OAKWOOD, GA — Mencom Corporation introduces a new system for the insertion and sealing of cables for harsh manufacturing environments.
The new KADP cable entry system offers a simpler and faster assembly for inserting and sealing cables for enclosures, machines and junction boxes. Through the pre-punched membrane, standard cables with diameters from 1.5mm to 20mm can be simply pushed into the control cabinets, panels or machines and sealing with an IP66 rating. In comparison to traditional cable glands and cord grips, the cable entry system provides 10 times faster assembly time and a higher packing density, thanks to the tight fitting entry points. In addition, it takes 50 percent less space than the traditional solutions, which is ideal for cabinets with limited space.
The frame of the cable entry plate is made of a robust hard plastic molded with industry grade elastomer and it provides a simple & quick tool-free installation by snapping it into a rectangular opening. The KADP series fits into a standard cutout for the size of 24-pin industrial multipole connectors (11mm x 36mm) and can be mounted in a wall with a thickness from 1.5mm to 2mm. If the thickness is greater than 2mm, the cable entry plate can be attached with M5 screws.
Below are applications where KADP series can be utilized.
- Mechanical and plant engineering
- Measuring and control technology
- Drive engineering
- Mobile studio- and lighting technology
- Wind power and solar energy technology
- Electrical installation
