The installation requirements for the distribution box

June 26, 2021

The installation requirements for the distribution box.

1.The distribution box should not be installed in a humid, steam, or corrosive place. It is generally installed behind the door or at a place where it is easy to open and close the upper part of the shoe cabinet by the door.

2.The installation height should be 1.5m away from the ground.

3.Leakage circuit breaker should be set in the distribution box; the leakage current should not be greater than 30MA. There is an overload protection function, and several outlets should be separated to control the lighting and air conditioning sockets. The circuit should ensure the normal use of the load.

The leakage switch and air switch in the distribution box are arranged neatly and indicate the name and number of the electric circuit of each circuit to control the lighting, air conditioner, and socket.The distribution box should be installed in a flat, firm, reliable, and safe place.

The installation requirements for the distribution box

The distribution box is made of non-combustible materials, so the open-type distribution boards can be installed in production places and offices with a low risk of electric shock. We should install closed cabinets in processing workshops, casting, forging, heat treatment, and boiler rooms with a high risk of electric shock or poor working environment, Wood workshops, and other places. The closed or explosion-proof electrical facilities must be installed in dangerous workplaces with conductive dust or produce flammable and explosive gases.

Usages of distribution boxes: convenient for power outages, play the role of measuring and judging power outages and transmission. Easy to manage and convenient for maintenance in case of circuit failure. Distribution boxes and switchboard distribution vouchers are complete sets of devices for centralized installation of switches, meters, etc.

The electrical components, meters, switches, and lines should be neatly arranged, firmly installed, and easy to operate. The bottom surface of the floor-mounted board (box) should be 5~10 mm higher than the ground. The center height of the operating handle is generally 1.2~1.5m. There is no obstacle within the range of 0.8~1.2m in front of the box. The connection of the protection line is reliable, and it should be not outside of the box. The bare live body is exposed. The electrical components that must be installed on the outer surface of the box or the switchboard must have a reliable shield.

The distribution box is mainly divided into two parts

One is a complete set of the housing of the distribution box and its related metal accessories.

The second is the electrical components, including switch, relay, breaker, and wiring ect.

E-ABEL distribution box has IP66, which can effectively prevent water vapor and dust from entering the box. The bracket can arrange the components flexibly and efficiently to meet the requirements of neat arrangement.
