Icotek KEL cable entry systems from Buttkereit are ideal for use with cable assemblies that incorporate large or moulded-on plugs and connectors.

The systems secure and positively seal flat cabling when passing through bulkhead apertures associated with machine building and control panel assemblies.

The system comprises polyamide rigid frames, each with two-hole fixing, which can be supplied in four sizes to accommodate a range of flat cables and including additional round cables in the larger frames if required.

These frames are used in conjunction with captive elastomer inserts, which provide both cable strain relief as well as cable sealing up to IP54.

Buttkereit said considerable assembly time and costs can be saved with these products, which are particularly suited to cable assemblies incorporating large or moulded-on plugs and connectors, which would otherwise require remedial wiring before installation.

The cable entry frames can be supplied suitable for 23mm deep apertures in 43, 65, 86 and 116mm width slot sizes.

Type FT cable sealing inserts can be supplied suitable for flat cables from 5.5 to 10mm in thickness and from 19 to 77mm in width.

Round cable sealing inserts (type KT) can be supplied for cables from 3mm up to 34mm outside diameters.

Blind inserts (supplied without any pre-formed cable holes) are also available for both round and flat cabling applications, allowing for future cable runs to be incorporated.

Individual frames can also be combined with different sized inserts (dependent upon size) to suit a range of flat cables either with/without additional round cables for maximum installation flexibility.

Both the polyamide frame material (rated UL-40 VO) and the elastomer inserts (rated UL-94 VO) are both halogen- and silicon-free and compatible with temperatures from -30C up to 90C (for inserts) and 140C for the frames.
