Say Goodbye to Tangled Cables with Rittal

When it comes to cable entry points, installation engineers often need nerves of steel. Indeed, if enclosures are being set up directly at the place of use, installing the cable entry point by fitting cumbersome connectors through the gland plates is often an arduous and time-consuming job. This is where easy-install solutions are called for – such as connector grommets from Rittal.

Without the right system, pre-assembled cables are always going to present a challenge when it comes to cable entry points. Thanks to connector grommets from Rittal, there is a simple, flexible solution for introducing pre-assembled cables into the base area of housings and enclosures.

The sealing system features a modular design and comprises an outer cover made of polypropylene with thermoplastic elastomer and a rubber seal. This versatile system can create a secure seal that satisfies the IP 55 standard around cables with a diameter of between 8 and 36 mm.

Simple handling means that entry points can be rapidly sealed, even after wiring. Cables are pushed into the cable entry plate to fix them in place, while the protection category of the enclosure is retained.

Rittal Launches Slotted Cover Plate for Electrical Distribution Systems

rittal-launches-cover-plateRittal, a leading global provider of solutions for industrial enclosures, power distribution, climate control and IT infrastructure, has announced the launch of a new cover plate for shielding live components within electrical distribution systems.

 

The plates, which are transparent and made of slotted insulating material, can be cut and formed to protect smaller moulded case circuit breakers inside control gear or switchgear assemblies.  They can be used to cover all the live parts behind the door of an installation, helping panel builders to comply with the IEC 61439 standards by offering protection to IP2X.

Each plate is 1200 x 800mm and 3mm thick, making them relatively easy to store and handle. The integral vent holes allow convection of warm air inside the assembly, ensuring an uninterrupted air flow within the compartments.
