Junction Boxes

This section describes how to use junction boxes. These junction boxes are used to connect device loops. They are connection points for wire only and do not have any associated loads.

If you need to create a junction box with a load, model it using either a receptacle or an equipment connection.

Junction boxes are never connected directly to a circuit. Any circuit they are connected to is based upon the devices that are connected to the junction box itself.
