FOUNDATION Fieldbus junction box

Field Network Q&A

How do I select a new junction box to connect to my FOUNDATION Fieldbus network?

Expert’s answer: FOUNDATION Fieldbus junction box

Okay, the FOUNDATION Fieldbus junction box comes with a list of specs. Here I listed most of them:

  • Enough space for all equipment
  • Material like stainless steel or glass-reinforced plastic
  • Spare fieldbus trunk pairs on terminal blocks
  • Complete box certified for hazardous area setup
  • Wire size 12–24 AWG
  • Terminal block suitable for 12–24 AWG wire
  • Short-circuit and surge protection for each spur

While that may not cover everything, it should get you started. Also, your junction box manual should address its specific details.
