OAKWOOD, Ga.–New rectangular hoods recently introduced by Mencom Corp. are reported to offer a number of features to meet the demanding requirements of the wiring market. The BIG Series hoods have larger dimensions than the standard hoods, provide additional space, and accommodate larger sizes of cables and additional entry holes, the company said in a press release.

The new enclosures are reported to be 23mm wider and up to 34mm higher than the current enclosures. Despite the larger sizes, the BIG hoods are still fully compatible with existing rectangular connectors and accessories, the company said.

The hood compartment is designed with an upper and lower half connected by 4 screws with O-rings, providing easy access during assembly and up to three times more space versus standard hoods. The enclosures enable the connection of push button selectors, switches, and signaling lamps after the necessary holes have been drilled. It is possible, for example, to enable power supplies or signaling circuits even after the connector has been coupled, according to Mencom (mencom.com).

The hood entry is available in one or more top and side entries and a closed enclosure that can be drilled.
