Connection technology expert CONTA-CLIP supplies versatile components for simple and time-saving cable management. The tool-less KDS and KES cable entry systems enable easy routing and flexible rearrangement of cables and conduits in enclosures and control cabinets, with reliable strain relief and IP66 ingress protection. To install any number of differently sized and shaped cables, enclosures no longer need to be fitted with variously sized openings, reducing the machining effort to a minimum. This enables manufacturers to supply fully sealed, preconfigured machine enclosures and control cabinets without knowing the exact final wiring requirements. One-piece KES plates with push-through membranes enable high-density routing of up to 32 unassembled cables, wires, or conduits. The multi-part KDS system features a frame that can always stay in place once it is installed – removable sealing elements in different sizes can be inserted to change the assembly as needed. As a result, stock-keeping costs are also significantly reduced, since there is no need for various same-size enclosures with a range of different prepared openings. The KDSClick system consists of only three basic components: frames, inlays, and sealing elements. The sealing elements are available in over 100 variants for diameters ranging from 2 mm to 35 mm, with 1, 2, and 4 slots, for industrial flat ribbon cables, and as blind plugs. The frames are available for 4, 6, 8, or 10 sealing elements. Featuring an injected foam gasket, they preserve the IP66 protection rating even on painted or rough surfaces. To accommodate the selected sealing elements, various inlays (available in I, T, +, and ++ shapes) can be simply inserted in the frame. KDS-FP flange plates hold two or three KDSClick modules and provide space for a total of up to 30 sealing element positions, making them ideal for control cabinets that require a lot of wiring. CONTA-CLIP furthermore offers the KDS-R series for quick, tool-less assembly in metric M20 to M63 round enclosure openings. This system consists of a frame with an integrated gasket, a thread and locking adapter, a locknut, and sealing elements with optional inlays. The KDS program also includes KDS-FB frames for industrial flat ribbon cables. These are available in four frame widths and different partitions for flat as well as round cables.

Following an urgent request for assistance, Menzel Elektromotoren has shipped one of its biggest motors yet: the squirrel-cage motor has an 800 mm frame size and a combined weight of over 33 tons including an air to air heat exchanger, external fans, and a custom terminal box. It replaces a failed compressor drive used for gas compression in an oil field. By shipping the motor within three weeks from receiving the order, Menzel ensured the continued operation of the plant, saving the customer high downtime costs. The Berlin-based company offers a unique service, standing out among other motor suppliers for its exceptionally large and diverse inventory. Menzel did not need to build the oversized motor from scratch but had it in stock, which reduced the delivery time by more than six months. The customer-focused team ensured smooth installation and reliable function of the drive, making various complex mechanical and electrical adjustments and providing expert service. Work for the high-priority project was also carried out on weekends. A member of staff took the measurements on site in Algeria. The rated power of the stocked motor was adjusted from 14 MW to 7.9 MW. In adapting this existing unit for this application, Menzel welded a frame for guiding the airflow in a closed cooling circuit. The shaft was shortened, milled to the required diameter, and fitted with a new borehole. The rotor was re-balanced. The target application in the oil industry furthermore required an explosion-proof design: the adapted motor can be flushed with nitrogen before start-up. It got the Ex marking II3G Ex nA IIC T3 Gc. Menzel also integrated surge limit accessories and tested the motor with the customer present, who thus witnessed first-hand the motor’s impeccable performance. Menzel supervised installation and commissioning of the motor. Menzel presents its capabilities in customizing compressor motors on its case study web page at https://www.menzel-motors.com/compressor-drive/.
