Round cable entries for diameter combinations up to 22.5 mm

CONTA-CLIP further expands its KES-E cable entry program for screwless mounting, adding metric 50 mm variants: the new KES-E-R cable entries allow for quick and secure feeding of cables into control cabinets or machine housings. The plates are simply manually pressed into the machined openings. The inner, elastic sealing lip of the profile seal bulges on the inside of the panel, ensuring secure and vibration-proof hold. In order to feed cables or hoses into a housing, users simply pierce the surface membrane at one of the marked center points and push the conduit through. The new KES-E-R cable entries are available in seven A and seven B versions for cables and pneumatic hoses with diameters from 1 mm to 22.5 mm. The A versions are suitable for wall thicknesses from 1.5 mm to 2.5 mm, the B versions for 2.5 mm to 4 mm. Different versions hold up to 35 cables or conduits, thus allowing for extraordinarily high packing densities. The cable entries provide IP54 protection against dust and splash water. They are made of TPE and are free of halogen and silicone. The material is suitable for ambient temperatures from -40 °C to 90 °C.

Three-level terminals with push-in connection

CONTA-CLIP expands its terminal block range featuring push-in connection for 2.5 mm˛ cross sections, adding the new PIKD three-level initiator terminals and multi-wire terminals. Push-in connection allows for easy, time-saving wire insertion without tools. The PIKD line is designed for 500 V rated voltage and 20 A rated current. The terminals can withstand a rated surge voltage of 6 kV. They comply with overvoltage category III and pollution degree 3. The compact terminals are 5.1 mm wide, 56.2 mm high and, depending on the model, 86 mm or 102 mm long. Their slim, tall housing geometry and wire insertion from the top enable optimized use of the available space in control cabinets. Various models cover different signal and power distribution scenarios: PE terminals, terminals with vertically connected levels for potential distribution and combined PE and feed-through terminals. Special shorter versions with a reduced number of contacts are supplied with the same height to enable uniform connection levels in cramped installation situations.

Hygienic door handle for tool-less mounting

CONTA-CLIP has launched HYDH, an ergonomically optimized Hygienic Door Handle that is quick and easy to install. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, hospitals and other public institutions and commercial buildings have a greater need for hands-free door handles as a way to lower the spread of infection. Various manufacturers have launched products that are operated with the forearm instead. However, most existing solutions require screw attachment, can slip or tilt, or come in two different versions for left and right hinged doors. Therefore, CONTA-CLIP has designed a universal hands-free handle that fits left and right hinged doors with round, oval, or rectangular latches and that allows for secure attachment without screws or tools. Featuring an ergonomic jacket design, HYDH allows for comfortable use with the forearm or elbow. The one-size-fits-all clasp is simply slipped onto the door handle where it latches tightly. Flexible spacers facing the door keep it firmly in place even if it is pushed or pulled with strong forces. If fixed with the tamper-protection clamps included in delivery, HYDH can afterwards only be removed with a screwdriver. Made of durable, chemical-resistant plastic, the hygienic door handle withstands frequent disinfection with aggressive cleaning agents. HYDH is available in nine colors. In addition, CONTA-CLIP offers to provide individual colors, lettering, or logos for hotels, restaurants, and other customers interested in maintaining a uniform corporate design. More information as well as a short demo video on installation of the door handle are available at www.hydh.de.

Screwless cable entry system

CONTA-CLIP further expands its KES cable management program, adding the KES-E version for screwless mounting. The cable entry plates enable quick and safe feed-in of non-assembled cables and conduits into control cabinets and machine enclosures, without the need for cable glands. The new KES-E cable entry plate can be installed without tools thanks to the all-round profile gasket. The plate is simply pressed into a 36 mm x 112 mm standard opening in a cabinet or housing wall. The profile gasket's elastic inner sealing lip tightly curves around the opening inside the housing, ensuring a tight and vibration-proof hold. The initial KES-E launch comprises nine variants in “A” and “B” versions for cables and pneumatic hoses with diameters from 1 mm to 16 mm. The cable entry plates are suitable for wall thicknesses “A” from 1.5 mm to 2.5 mm or “B” from 2.5 mm to 4 mm. Depending on the design, these plates hold up to 48 cables or conduits, thus allowing for extraordinarily high packing densities. The cable entry system provides IP54 protection against dust and splashing water ingress. Its smooth surfaces, rounded corners, and ECOLAB-certified material resistance to industrial cleaning agents ensure the necessary hygienic properties for use in the food or pharmaceutical industries and suitability for ambient temperatures from -40 °C to +90 °C.

Sealing elements for maximized cable packing density

Developing the KDS-DES sealing elements for unassembled cables, CONTA-CLIP has transferred the simple cable entry principle of its KES system to its KDS cable feedthrough system: to insert a cable, the membrane of this, newest sealing element is first pierced at the marked center, whereupon the cable can be pushed through the selected channel. The design based on the proven KES system ensures reliable sealing according to the degree of protection IP54. The KDS-DES variants currently available accommodate up to eight cables, depending on the cable diameter, which can range between 4.5 mm and 10.5 mm. Despite the high packing density, KDS-DES sealing elements are compatible with almost all KDS solutions. Like those, they are pressed into the frame openings for installation from the inside. Their conical shape allows for easy insertion and reliable sealing of gaps.

KDS/KES-VS sealing plugs

CONTA-CLIP expands its range of accessories for the KDS and KES cable management systems, adding sealing plugs. The KDS/KES-VS plugs have a mushroom head that prevents complete insertion and allows for easy removal. They are available in diameters between 1.5 mm and 22 mm. The sealing plugs provide flexible and reliable sealing of feedthrough channels according to protection degree IP66. Their protruding edge provides additional protection against splashing water and dust. The plugs can be used to quickly seal KES openings that have been perforated; and they allow for pre-configuration of KDS sealing elements for cable assemblies that can be completed at a later point. CONTA-CLIP's KDS and KES systems enable tool-less configuration of cable and conduit feedthroughs and entries, as well as subsequent changes without compromising the ingress protection degree.
