Buy waterproof junction box, IP protection grade is a very important factor. According to IEC-60529, the first number of, IP (Ingress protection) grade is the shell's ability to resist the invasion of solid particles, while the second number indicates the shell's ability to protect against water droplets. Most Reicom Waterproof Junction Box IP grades reach IP65 (and a few reach IP66), which means it can be adapted to a more demanding use environment.
The IP rating is defined solely for the shell, but the equipment should also meet the requirements after installation, that is, if the waterproof junction box requires the installation of a cable connector, The level of protection should be higher than that of the box (mainstream waterproof cable joints on the market are up to IP68 standards)
Choose the right size
Of course, choosing the correct size of the waterproof box is based first on the size of the existing components and the location of the equipment. However, we should also consider whether new components will be added in the future, and if so, whether there is enough room for it.
