What Is A Junction Box?
As you’re likely now aware, based on our first two blogs, the Flux Connectivity team prides itself on providing manufacturing solutions that both enable high performance and extreme safety. You’ll notice that in each of our definitions for wire harnesses and cable assemblies respectively, we highlighted the significance of the materials used to promote safety. As you can imagine, protecting people from the flow of electrical current is of paramount importance. An industrial junction box can be defined as an electrical enclosure that securely unites multiple wires and cables through various ports of entry. Junction boxes can come in many different sizes depending on the number and type of connections required. Standard junction boxes for simple power distribution applications can measure 2 x 3 x 2.5 inches and can hold up to three wires. Larger junction boxes used in industrial applications are often custom built to support many different types of wire and cable entering and exiting the box. The junction box is mounted to a structural point on either a building or on machinery.
