Control panel construction
Cable management & EMC cable shield earthing for control panels, enclosures and cabinets
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 shielding.
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 IP66/IP68 / UL 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 IP66/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 offer several strain relief plates for various mounting methods.
EMI cable shield earthing is very important. The area where the cable shield is connected to the enclosure earth 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 and 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 UL rated protection, UL recognition or ATEX which makes icotek a strong and reliable partner for electrical engineers.
