New Debox SM40 is smallest in-line junction box on the market

Hylec-APL has launched the new Debox SM40, the smallest 4-pole junction box available on the market, specifically designed to fit inside the smaller 40mm ceiling apertures of today’s ranges of ceiling downlights. Measuring only 80mm wide x 35mm deep and 25mm high, Debox SM40 is available for the wholesale trade in single or double packs in outer cartons of 400 units, or in a handy counter display unit containing 72 pieces.

Despite its small size, the Debox SM40 offers generous cable management space internally and can be wired in seconds. The installer simply inserts the cables into the 4-pole terminal block and tightens the terminal screws, lowers the tool-less cable clamps and secures the lid with the supplied locking clip, which can only be opened with a tool to comply with current regulations.

Debox SM40 is supplied complete with all components, including a 4-pole terminal block suitable for round cables, maximum 24A. The housing is white thermoplastic, flame-retardant to UL94V-0, and Debox SM40 is also compliant with BS EN 60598-1 requirements (Glow Wire Test to 650degC.) and the EN 60670-22 Pull Test.
