How to Buy the Waterproof Terminal Block?

The correct choice of waterproof terminal block, the level of IP protection is a very important factor.

water proof terminal block

According to IEC-60529, the IP (Ingress Protection) level is a figure of resistance to the intrusion of solid particles.

Most water proof terminal blocks have an IP level of IP65 (and to a lesser extent IP66), which means that it can be used to suit the higher requirements of the environment.

The IP level is defined by the housing only, but the equipment should also meet the corresponding requirements once installed, i.e.

If the Water proof Electrical Wire Cable Terminal Block is to be fitted with cable glands, the protection level should be higher than the body (waterproof cable glands are available on the mainstream market up to IP68 standard).

Choosing the correct size of Terminal Block Enclosures is, of course, a matter of choosing the correct size of Terminal Block Enclosures based first and foremost on the existing components and equipment to be placed.

But we should also consider whether new components will be added in the future and, if so, whether there will be enough space for them.

Please also note that the reference waterproof junction box with terminal block supplier dimension is either dimensional or internal in size (other manufacturers may differ, but Ricon junction boxes or external or internal dimensions can be found from the corresponding web pages).

It can be fitted usually with less space than the internal dimension provided, it should also be noted.

Note that the standard configuration of the product includes those parts of most manufacturers whose part numbers do not reflect the inclusion of standard accessories.

It is understood that usually a waterproof marine terminal block contains the box cover, box body, seal and box cover screws.

Depending on the requirements, the manufacturer will value optional accessories such as fixing GuaJiao walls, floor mounting, cable connectors, etc.

In order not to cause trouble, it is then sorted to find out what are the standard parts and which optional accessories are necessary.

The working environment of the equipment is usually said to be long enough to buy only the right one, not the expensive one.

The price of water proof automotive terminal blocks also varies considerably depending on the material used.

You should first find out if the equipment will work indoors or outdoors for a long time. If it is the former, we recommend the relatively low-priced ABS water proof terminal block, which has excellent overall performance and can meet the construction needs of the interior in general;

If it is an outdoor environment, it is better to use polycarbonate waterproof terminal block, whose products have better performance than ABS material such as weather resistance, heat resistance, flame retardant, UV resistance and aging prevention, of course, a higher price.

What is a Water Proof Terminal Block?

The water proof terminal block is used for the introduction, fixing and protection of optical cables, fusion splicing and protection of optical fibres, storage of pigtails, etc.

It is used for the connection between external optical cables, optical terminal equipment and optical cables, and is widely used in optical fibre communication network projects. This series of products are wall-mounted, easy to use and maintain.

In addition to the chassis itself, its standard accessories include fiber optic heat shrinkable tube, insulation tape 1 roll, 3 expansion bolts, 3 screws, nylon ties (5 per tray), (fusion fiber tray according to customer demand free configuration).
