Weather Proof Junction Box

VSM Plast being based in the western part of Indian state of Maharashtra and the industrial triangle of Mumbai, Pune, and Nashik, we accustomed the needs of our customers ( who are also manufacturer and supplier to other industries) has to implement our electrical junction boxes are optimise to adverse weather conditions of India from Capricorn rays (UV) of sun to waterproof in pouring monsoon of tropics!

Sometime Junction boxes when exposed to UV light and very hot and cold weather, they bloom and become inadequate to protect the electrical equipment. But VSM make junction boxes tackle this imminent threat from weather through quality material that can stand to extreme weather fluctuations in any climate.

VSM Plast, weatherproof enclosures are available in thermoplastics such as fiber reinforced polyester (FRP) enclosures, polycarbonate enclosures and aluminum enclosures.

Our IP67 rated waterproof aluminium junction boxes design to protect from rain and water jets, making them perfect for joining electrical assemblies inside enclosure.

Which most common conditions encountered by junction boxes to be called weatherproof?

  • Particulate Matter such as dirt, dust and other substances that can jam and corrupt electrical elements.
  • Very high or low temperatures
  • Ice formations due to low temperature on the surface of the enclosure
  • Precipitation including rainfall, hail and snowfall.
  • Exposure to industrial strong chemicals and solvents.
  • Temporary or extended submersion in water.
  • Corrosion from seawater spray or aerosolized salt.

Once you’ve got a working idea of what risks your electronic devices will possibly need to confront, you can begin to narrow down your options for an enclosure. Fortunately, there are some industry standards that you can use to clearly understand what a certain enclosure will protect against.

Which IP Ratings Does Your Enclosure Need?

Once you figured out what type of outdoor exposure your enclosure must bear while in the working state then you can look for the IP ratings it requires. IP(Ingress Protection) ratings are international industry standards for ingress enclosures and are the most critical factors for selecting the right one.You can find the right ingress rating your application needed in the table as given below:

The IP (Ingress Protection) Rating Table
The first digit dictates enclosures ingress protection rating against solid particles and second digit against liquid
IP Ingress protection against solid objects IP Ingress protection against liquids
0 No Protection 0 No Protection
1 Solid objects over 50mm 1 Vertically falling drops of water or condensation. Limited ingress protection
2 Solid objects over 12.5mm 2 Falling drops of water when product tilted up to 15 degrees from vertical. Limited ingress protection
3 Solid objects over 2.5mm 3 Sprays of water up to 60 degrees from the vertical. Limited ingress protection
4 Solid objects over 1mm 4 Protected against water sprayed from all directions – limited protection
5 Dust,limited ingress with no harmful deposits 5 Protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions– limited protection
6 Dust tight 6 Protected against high pressure jets of water from all directions– limited protection
7 Protected against the effects of immersion between 15cm & 1m
8 Protected against the effects of immersion between 15cm & 1m
