Bud Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of electronics enclosures, introduces the JB Series junction box to its existing line of NEMA box enclosures for the industrial market. It costs 15 to 20 percent less than junction boxes from other major enclosure suppliers, and it is fully-compliant with NEMA 1 and UL-50 Type 1 ratings.
The new NEMA 1 junction box is constructed of heavy-duty 16-ga welded steel for long-lasting protection against fires and other hazards. It is appropriate for all types of industrial and commercial electrical wiring, as well as factory automation applications.
Bud’s NEMA 1 junction box features a flat top with removable screws, key holes for easy assembly, and durable ANSI 65 grey powder coating. Knockouts on all four sides of the NEMA 1 junction box are easily removable and handle industry-standard conduit sizes for electrical connections, circuitry and low-voltage wiring devices. There are also four wall mounting holes in the back of the unit, and an embossed grounding hole in the bottom to allow for flush wall mounting.
Because of Bud’s unique manufacturing efficiencies and stocking structure, the JB Series junction box is priced below those of other major suppliers such as Hammond and Hoffman. Cross-reference part numbers and information available from the Sales Department. In addition, modification requests are accepted. In addition, Bud is more willing to make custom modifications than some suppliers; see video at http://ow.ly/5QopL.
