USE CTC CABLE REDUCTION BOXES WITH SWITCH BOXES OR MAXX BOXES

Cable reduction boxes are a great way to save money on long cable runs and eliminate cable clutter.

CTC cable reduction boxes can reduce the individual cables of 12 or 16 accelerometers to one multi-conductor cable. Input wiring from each sensor is wired to the enclosure via three-position terminal blocks. Each terminal block includes three inputs – positive, negative, and shield, which is earth grounded via an external ground stud mounted to the side of the enclosure – as well as three outputs for corresponding wiring.

Multi-conductor cabling with 12 or 16 paired wires within a PVC jacket is wired to the output side of each terminal block inside the enclosure. The cable exits through the bottom of the box as one single multi-conductor cable to provide input to a vibration switch box or MAXX box for data collection.
