The innovative junction box ELAK-Ex-R with mounting bracket (Ex-it) is suitable for use in potentially explosive atmosphere in accordance with Ex-guidelines 94/9/CE (ATEX 95) and provides a number of advantages. Thanks to the shape of the box, for instance, it is not necessary to strongly bend the inserted cable thereby avoiding cable damage. Due to the incorporated mounting bracket there is no need to provide angle irons. This is especially advantageous to heat tracing on piping because the cable can directly be introduced via the mounting bracket. Furthermore, fastening screws for heating lines and sensors are not required. A safety locking, with appropriate tool included, prevents the cover to move. Additional features permitting the attachment of sign plates facilitate easy identification of heating circuits in complex systems.
