pushbutton boxBud Industries (Willoughby, OH) has introduced its PBB Push Button Box, giving customers a low price alternative within its existing line of NEMA plastic enclosures for automation. Plastic push button boxes offer high corrosion resistance in washdown, humid and outdoor environments. Their light weight is said to be 20 times lighter than comparable steel boxes which makes them easier to handle and install. The new push button box combines polycarbonate plastic and 10 percent fiberglass; the polycarbonate offers improved shatter resistance, and the fiberglass allows for more consistent molding that results in tighter tolerances and therefore a more reliable seal. It has a NEMA 4X / IP67 rating that keeps out dust and water in extreme conditions and meeting the requirements of UL 746C with respect to ultraviolet light and water exposure. Typical applications for the new enclosure include:

  • Control boxes.
  • Terminal blocks.
  • Motor starters. Lighting.
  • Corrosive environments.
  • Chemical plants.
  • General factory environments.
