection box. The company says it provides a faster and simpler way to interconnect circuits and wiring assemblies, while offering superior cable protection for external environments.

Connectabox has been designed to protect safety and performance-critical cabling and simplify cable management. The 110mm, round junction box offers a wide range of features to make installation simpler and faster.

In contrast to conventional enclosures, which utilise knockouts or require drilling, Connectabox features four easy-to-connect entry points as standard. These provide quick access and termination for different sizes and types of flexible conduit, from 16mm up to 34 mm, using Flexicon Ultra (FPAU) push fit connectors. 

Significant time savings on the job are promised with the intelligent push, twist and lock connector system with integral seals. Flexicon says contractors can make a reliable connection in seconds, without having to remove knockouts, drill holes, fit locknuts or even torque tighten any components.

Flexicon says its design engineers have incorporated many innovations to increase the available wiring space inside the connection box. The cleverly designed two-part lid is also available with an extended lid version, for applications requiring even more internal wiring space or where more box depth is required.

The Flexicon Ultra (FPAU) push-fit conduit fittings are installed without the need of a protruding thread or locknut to secure, thus maximising internal space even further. There is also no need for any tools or torque tightening, as the fittings lock and secure into place with a simple twist forming a watertight seal.

The push-fit connection to the box is universal, thus installers can match the fitting with the desired size of conduit necessary for any outlet. If in the future the wiring installation needs to change, to extend circuits or add cables, this can be done with ease, thus futureproofing the installation.

Connectabox is compatible with a range of accessories, including internal mounting plates, and is suitable for use with DIN rails allowing terminal blocks and components to be configured neatly and quickly.
