RACO Introduces the Dugout Transition Box

Hubbell RACO/TayMac/Bell
South Bend, Indiana April 28, 2020 - RACO introduces the Dugout box, designed for pulling wires through from MC cable to conduit. It offers the quickest and easiest way to transition from flexible armored cable to conduit before entering a circuit panel. RACO, part of Hubbell's Commercial Construction brands, provides innovative electrical products to commercial, institutional and residential markets.

Designed specifically for commercial applications, RACO's new Dugout box builds on the success of the Grand Slam box. Just as in baseball, hitting a grand slam is spectacular but you still have to bring it on home. The Dugout box is a wiring trough that provides flexibility, space and labor savings for transitioning from a number of circuits in MC cables to conduit for entering a circuit breaker box.

The model SC082006STRC Dugout box features built-in STAB-IT® cable clamps, RACO's unique design which is field-proven 3x faster than traditional MC connectors. These clamps quickly and securely install flex, MC, MCI, MCI-A, HCF and AC cables. The 21 included STAB-IT clamps to hold up to 42 MC cables. Four concentric knockouts are provided for connecting conduit.
 
RACO's transition pull-through box ships with a surface mount cover and a ground bar for quicker termination of grounds. Suitable for wall or ceiling mounting. This new UL Listed product provides electrical contractors an effective way to reduce installation time while resulting in a cleaner installation.

Designed and assembled in the USA, the RACO Dugout Box will be available by May 2020. Find more information at www.hubbell.com.
