The problem: Dirty control panels

Control panels that are used in industrial production facilities must be reliably protected against the ingress of dirt and dust. Otherwise, the conductivity of deposits can lead to short circuits, and their thermal insulation capacity can lead to overheating of individual components. This can result in machine downtimes and, in the worst case, electric shocks or fire accidents.

The base of a control panel in particular can become a weak point if lines are not sealed sufficiently and the degree of protection of the control cabinet cannot be maintained.

In particular, components for ventilation and control panel air conditioning then  suck the dust into the enclosure and distribute it there.

Dust and dirt …

... are often electrically conductive.
Risk of short circuit!

... can insulate thermally.
Risk of overheating/fire!

... are responsible for 30% of
machine downtimes!

... enter through the control cabinet floor
in 90% of cases!


The solution: The patented KDR systems for panel base cable entry

Prefabricated enclosure base gland plates and modular gland plates with standard cut-outs for our KEL cable entry systems enable a quick and easy install. The KDR-ESR is a one-piece plate to be assembled on enclosure bases. Slide frames for the KEL cable entry frames are already pre-assembled.

Various flange plates that fit e.g. on AX / AE compact enclosures, KX /  KL terminal boxes or BG bus enclosures by Rittal let you easily mount our cable entry devices at your enclosure wall.

Enclosure base plates – 
why the KDR solution is worth it:

  • Sealing of the control panel base with IP54 (certified acc. to EN 60529)
  • Extremely simple assembly / disassembly from inside the control panel. The enclosure does not need to be lifted!
  • During assembly, almost the complete base of the enclosure can be used for installation of cables
  • Even large connectors can be installed easily
  • Retrofitting possible without disconnecting cables. Everything can be built around the cables
  • No additional sheet metal work required
  • Long durability of the seals
  • The icotek flexibility: base plates are designed for Rittal VX25 / TS 8, Häwa H390 / H395 and nVent Hoffman ProLine G2 enclosures. Other sizes can be supplied on request
