The latest game-changing product from Hughes Electronics is PosiBox, a brand-new, advanced cable Break Out Box.
PosiBox ends the problem of poor DC connections by evidencing best practice installation techniques at-a-glance whilst keeping DC connections dry and safe from condensation.
A tough transparent PC cover provides PosiBox users with crystal clear, unambiguous views of DIN rail setups in an instant. DC connections and safety issues have never been easier to diagnose, DC Quality Audits have just become, simple, swift and safe.
Good quality DC is worth protecting long term too.
PosiBox combines innovative technology options such as a one-way pressure relief valve to stop climatic pressure and corrosive condensation build-up, a common problem in ferrous products. In addition, a built-in humidity indicator signals the presence of humidity and notifies auditors of maintenance requirements.
A further unique option is PosiBox's radical functional earth feature, an external grounding point provides a positive route to earth for system equipment, PosiBox’s dedicated path to true ground ends the problem of Foucault’s or eddy currents (looping electrical currents within the structure.
PosiBox - Clearly a new standard in DC
In Passive technology, it’s the details that matter, Hughes take care of those details!
