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.

I work in a petrochemical company, and we hope to use a FOUNDATION Fieldbus network. So, could you explain what architecture we can build in an FF system?
