Foremost Electronics is announcing new additions from icotek's range of cable entry plates, the KEL-DP 25 version A and KEL-DP 32 version A and B. KEL-DP products offer high cable density and are claimed to be a simple-to-use cost saving alternative to traditional cable glands. The KEL-DP is a hygienic design, free of dirt-collecting recesses and provides environmental protection IP65 / UL type 12. The new products fit standard metric M25 and M32 cut-outs and, (depending on the model) up to 13 different cables can be inserted through a single gland. The KEL-DP range can accommodate cable diameters from 5.2 to 8mm and are said to be suitable for mounting in enclosure wall thicknesses from 1.5 to 4mm.
Cable access, says Foremost, is quick and straightforward; the membrane only needs to be gently pierced for the cable can be passed through and the KEL-DP provides good strain relief on the cable bundle. If a cable is removed and the puncture in the membrane is no longer required, it can be safely closed with an icotek ST-B plug. KEL-DP entry plates are designed for routing cables without connectors and are snap-in mounted into the panel cut-out without requiring any tools. Integrated spring bars centre the position of the KEL-DP in the cut-out. Foremost is offering the KEL-DP 25 in version A (for sheet thicknesses from 1.5 to 2.5mm) and the KEL-DP 32 has two options; version A (for sheet thicknesses 1.5-2.5mm) and version B (for sheet thicknesses 2.8-4.0mm). All versions have a height of 5mm.
