Hylec-APL
    One Size Fits All…

    Latest IP68 Junction box from Hylec-APL offer gel-filled protection in one of the smallest footprints on the market.

    Hylec-APL has expanded its range of weatherproof products to include the latest ‘one-size-fits-all’ Paguro junction box. The small sized junction box, utilizes an innovative adaptor which allows it to accommodate a wide range of cable diameters whilst still maintaining good cable retention. The junction box comes ready packaged with a silicone sealing gel to ensure that it offers IP68 protection.

    The latest Paguro junction box, available exclusively from Hylec-APL, is supplied with specialised adaptors for the entry points which allow for secure entry of cables ranging from 6.5mm to 12mm Ø. With a small footprint of only 44x95x24mm, the enclosure takes up a very minimal space and is supplied with either a 3 or 4 pole terminal block; making it ideal for a number of outdoor applications - the 4 pole connection lending itself perfectly to outdoor lighting for example.

    The Paguro uses a specially developed silicone gel to ensure that the connection has an ingress protection rating of IP68 to a depth of up to 1.3m; making it ideal for underground connections. Unlike most products that use a gel solution that requires mixing during installation and sets solid after use, the Paguro is supplied ‘ready-to-use’ with a certified operating temperature ranging between -50°C to +150°C; the gel has a high elastic memory which allows the connection to be opened and closed several times if necessary.

    Terry Spriggs, Product Marketing Manager of Hylec-APL, comments: “We are always looking to develop our products and services to help improve the experience of our customers. The new product still provides the high levels of protection and small footprint but now has a new degree of simplicity – with the new adapter you are only ever going to need to specify one product for numerous applications.”

    The Paguro is promoted exclusively by Hylec-APL based in Wellingborough and is available via national UK stockists and direct to distributors and contractors from Hylec-APL. Hylec-APL provides free impartial advice and product samples to help ensure the right connection is made every time.
