Video: Cable entry plates for food processing and packagingEngineering360 News Desk | December 30, 2021
New cable entry plates have been specially developed by Icotek for installation in food processing and packaging machines.
During development of the KEL-DPU-HD cable entry plates and in accordance with hygienic design guidelines, care was taken to ensure that the visible side of the plate is free of dirt collecting recesses. The outer contour has a radius of 6 mm, twice the minimum requirement of 3 mm. The devices are manufactured with a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-compliant elastomer in accordance with food approval 1935/2004/EG and (EU) 10/2011.
The entry plates are designed to route and seal cables without connectors (from 3.2 mm to 20.5 mm in diameter) in limited spaces with IP66/IP68. The cable entry plate is characterized by its solid robust frame and increased strain relief of the routed cables. The KEL-DPU-HD 24 matches exactly the cut-out dimensions of 24-pin standard industrial connectors (36 mm x 112 mm) and is mounted either by screwing it to the inside of the enclosure or by snapping it into the cut-out (wall thickness from 1.5 mm to 2 mm).
