Product Description

Volt's "Zone Control" Junction Box

Hubs are an easy, efficient way to insure that you have done your layout properly. They virtually guarantee perfect results, bright even lighting, prevents over/under volting. Additionally all your connections are in one place (so they are easy to trouble shoot/service). Lastly, with VoltPro’s exclusive above ground Hub System, all your connections are above ground in a dry, weather tight junction box – not in the ground exposed to constant moisture and harsh electrical conditions like traditional connections or even competing hub systems.

Hub System compatible fixtures have 25’ lead wires on them. You place the hub in the middle of a distance zone; run a cable from the transformer to the hub. Inside the hub connect all the fixtures to the end of the cable. Do not cut excess lead wire from the fixtures—leave all fixtures with their original 25’ (this insures that all fixtures are have the same total amount of cable from the fixture to the transformer. The end result is a home run with several fixtures branching off the end of it like a flower stem (home run) with multiple flower pedals (the fixture wires). Electricity has to travel exactly equal distances from the transformer to each fixture, plus there are no daisy chained fixtures – perfect layout. Lastly measure the voltage in any one fixture (it will be the same for all of them on that hub). If the voltage is below 12 volts, move that run up to the appropriate voltage tap on the transformer until the fixtures have between 11-12 volts. For hub Systems you can use more fixtures per run, up to 200 watts worth of fixtures.

To hub or not to hub, that is the question:

You don’t have to hub every fixture or only use hubs with “Hub Compatible” fixtures that have 25’ lead wires (although it certainly is convenient). Hubs can make a great junction box for spider splicing several main cables together (10-2 or 12-2 cables). Many direct burial connectors can’t handle several thick gauge cables connecting together – hubs make for a convenient, dry, above ground place to make these connections. When doing more than a T connection but a spider splice with several cables in one place—hubs are great. Many fixtures in one area – hubs are great.

Realistically most installs call for a combination of layout methods—most fixtures hub connected, some far away fixtures that are not grouped together will have the cable run “T” –d off to reach them with a couple daisy chained in line off the T. Some T’s will be connected with a regular direct burial splice because there are only 3 wires in a T. Another run may have 4 or 5 cables coming off the home run more like a flow, and thus have the home run hooked to a hub. Lastly many might have the fixtures wires connected to the cable home run via a hub as a hub system is traditionally used. No layout or property is the same, and you will have to use a variety of techniques. The end goal is to be a champ and get all you fixtures to output between 11.25-11.75 volts for perfection!


Volt's "Zone Control" Junction Box Features

  • Note: Connectors NOT included. If you want them, you must order the splice connectors from the drop down menu.
  • Connections are inside a sealed compartment. Other manufacturers use an open design with the connections underground and exposed to the dirt/water/humid conditions and insects.
  • Sealed body
  • Removable top
  • 8 rubber cap sealed cable entrance/exit holes
  • Brass threaded spike screws
  • Stake included
  • Mount on a stake above ground for easy access or bury without a stake only exposing the top when discreet mounting is desirable.
  • The Volt "Zone Control" Junction box is a must for most landscape light layouts.
  • Have one cable from transformer to the "Zone Control" Junction Box, then several cables coming out of the hub that go to different fixture areas.
  • As common sense would tell you, a junction box is a place to make all your splices instead of having make separate home runs all the way back to the transformer. As with any electrical layout, you can wire in series or parallel. A hub enables you to wire in parallel thus reducing the voltage drop you get when wiring low voltage in series.
  • Having a junction box out in an area reduces the need for many long runs back to the transformer, reduce cable usage, provide more efficient, flexible layouts.
  • Most importantly enable you to properly reduce voltage drop.
  • Lifetime Warranty

Empty Container for Wiring Connections November 28, 2015
Reviewer: Doug Coates from Portland, OR United States  
I thought this item would contain connectors inside that would allow me to securely connect my wires, but it is completely empty inside.  If its an empty container and I still have to buy expensive connectors, then the container is WAY too expensive for what it is.  

It looks nice though, and if I had to make connection out in the open instead of inside the hedge, it would have some value.

manage voltage drop, plan for maintenance September 17, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Columbus, Ohio  
I used three of these to replace the wiring to a set lights connected with insulation displacement connectors to a trunk of 12 gauge run past each light with no slack.  Over the years those cheap connectors that were not rated for burial were buried in mulch which became dirt.

I wired 12 gauge feeds to three locations and then connected each light with its own 14 gauge wire (spliced to each light with waterproof butt connectors).  Now the maximum drop is only 1.1V and all the lights on that feed have the same drop so moving to the 13V tap eliminates the difference between zones.

Now each light has its own feed and we only have three splices that are enclosed and above ground instead of exposed on the surface to be buried in mulch added each year.  Each light can be individually disconnected or moved, too.

The boxes are made of heavy plastic to last and are easily tucked behind existing landscape plants to hide them.

essential for larger installations September 14, 2015
Reviewer: Carl from Bath, Ohio  
I used 3 of these to route the wiring of 18 fixtures to one transformer. Using the bronze surface mount, I was able to create a very large network spanning two staircases and multiple levels.  The 25-ft lead wires provided with the fixtures made connections possible without any additional line to reach each hub.  The DryConn connectors really secure the connections inside the hub.  This is my second project using Volt lighting, and I really can't find a reason to use any other brand.

Perfect for consistent runs May 29, 2015
Reviewer: BarrNone Technology from North Augusta, SC United States  
Plenty of room to work in and make it really easy to keep runs the same length -  minimizing voltage drop among several units.  simple "plastic hollow cup".  Nothing fancy, but effective

Zone control May 7, 2015
Reviewer: Max from Riverview, FL United States  
Im a DIY person, and had no idea what this was really for.  Got it thinking it was an actual hub, and it is one, but is completely empty in inside. You just connect your cables all together in there.  Once I figured it out they do work pretty good as a hub spot.
