Athena Controls, Inc., has announced availability of its new Prewired 5, 8, 12-Zone Mold Junction Box for Hot Runner Wiring. Each junction box is completely assembled, pre-wired with marked zones, and contains terminal strips for accurate wiring. Boxes contain a 25-pin power connector for 15 AMP/240 zones, a 10-, 16- or 24-pin thermocouple connector, and feature an innovative design that makes hot runner wiring fast, easy, and logical.
