Appleton-042715-body.jpgEmerson Industrial Automation says it has designed a dependable yet highly versatile solution for customers to protect instrumentation, terminals and other electrical equipment with its Appleton® JBEP polyester enclosures and junction boxes.

Providing durability, impact-resistance, and an IP66 rating to prevent water ingress, Appleton JBEP enclosures and junction boxes can be deployed in petrochemical applications, wastewater treatment centers, offshore drilling and other hazardous or highly corrosive environments, including food processing and dairies subject to frequent washdowns.

An advantage of Appleton JBEP enclosures and junction boxes are their fully non-metallic housings that deliver optimum performance in weather-exposed and corrosive locations. The 5mm fiberglass reinforced polyester also provides extreme durability with an IK10 impact rating of 20 joules. In addition, because the material is carbon-filled, it resists static buildup, practically eliminating the risk of electrical discharge.

According to the company, Appleton JBEP Series enclosures and junction boxes are simple to specify with worldwide certifications and no need to recertify after field modifications. Modular in design, the boxes can be easily coupled together to suit application and footprint requirements. The enclosures and junction boxes are also certified for ATEX and IECEx locations worldwide. IEC, cCSAus, NBR, Inmetro, and GOST certifications are pending. JBEP Series enclosures provide a nonmetallic solution for projects in virtually any region or location.
