Digi-Key Corporation Announces Stock on New American Electrical, Inc. Junction/Hook-Up Boxes

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - January 5, 2010

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced it has stock on American Electrical, Inc.'s new junction/hook-up boxes.

These boxes, available with 5, 10, 15, and 20 feed-through terminals, are in stock and available for purchase on Digi-Key's global websites. Additionally, these products will be featured in future print and online catalogs.

The labeled feed-through terminals inside these boxes are top-entry, spring-loaded connections, which allow the user to simply insert a screwdriver in one side to open the clamp, insert the wire, and remove the screwdriver to make a secure connection. The box lid uses a spring-loaded half-turn application, which makes it easy to open or secure the cover. These junction/hook-up boxes are rated for indoor and outdoor use with four external mounting holes should the application warrant a permanent location. Additionally, two M20 cable grips and locknuts are shipped with the boxes to fit the cables into and out of the boxes as needed.

A PTM Online...On Demand® product training module, available on Digi-Key's website, provides additional information on American Electrical's combination junction/hook-up boxes as well as step-by-step instructions for terminating wires in the enclosures.
