Cable Entry Frames

Cable Entry Frames for Cables

ICOTEK’s patented KEL cable entry system offers the option to use pre-terminated, as well as standard cables without connectors, in NEMA 4X/IP65 rated enclosures. This is thanks to their split frame and slit cable grommets which are placed around each cable when the frame is installed.

“During the assembly the slit grommet matching the cable diameter is placed around the cable and inserted into the frame. The grommet is now securely fixed inside the frame and can’t fall out. Once the lid is affixed to the base frame, it is compressed and tightly sealed.” ICOTEK Cable Entry System Product Page

Need to wire in a new part in an old enclosure? Or maybe you are simply doing some routine maintenance and don’t feel the need to take apart the entire system to replace a single cable? ICOTEK has you covered with their split cable system which incorporates easy to assemble gland halves. 

“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.” ICOTEK Cable Gland Product Page

Split Cable Glands

membrane based cable entry plates are the perfect solution for routing cables when space is a factor. Unlike traditional cable glands and grips which add on unwanted packing density, these entry plates are designed with space and installation in mind while still offering certified protection up to NEMA type 4X/IP68. Great for applications in the medical field, food packaging, or clean rooms these plates are designed to prevent dirt/dust collection. 

“The cable entry plates consist of a robust hard frame made of plastic or metal which is completely molded with elastomer. At the plate front we have 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.” ICOTEK Cable Entry Plate Product Page

Cable management, not the most thought about of the engineering processes…but ever so important. Without clean and easy to maintain cables any application can become a nightmare. ICOTEK’s solution is their universal cable relief plates which work perfectly for any application while still remaining more flexible and cost-effective compared to their metal and plastic competitors. 

“The undercut on the comb shaped profile of the strain relief plate provides a secure hold of cables with diameters from 5 to 20 mm when using regular cable ties.” ICOTEK Strain Relief Product Page

  • Assembly in multilayers is possible

EMC Cable Clamps

In the world of process measurement and control equipment, protection against failure and EMI shielding/grounding has become ever more of a factor. ICOTEK has tested their EMC cable clamps to provide the lowest amount of resistance in order to provide their customers the most efficient shielding possible. 

“All icotek EMC cable clamps for shielding cable diameters from 1.5 to 48 mm have been tested utilizing various frequency ranges. In all tests there was minimal leakage resistance. In large frequency fields, the cable clamps provide low resistance. Effective range is up to 1,000 MHz below 120 Ohms and 10 kHz to 100 MHz significant below 20 Ohms. icotek EMC cable clamps are proven to absorb electromagnetic interferences.” ICOTEK EMC Cable Clamps Product Page

Maybe not the most innovative product, conduit remains an important element in a large variety of applications. Perfect for machining, control panels and enclosures, or any application where cable protection is high priority; this easily mounted conduit is just what your cables need! ICOTEK offers both the bulkhead fitting, CONFiX FWS, and their corrugated CONFiX WS conduit depending on your application needs.
