Cable Entry Systems - the Perfect Connection Between Control Units and Machinery

Mechanical engineering Cable Glands Cable Management

Hardly any industry is as diverse as mechanical engineering and plant construction. From machine tools, injection molding, printing and packaging machines to large plants in chemical and environmental sectors, customers demand the highest quality and service. At the same time, due to international competition, mechanical engineers are constantly striving to optimize costs and processes. icotek offers efficient and cost-effective solutions in the field of cable management in mechanical engineering.

Split cable entry systems and cable glands by icotek enable a quick, safe and cost-effective way to feed several preassembled cables (e.g. with multi-pin power plugs, circular M connectors, Profibus, D-Sub...) through cabinet, enclosure or machine walls 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 assembled connectors as well as pneumatic and hydraulic hoses can be routed through membrane based icotek multi-cable entry plates which provide sealing rates of up to IP67/IP68 and NEMA type 4X.

Many of our cable entry components are suitable for standard cut-outs of heavy 24-, 16- and 10-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 icotek offers brush plates and brush strips for round and rectangular cut-outs.

For a secure and structured cable management and strain relief of electrical lines icotek offers several strain relief plates for various mounting methods.

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 and in maintenance or retrofitting cases.

The icotek cable entry components comply with important approvals and standards such as IP and NEMA rated protection, UL recognized, ATEX, ECOLAB detergent resistance or UV resistance according to ISO 4892-2A, which makes icotek a strong and reliable partner for the mechanical engineering industry.
