Conta-Clip introduces the new, inverse and modular KDSI-SR cable entry system for reliable sealing, maximum flexibility and time saving feed-through of cables with and without plugs. The system is designed for installation from the outside of a control cabinet, enclosure or machine where little space is available. 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 to fit different numbers of cables and tubes. 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, using the same components. It merely 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 and thereby IP66 ingress protection and reliable static strain relief compliant with DIN EN 62444. The conically shaped sealing elements with serrated edges are available for one, two or four cables or as blind plugs. The modular cable entry system enables increased packing density compared to cable glands. The halogen- and silicone-free 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 different conductor diameters.

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 merely 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.

CONTA-CLIP has launched HYDH, an ergonomically optimized Hygienic Door Handle that is quick and easy to install. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, hospitals and other public institutions and commercial buildings have a greater need for hands-free door handles as a way to lower the spread of infection. Various manufacturers have launched products that are operated with the forearm instead. However, most existing solutions require screw attachment, can slip or tilt, or come in two different versions for left and right hinged doors. Therefore, CONTA-CLIP has designed a universal hands-free handle that fits left and right hinged doors with round, oval, or rectangular latches and that allows for secure attachment without screws or tools. Featuring an ergonomic jacket design, HYDH allows for comfortable use with the forearm or elbow. The one-size-fits-all clasp is simply slipped onto the door handle where it latches tightly. Flexible spacers facing the door keep it firmly in place even if it is pushed or pulled with strong forces. If fixed with the tamper-protection clamps included in delivery, HYDH can afterwards only be removed with a screwdriver. Made of durable, chemical-resistant plastic, the hygienic door handle withstands frequent disinfection with aggressive cleaning agents. HYDH is available in nine colors. In addition, CONTA-CLIP offers to provide individual colors, lettering, or logos for hotels, restaurants, and other customers interested in maintaining a uniform corporate design. More information as well as a short demo video on installation of the door handle are available at www.hydh.de.

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.

CONTA-CLIP provides all necessary tools for customizing its UL- and VDE-certified VK series cabling ducts. The VK-S cutter allows for shortening up to 125 mm wide standard or halogen-free cabling ducts to the required length. Cuts are clean, without burrs, and with the exact required angle. This tool can be installed at a workbench. VK-AKZ notching pliers are made for breaking out sections of the side walls cleanly and completely all the way down to the base of the cabling duct. Expanding rivets can be processed safely and quickly using the SN-SW setting tool. Featuring a long shaft, it facilitates setting rivets in deep channels or in other difficult-to-access positions. CONTA-CLIP supplies VK cabling ducts with a length of two meters. These ducts made of rigid PVC are notable for their excellent form stability. They feature tight-fitting covers that nevertheless allow for very easy detachment and reattachment. The material is lead-free, flame-retardant, and self-extinguishing according to UL 94 V-0. CONTA-CLIP also provides cabling ducts in accordance with VDE 0472 part 815 for use in public buildings. These are manufactured from halogen-free plastic that does not release toxic gases in case of a fire. Moreover, this material meets the F2 and I3 requirements of the NF F 16-101 railway standards. CONTA-CLIP also supplies miscellaneous accessories such as flexible cabling ducts, coiled tubing, wire holders, support lugs, and expanding rivets.

CONTA-CLIP now offers a combination of a hydraulic hand pump and sheet-metal punching tool. Users can thereby produce break-outs in control cabinets for KDSClick, KDS-FB, KDS-KV, and KES cable entries within a few minutes. The hydraulic hand pump contains no hose and features a user-friendly, compact design. It weighs only 2 kg. The hydraulic cylinder can be rotated and swiveled by 360° along three axes, allowing for flexible use even in hard-to-reach places. The punching tool includes round hole punchers for all diameters from M20 to M63 for KDS-KV separable cable glands and square and rectangular hole punchers for all KDSClick, KDS-FB, and KES cable entries as well as for 110 by 131 mm KDS-FP flange plates. In order to create a break-out in a sheet-metal enclosure, the hydraulically operated draw bolt is inserted in a bore hole. Next, stamp and matrix are fixed with counter nuts both on the inside and outside. When operated, the draw bolt pulls stamp and matrix towards each other, producing the opening in the required size. The built-in punch-hole marking tip can be used to clearly punch-mark the drill points for screw-on attachment of the cable entry. Stamps are available for 3 mm sheet steel and 2 mm stainless steel.
