KEL-DPU-HD hygienic multi-membrane cable entry plates

The new cable entry plates KEL-DPU-HD have been specially developed for installation in food processing and packaging machines. During the development according to the Hygienic Design guidelines, care was taken to ensure that the visible side of the cable entry plate are free of dirt-collecting recesses. The surface was kept very smooth (Ra = 0,421 μm acc. to ISO 4287). The outer contour has a radius of 6 mm instead of the required 3 mm. In addition, the KEL-DPU-HD uses an FDA-compliant elastomer in accordance with food approval 1935/2004/EG and (EU) 10/2011. The signal colour blue ensures a clear visual colour recognition.  KEL-DPU-HD entry plates are designed to route and seal cables without connectors…

EMC cable entry systems

Solutions for conducted and field-bound disturbances In case of conducted as well as field bound EMI disturbances, our split cable entry system EMC-KEL and our split cable gland EMC-KVT-DS offer an effective way to divert and block those disturbances and provides an alternative to conventional EMC cable glands - especially when routing cables with connectors. The industrial process technology demands increasing security against disturbances for electrical MCR facilities (measure, control, regulate). Special emphasis is being placed on the derivation of electromagnetic interference. A distinction is made between conductive and field-bound disturbances. A large contact area of the cable shield for the derivation of the interference to a conductive enclosure wall combined with the shielding of the enclosure interior, generally…
