Prewired electrical junction box Patent #: 4924032
AbstractA junction box for making electrical connections between an electrical cable and an electrical fixture is disclosed. It includes a housing having a plurality of parallel, spaced apart walls and an open front with at least one of the walls having a plurality of cable ports therethrough. Each port is capable of receiving an electrical cable having a plurality of cable wires. A plurality of parallel, spaced apart busses is disposed within the housing, each having a plurality of cable wire contact elements for making electrical connections with the cable wires, and each having at least one fixture-wire connector for making electrical connections with at least one of the wires from the electrical fixture. An attaching element is placed at each of the cable ports for attaching the cables to the junction box and for maintaining electrical connection between the cable wires and the busses. The busses are disposed in relation to the cable ports so that any standard electrical circuit can be constructed by inserting cables into predetermined cable ports and engaging the associated attaching element, and by inserting fixture-wires into predetermined fixture-wire connection members.
