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 (from 3.2 mm to 20.5 mm in diameter) in limited space with IP66/IP68**. The KEL-DPU-HD is particularly characterised by its solid robust frame and the increased strain relief of the routed cables.

The KEL-DPU-HD 24 matches exactly the cut-out dimensions of 24-pin standard industrial connectors. The cable entry plate is mounted either by screwing it to the inside of the enclosure or by snapping it into the cut-out.

** IP68 only when screw mounted
