Control Panel Construction

Cable Management & EMC Cable Shield Grounding for Control Panels and Electrical Enclosures

Control panel construction is required in numerous areas: Building technology, electrical engineering, industrial automation, power distribution, network technology, telecommunications... In these areas, electrical engineers are confronted with deadlines and cost pressure. High demands are placed on individual control panel solutions, short production time and high quality at low costs. icotek offers highly efficient and cost-effective solutions for every control panel application in the fields of cable feed-through, cable management and EMC cable shield grounding.

Cable entry control panel base
KEL-U cable entry frame IP54: Routing of several partially preterminated cables with various diameters (up to 35 mm) through the control panel base. Tool-free mounting with snap frame.
Cable entry control panel roof
KEL-U / KEL-JUMBO cable entry frames IP54: Routing of several partially preassembled cables as well as a large diameter supply line through the control panel roof.
EMC cable shield grounding
EMC cable shield clamps SFZ|SKL with integrated strain relief: Grounding of high frequency interferences at the cable shield. Mounting on 35 mm DIN rail shale H.
EMC signal cable shield grounding
EMC cable shield clamps SFZ|SKL with integrated strain relief: for strain relief and grounding of signal lines on decentralized bus modules.

Split cable entry systems and cable glands by icotek enable a fast, safe and cost-effective way to feed several preassembled cables (e.g. circular M connectors, Profibus, D-Sub, multi-pin power plugs...) through control panel, cabinet or enclosure walls, bases or roofs without voiding the warranty of the cables. icotek split cable entry components also seal the entry points with up to IP65 / NEMA type 4X rated protection and provide strain relief according to EN 62444.

Cables without connectors as well as pneumatic and hydraulic hoses can be routed through membrane based multi-cable entry plates which provide up to IP67/IP68 and NEMA type 4X rated protection. Many of our cable entry components are suitable for standard cut-outs of heavy multi-pin industrial connectors (e.g. by Harting, Molex...) or fit on round metric cut-outs from M16 to M85.

For applications with lower ingress protection requirements (e.g. for server racks) icotek offers brush plates and brush strips for round and rectangular cut-outs.

For installation of icotek cable entry components we offer numerous flange plates and assembly systems for enclosure bases, walls and roofs of many manufacturers (e.g. Rittal, Pentair Hoffman, Fibox...). For a secure and structured cable management and strain relief of electrical lines icotek offers several strain relief plates for various mounting methods.

EMI cable shield grounding is very important. The area where the cable shield is connected to the panel ground is a critical point. It is very important that the connection has a low resistance (EMC). icotek SKL cable shield clamps are a low cost but highly effective und universal solution. SKL clamps can be installed on mounting rails, the panel wall itself or directly on frequency converters, drives or bus modules. In comparison to conventional EMC brackets an up to 50% higher contact area can be achieved when using the SKL line.

In general, icotek products have a high quality and outstanding efficiency. All icotek products are quick and easy to install and to be assembled with cables, during the initial installation as well as in case of maintenance or retrofitting.

The icotek cable entry components comply with important approvals and standards like IP and NEMA rated protection, UL recognition or ATEX which makes icotek a strong and reliable partner for electrical engineers.
