With Icotek’s membrane-based cable entry plates, cables without connectors can be quickly routed into control cabinets, electrical panels or machines. They’re also sealed with certified protection class up to NEMA 4X / IP68. Compared to traditional solutions, such as cable glands and cord grips, the packing density is greatly increased. This, combined with a reduction of required space, makes this icotek cable entry plate system a great cable management solution.
Icotek’s cable entry plates consist of a robust hard frame made of plastic or metal which is completely molded with elastomer. At the plate front there are pierceable membranes for various cable diameters, on the back there are conical cable sleeves to ensure a double sealing of the cables. This unique grommet design also provides a good strain relief.
These cable entry plates are assembled within seconds. Simply put a small slit into the thin membrane and push the cable through.
The cable entry platesKEL-DPU,KEL-DPZandKEL-DPare available in various sizes, for round and rectangular cut-outs, for screw or plug-in mounting. With a mounting height of only 8 to 14.5 mm the plates are very flat and have a smooth and flat surface, which prevents dirt collecting recesses. The cable entry plates are perfectly suited for applications in medical technology, food industry packaging or clean room areas.
The cut-out sizes match either metric cut-outs or are based on those for 24-pin industrial connectors.
For routing supply lines with diameters of up to 115 mm, icotek offers innovative pyramid shaped cable entry grommetsKEL-DPF,KEL-JUMBOflex andKEL-ULTRAflex, which are perfectly flexible for feeding rigid supply cables at angles with very little effort.
Approvals and standards such as flame class UL 94-V0, IP rated ingress protection, UL, NEMA, EN 45545-2, ECOLAB detergent resistance and ATEX enable icotek cable entry plates to be real alternatives to conventional cable glands.
