Cable entry systems, grommet based

for cables with connectors

Cable entry frame for pre-terminated cables

Using the patented grommet based icotek KEL cable entry system, pre-terminated as well as standard cables without connectors can be routed into switch cabinets, control panels or machines. The cables are also sealed and strain relieved.

The cable entry system KEL is completely split. It consists of a split frame and several slit cable grommets. During the assembly the slit grommet matching the cable diameter is placed around the cable and inserted into the frame. The grommet is now securely fixed inside the frame and can’t fall out. Once the lid is affixed to the base frame, it is compressed and tightly sealed. The high compression pressure ensures strain relief according to EN 62444 and certified sealing rates up to IP65 / NEMA type 4x.

Depending on your specific requirements the grommet based KEL system has various models which provide you with the perfect solution. Whether you use  the KEL-ER series which is designed for extreme conditions and high degree of ingress protection, the KEL-E system for very limited space or the KEL extensions for routing a very large number of lines you can be assured to get the highest quality. With our KEL-JUMBO series you can even accomodate supply lines up to 75 mm in diameter.

For applications with lower requirements on ingress protection icotek offers components for cable pass-through with brush seal, specifically designed to feed cables easily into server racks, switch cabinets and through raised floors and walls.

The icotek cable entry systems comply with important approvals and standards like flame class UL94-V0, IP rated protection, UL, NEMA, German Lloyd, ECOLAB detergent resistance or the European railway standard EN 45545-2 for fire safety and are therefore suitable for various industries.
