Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems is excited to announce its new Stainless Steel Sloped Back Box – the only stainless steel back box suitable for use with IEC 60309 pin and sleeve devices.
Designed to shed water and debris while also withstanding exposure to chemicals and oils, the Stainless Steel Sloped Back Box is IP69k and UL Type 4X and 12 rated to protect against water ingress.
Because it minimizes horizontal surfaces and is made of nonporous 304 stainless steel, the device is also easier to keep clean.
In addition to complying with best practices in hygienic design, the Stainless Steel Sloped Back Box also provides ample wire space and supports quick, hassle-free installation.
The back box’s mounting patterns match Hubbell’s Advantage Series and standard IEC pin and sleeve devices. They can support devices ranging from 20A to 100A.
“U.S. food recalls due to lack of hygienic design cost billions of dollars each year,” says Greg McAleer, senior product manager at Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “This new Hubbell back box helps food and beverage processing plants, manufacturers, and pharmaceutical plants achieve hygienic design.”
