Conta-Clip reveal their latest cable entries
Published: 9 July 2019 - Christian Lynn
Connection technology expert Conta-Clip supplies versatile components for simple and time-saving cable management. The tool-less KDS and KES cable entry systems enable easy routing and flexible rearrangement of cables and conduits in enclosures and control cabinets, with reliable strain relief and IP66 ingress protection. To install any number of differently sized and shaped cables, enclosures no longer need to be fitted with variously sized openings, reducing the machining effort to a minimum. This enables manufacturers to supply fully sealed, preconfigured machine enclosures and control cabinets without knowing the exact final wiring requirements.
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 features a frame that can always stay in place once it is installed – removable sealing elements in different sizes can be inserted to change the assembly as needed. As a result, stock-keeping costs are also significantly reduced, since there is no need for various same-size enclosures with a range of different, prepared openings.
The KDSClick system consists of only three basic components: frames, inlays, and sealing elements. The sealing elements are available in over 100 variants, for diameters ranging from 2mm to 35mm, with 1, 2, and 4 slots, for industrial flat ribbon cables, and as blind plugs. The frames are available for 4, 6, 8, or 10 sealing elements. Featuring an injected foam gasket, they 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 simply 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 ideal for control cabinets that require a lot of wiring.
Conta-Clip furthermore 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.
