SX (Stainless Steel) Ex e Enclosure

The SX junction box range comprises 14 sizes of enclosure manufactured in 316 stainless steel. It is certified for use in Zone 1 and 21 hazardous areas

Depending on the size, enclosures are available in standard depths of 140, 200 or 300mm and can be fitted with removable gland plates on any or all of the four sides. Entries may also be drilled through the rear face of the enclosure.

The SX range features a high level of ingress protection (IP66/67 and Type 4X.

Another advantage of the SX range is that it is suitable for fire resistance applications and when fitted with ceramic terminals meets the requirements of IEC 331 (750C for 3 hours) and also BS6387/1983 (950C for 3 hours).

Designed for simple installation and ease of use, the enclosure door is held to the enclosure by at least 4 captive stainless steel screws. These maintain the correct compression on the gasket. The oversize hinge design enables the screws to control the closing of the door, not the hinge, its only function being to support the door when opened. The hinges allow easy removal of the door with only minimal opening required before removal (less than 10).

Earthing is accomplished by means of an external/internal earth stud fitted as standard which can be connected to the terminal mounting rail or component mounting plate and optionally earth studs can be fitted to the door and gland plates.

Rail mounted earth terminals or proprietary earth bars can be fitted inside the enclosure.

A mild steel version (MSX) is also available and can be supplied with a number of paint options (most RAL colours available) and anti corrosion finishes.
