By using split cable glands by icotek, pre-terminated cables or complete cable harnesses with diameters from 2 to 34 mm can be quickly routed into enclosures, cabinets or machines and sealed with NEMA 12 / IP54 rated ingress protection (certified according to DIN EN 60529:2000-09 / UL50-E). In addition, the cables are strain relieved due to the integrated cord grip function.
The split system enables quick and easy assembly which is great for retrofitting and maintenance. The prefabricated cable is placed into the slit grommet which is set into one of the gland halves. Depending on the size of the cable gland, one, two or four separate grommets can be installed. The two gland halves can be easily snapped together without the need of tools.
The assembled lines are securely sealed and held inside the cord grip grommets. To mount the cable glands, either snap it into the round metric standard cut-out (sizes available from M16 to M63) or screw it with a hexagonal locknut. The mounting method is dependent on the model type.
The different model ranges of the icotek cable glands KVT and QVT offer various application possibilities:
For cable glandsKVT, icotek offers special locknuts which are suitable for routing D-Sub, DVI, Patch, USB, VGA or PROFIBUS plugs. The split cable glandKVT-W90enables cable and conduit feed-in at a 90° angle to the enclosure or machine wall. For added protection choose theKVT-ERseries with IP65/IP66/IP67/IP68 rated protection.
Because of its extremely small structure, theQVTrange is especially suitable for small machines, devices and instruments.
The above mentioned snap-in cable glandsKVT-SNAPandQVT-CLICKare ideal for mounting without any tools and are suited perfectly when maintenance and retrofitting.
The split icotek cable glands comply with important standards like flame class UL94-V0, IP rated ingress protection, UL, NEMA, German Lloyd, ECOLAB detergent resistance and the European railway standard EN 45545-2 for fire safety.
