Foremost adds icotek’s alternative to traditional cable glands
Importer and specialist distributor, Foremost Electronics, announces that it now offers the latest
additions to icotek’s range of cable entry plates. The KEL-DP 25 version A and KEL-DP 32 version A and B offer high cable density and are a simple to use cost saving alternative to traditional cable glands, says the component distributor.
The KEL-DP is a hygienic design, free of dirt-collecting recesses and provides environmental protection IP65 / UL type 12.
The new products fit standard metric M25 and M32 cut-outs and, depending on the model up to 13 different cables can be inserted through a single gland. The KEL-DP range can accommodate cable diameters from 5.2 to 8mm and are suitable for mounting in enclosure wall thicknesses from 1.5 to 4mm
Cable access is quick and simple, says Foremost. The membrane only needs to be gently pierced for the cable can be passed through and the KEL-DP provides very good strain relief on the cable bundle. If a cable is removed and the puncture in the membrane is no longer required, it can be safely closed with an icotek ST-B plug.
KEL-DP entry plates are designed for routing cables without connectors and are snap-in mounted into the panel cut-out without requiring any tools. Integrated spring bars centre the position of the KEL-DP in the cut-out.
The KEL-DP 25 is available in version A (for sheet thicknesses from 1.5 to 2.5mm) and the KEL-DP 32 is available in A and version B (sheet thicknesses 2.8 to 4.0mm). All versions have a height of 5mm.
Other icotek EMC shielding products available from Foremost include shield clamps, cable glands, strain relief plates and cable entry systems. This portfolio also includes the EMC-KVT-DS, believed to be the world’s first split EMC cable gland for pre-assembled cables which also provides IP54 protection for use in extreme outdoor conditions.
