Quality Outlet Boxes Protect Electrical Connections
January 1, 2020
Electrical hookups, whether on a dock or boat, must withstand harsh conditions. Weatherproof FD boxes and angled adapters from Hubbell Marine help assure a secure flow of safe, reliable power of up to 50 amps under all climactic conditions.
Available in gray, white or yellow finishes, Hubbell's fully UL-listed surface mount FD box accepts single or duplex Twist-Lock® receptacles. It offers the option of a tapered 3/4" or 1" NPT threaded hub to ensure a fully watertight seal to the conduit. Crafted from high-impact thermoplastic with an integrated stainless steel mounting/grounding bracket, it includes four external mounting feet sized for #10 screws. The 30 cubic-inch FD box provides easy, code-compliant installation of devices from 15 to 30 amps.
Adding the companion 55° angle adapter creates a fully code-compliant, 45 cubic-inch solution for 50 amp, 4-wire installations. The downward-facing design reduces cable strain while providing a natural insert angle to reduce the possibility of bent prongs when handling the shore power plug. It can also be installed separately for panel applications.
The suggested retail price for the Hubbell Marine weatherproof FD box is $39.95; the companion angled adapter is $21.05. They're available together as a kit for $49.95.
