Screwless cable entry system for safe feed-in
CONTA-CLIP has expanded its KES cable management program, adding the KES-E version for screwless cable mounting. The cable entry plates enable quick and safe feed-in of non-assembled cables and conduits into control cabinets and machine enclosures, without the need for cable glands.
The new KES-E cable entry plate can be installed without tools thanks to the all-round profile gasket. The plate is simply pressed into a 36x112mm standard opening in a cabinet or housing wall. The profile gasket's elastic inner sealing lip tightly curves around the opening inside the housing, ensuring a tight and vibration-proof hold.
The initial KES-E launch comprises nine variants in ‘A’ and ‘B’ versions for cables and pneumatic hoses with diameters from one to 16mm. The cable entry plates are suitable for wall thicknesses ‘A’ from 1.5 to 2.5mm or ‘B’ from 2.5 to 4mm. Depending on the design, these plates hold up to 48 cables or conduits, thus allowing for extraordinarily high packing densities.
The cable entry system provides IP64 protection against dust and splashing water ingress. Its smooth surfaces, rounded corners, and ECOLAB-certified material resistance to industrial cleaning agents ensure the necessary hygienic properties for use in the food or pharmaceutical industries and suitability for ambient temperatures from -40 to +90°C.
