What are the differences between the Defender Series™ entry panel boxes and the Interceptor Series™ junction boxes? 

Entry panel boxes are designed for the following:

Designed to be mounted on wall of house.  Provides convenient outdoor entry point for cables and arrestors.

Large hole in back of box allows cable passage through wall into house.  Conduit can be used through wall.  Cable flow is from bottom up.

Cables enter box via grommets or larger openings for conduit (or both).

Arrestors are lined up horizontally across box.

Boxes are horizontally oriented.

Can be made in galvanized steel, aluminum, or stainless in multiple gauges.  Powdercoated in one of 20 colors.

Available sizes:  (Height x Width x Depth)

    Small             10x10x4”

    Medium         14x14x4”

Junction boxes are designed for the following:

Arrestors are lined up vertically down box, and cables enter from bottom left, pass through arrestors, and exit bottom right (inverted U configuration for cable flow.)

Recently NG7M installed both a Junction Box and an Entry Panel at his QTH, and his great video shows both units plus give some detail on how to install them.  His photo album shows more views as well.

Despite the different designs, either box can be custom configured with most features to suit your circumstances and needs.  Call or email me for more information, Chris at KF7P dot com.
