Aug. 9, 2016 – Mencom says its 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 1.5 to 20 mm can be pushed into the control cabinets, panels or machines, and sealing with an IP66 rating, says Mencom, adding that the system provides 10 times faster assembly time and takes up 50 per cent less space than traditional solutions. The KADP series fits into a standard cutout for the size of 24-pin industrial multipole connectors (11 mm x 36 mm) and can be mounted in a wall with a thickness from 1.5 to 2 mm. According to the company, the KADP series is suitable for use in various applications including: mechanical and plant engineering; measuring and control technology; drive engineering; mobile studio and lighting technology; wind power and solar energy technology; and electrical installation.
The cable entry system will debut at IMTS 2016 in Chicago, Ill., taking place September 12-17.
