Cable entry systems from Conta-Clip protect to IP66 ingress
Tool-less KDS and KES cable entry systems enable easy routing and flexible rearrangement of cables and conduits in enclosures and control cabinets, says Conta-Clip. They also provide reliable strain relief and IP66 ingress protection.
They can be used to install any number of differently sized and shaped cables, without having to fit enclosures with different-sized openings, thus saving machining effort. It also enables manufacturers to supply fully sealed, pre-configured machine enclosures and control cabinets without knowing the exact final wiring requirements.
The one-piece KES plates with push-through membranes enable high-density routing of up to 32 unassembled cables, wires, or conduits. The multi-part KDS system has a frame that can always stay in place once installed. Removable sealing elements in different sizes can be inserted to change the assembly as needed. This reduces the need for extensive inventory and lowers stock-keeping costs as there is no need for various same-size enclosures with a range of different prepared openings, explains Conta-Clip.
There are three components to the KDSClick system: frames, inlays, and sealing elements. The sealing elements are available in over 100 variants for diameters ranging from 2.0 to 35mm, with one, two, and four slots, for industrial flat ribbon cables, and blind plugs. The frames are available for four, six, eight, or 10 sealing elements. They also have an injected foam gasket to preserve the IP66 protection rating even on painted or rough surfaces.
To accommodate the selected sealing elements, various inlays (available in I, T, +, and ++ shapes) can be inserted in the frame. KDS-FP flange plates hold two or three KDSClick modules and provide space for a total of up to 30 sealing element positions, making them suitable for control cabinets that require a lot of wiring.
Conta-clip offers the KDS-R series for quick, tool-less assembly in metric M20 to M63 round enclosure openings. This system consists of a frame with an integrated gasket, a thread and locking adapter, a locknut, and sealing elements with optional inlays. The KDS program also includes KDS-FB frames for industrial flat ribbon cables. These are available in four frame widths and different partitions for flat as well as round cables.
