Video: Modular cable entry installed from the outside

30 September 2022

The inverse and modular KDSI-SR cable entry system from Conta-Clip provides reliable sealing, maximum flexibility and time savings feed-through for cables with and without plugs.

The system is designed for installation from the outside of a control cabinet, enclosure or machine. Part of the popular KDS Click cable management range, the KDSI-SR system, too, allows for comfortable, flexible reconfiguration of existing installations at any point in time. The components can be easily removed, exchanged and reassembled. The clever system concept for the separable insertion of individual sealing elements facilitates customized cable management — since cables with plugs do not have to be disassembled and reconnected for retrofits or servicing, the manufacturer's warranty is retained.

The KDSI-SR system is based on the proven modular design and simple assembly concept of the KDS program. It features an inverse tapered design of the screw-on frame’s opening and includes an additional two-part cover with TPE seals in three levels. This ensures an absolutely tight fit of the sealing elements, which are available for one, two or four cables or as blanking plugs. The sealing elements with serrated edges and a tapered design provide IP66 ingress protection and reliable static strain relief in compliance to DIN EN 62444. They also allow for high packing density in comparison to cable glands.

The halogen- and silicone-free KDSI-SR cable entry system is suitable for a wide range of requirements and ambient temperatures from -40° C to 120° C. KDSI-SR frames are available for 4, 6, 8 or 10 sealing elements in various configurations to match the number and diameters of cables.
