Abstract: front page image
(EN) This invention provides a junction box which can easily bridge and separate terminal portions of conductive plates provided in the box. Bus bars 2 are arranged vertically and in parallel in the box. A cover 1 of the box is provided with an opening 3 which is closed and opened with a lid 5. A shorting terminal 9 is mounted by guides 18 on a rear side of the lid 5 slidably in a direction of bridging the bus bars 2. The shorting terminal 9 has contact portions 11 which are spaced from each other by the same distance as that existing between the bus bars 2 and adapted to elastically clamp the bus bars 2. The shorting terminal is accommodated in a casing 13. When the lid 5 is closed, each bus bar 2 enters into the corresponding contact portion 11 of the shorting terminal 9 to close the shorting circuit. When the lid 5 is opened, the bus bar 2 leaves from the contact portion 11 to open the shorting circuit.
