Case Study-How to Customize a Distribution Box for Your Project

April 26, 2023

A distribution box is an essential electrical equipment used for the protection, control, and distribution of power. It is widely used in various fields such as industry, commerce, residential, power stations, transportation, and more. To ensure that a distribution box can meet the specifications and maintain safety and reliability, it is crucial to customize it to fit the specific requirements of your project.

Factors to Consider When Customizing a Distribution Box:
When selecting a distribution box, several factors must be considered, including:

Distribution Box 1
  • ♦ The conditions of the application environment
  • ♦ The required capacity for assembling components
  • ♦ Box size and materials
  • ♦ Waterproof level
  • ♦ Heat dissipation requirements
  • ♦ By considering these factors, you can ensure that the distribution box meets the project’s requirements

Example of a Customized Distribution Box

In a recent substation project for a Canadian customer, the distribution box’s stability needed to be ensured due to high coastal locations, humidity, acidity, strong winds, and other adverse weather conditions. The distribution box was customized by using 2mm thickness galvanized sheet material, sprayed with outdoor powder, and equipped with a ventilated and waterproof roof, which improved the protection level. Welding wall hanging codes and lifting rings were added to prevent parts from being lost, and screws from not being tightened due to workers’ careless work attitude. The customer also added configurations such as a three-point heaven and earth lock, a door stopper, welding two sets of grounding screws, opening holes in the bottom plate of the incoming line, and hanging hole locks. These customizations improved the distribution box’s functionality, safety, and ease of use.
