Icotek Launches New Cable Entry Frames for the Food and Beverage Industry

Jan. 31, 2024
Icotek’s KEL-ER-BL is versatile regarding cable sizes and cables with and without plugs in the food and beverage sector.

KEL-ER-BL is icotek’s newest cable entry frame and is made for cables with and without plugs. Cables with a diameter of between 1 to 35 mm are inserted, sealed with IP65, and are simultaneously time strain-relieved in accordance with DIN EN 62444. IP65 protection is gained through the injected seal and through the utilization of single grommets. During the assembly, the cable grommets are placed into compartments and are firmly fixed into the frame. Finally, post-assembly the end cover is screwed on.

“The new cable entry frame fits standard cut-outs for 10-, 16- and 24-pin heavy-duty connectors. The cut-out size can be up to 46 mm instead of 36 mm, meaning that cables with larger connectors can also be routed. The size KEL-ER-BL-B is based on cut-out size 46 x 46 mm (e.g. for controllers and meters). The single-row version KEL-ER-BL-E is characterized by its space-saving design and is ideal for confined spaces and for cables with flat connectors (e.g. Sub-D).”

Icotek’s KEL-ER-BL in signal color blue is mostly used in food packaging and food processing machine environments where there is no direct contact with food. However, other products with the same signal color are also frequently utilized in the pharmaceutical sector. The shipment includes an additional blue flat rubber gasket with samples, certificates, and more information being supplied by contacting the manufacturer.
