May 18, 2016 – CONTA-CLIP is introducing KDSclick, a new cable entry system that is designed to minimize the time needed for deployment, including assembly of an individual configuration. KDSclick achieves IP65 ingress protection.
The system comprises three basic components – frames, inlays and sealing sleeves – due to its modular design: unlike conventional systems that require the frame to be opened and then screwed closed again to insert the sealing sleeves, CONTA-CLIP's solution is based on a robust, but lightweight single-unit plastic frame.
Creating frame openings in the desired size is enabled with click-on inlays, which are available as simple partitions, as tees or as cross and double cross forms. 18 frame variants for different wiring requirements can be readily assembled this way. CONTA-CLIP provides 39 different sealing elements to allow for the sealing of various wire diameters as well as feeding several cables through one frame opening. The conical shape of the sealing elements is particularly user-friendly: after sheathing a cable, the elements are fed from the inside of the cabinet to the outside through the frame openings created by the inlays. Thanks to conical tapering, the sealing elements are pushed into the frame openings/inlays. As a result, they seal cable gaps and serve as a strain relief with secure hold on the cabinet exterior. At the same time, the sealing elements can be removed again, e.g. when new or additional wiring is necessary. For cabinet assembly, the frame comes with the same mounting hole layout that is used as a standard for heavy duty connectors – the cable entry system thus fits into the cabinet openings without any special machining of material. CONTA-CLIP launches the new range with 107 x 71 mm frame dimensions. Four additional frames for larger and smaller dimensions as well as a frame with a snap lock for assembly/disassembly are due to follow.
