SA…P series junction boxes are made from fibreglass-reinforced polyester. Because they are highly resistant to contamination from fuel oils and mechanical shock, in addition to being lightweight and practical, they can be installed in all industrial plants, especially those where there is a potential risk of explosion and/or fire due to the presence of combustible gases or dust, classified as Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22.

The enclosures have special holes made in the base for easy wall mounting. The lid features a silicone gasket that is resistant to low and high temperatures and comes complete with AISI 304 stainless steel screws, which are arranged around the outside of the lid to ensure a tight seal with the IP66 rating. SA…P series enclosures are mainly used as junction boxes/for routing cables for analogue or digital signals and/or for control and monitoring associated with equipment such as motors, fans, pumps and/or for giving physical readings such as flow rate, level, pressure, temperature, current, etc.. Terminal strips can be arranged inside the enclosure in various different configurations. The Cortem sales team will be able to advise you what enclosure best meets your needs based on: maximum number of terminals, number of holes per side, minimum distance involved and maximum power dissipation, ensuring everything is within the limits allowed by the certificate. ‘Ex e’ control, monitoring and signalling devices can be mounted on the lid in various different configurations based on your requirements and within the limits allowed by the certificate.
TYPE AND APPLICATION
Choosing an appropriate container is a key step in the project development process, making it essential to approach the decision systematically, evaluating all variables methodically: where our equipment is being installed, the environmental conditions on site, what degree of protection it must have, what space is available and how it is due to be set up. Once you have processed all this information, you should be able to determine which product best suits the design requirements in question.
The first factor to consider is what environmental conditions the equipment is going to be installed in, whether it will be indoors or outside, and what environments it is required to operate in: pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical, food, shipbuilding, agricultural industries…
The size of the space available for inserting the enclosure and its components must be determined early on in the process.
Taking into account the technical aspect, product design and appearance is also important in ensuring the equipment to be installed in the enclosure is integrated seamlessly. A Cortem team of experts is on hand every day to address your questions and come up with the best solutions.
