Bud is all about making the customer’s life easy and our new PTK Molded knockout box is the perfect example. These NEMA/IP rated enclosures come with pre-molded knockouts to make field installation of equipment or modifications quickly and cost effectively. While Bud is always happy to install holes or slots in our standard enclosures, in an industry leading 5 days, being able to use existing knockouts is the most rapid and cost effective approach. These are not the typical flimsy knockouts that one finds in many competitive situations but rather strongly molded so that there is no risk of accidentally dislodging the covers.
This series has non-metallic screws to attach the covers. They are polycarbonate with 10% glass fibers for reinforcement, creating the strongest and most impact resistant material. With an IP67 TUV rating and a UL508/NEMA 4x and 6 listing, they can operate in virtually any environment from factory floor to under periodic submersion. It has a continuous poured foam gasket to allow for a high quality seal even with repeated opening. Available in 10 sizes from 4.33 x 3.15 x 2.76 to 6.89 x 4.92 x 3.94 with both opaque and clear lid options, there is a size in this series to meet you most demanding enclosure requirements. All of these are in stock today at your favorite Bud distributor and if you need more holes than the knockouts provide, Bud can add additional features as fast as 5 days. At Bud, we continue to lead the industry in offering the best protection at the best prices.
