Shield - Test: forklift wheels drive over Distribution Box

Try the same test with competitors' distribution box.
This test shows how robust Shield's distribution box is.
The weight of the empty forklift is 2,450 kg during the first pass, but during the second pass it is with a load too: the total weight is about 3,700 kg.
Shield's distribution box and spider splitter are the most compact and robust box enclosure in the market.
Distribution boxes with IEC 61076-2 M8 and/or M12 sockets are used more and more frequently in the wiring industry.
They can be applied in numerous fields such as industrial hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical automation, illumination systems, trucks, construction equipment, railways, naval wiring, etc.
