Push-in two-level terminal blocks: Compact, space-saving for 4-mm² wires

24 May 2022

CONTA-CLIP expands its range of PRK push-in terminal blocks, adding the space-saving two-tier PRKD 4 and PRKD 4/3A for 4-mm² wires. The unique and compact design of the PRKD 4/3A features three inputs on each level for applications with even higher packing densities. Like all PRK terminals, the two-level versions feature cross connection channels on each level for flexible potential distribution and 2.3-mm test taps for easy measurement of all potentials. Via push-in technology, users can very easily and quickly connect rigid wires and wires with end ferrules without tools. For a quick release of inserted wires, the terminals feature a pusher that requires only slight pressure and no special tools, yet provides high contact force through the spring. The housing for the orange pushers and the wire inlets have been clearly separated from each other so as to give users the correct conductor clamping insert points 100% of the time. CONTA-CLIP is continuously expanding the PRK range, which currently includes PRKD two-level terminal blocks for 2.5-mm² and 4-mm² wire cross sections in simple feed-through and PE terminals for two, three and four wires, in four nominal cross section ranges between 1.5 mm² and 6 mm².

Tool-less round cable entries for cables with plugs

16 September 2021

Conta-Clip completes its KDS-R modular cable entry program for round metric breakouts from M20 to M63, adding small-diameter versions for cables and conduits with cross-sections from 2 mm to 35 mm. Cables with and without plugs can thus be quickly and safely fed into control cabinets or housings. The tool-less cable management system consists of a handful of modular components: a cable entry frame with an integrated gasket, a two-piece thread and locking adapter plus two-piece locknut to fix it in place, and sealing elements with a range of inlays. The cables are simply fed through the enclosure opening and cable entry frame. Slit, tapered, and finned sealing elements are then fitted around individual cables or conduits on the inside. The sealing elements are then pushed back to fit tight in the cable entry frame. I-, T-, and +-shaped inlays are available for M40 and larger openings, allowing for insertion of a variety of cable sealing elements as required. The cable entry frame as a whole is fixed in place by attaching a two-part thread and locking adapter to the frame on the outside of the enclosure and attaching a separable locknut on the inside. The special shape of the sealing elements ensures high IP66 ingress protection and strain relief working towards accordance with the DIN EN 62444 standard. The wide range of sealing elements for one or more cables of different shapes and diameters offers high flexibility in creating wiring solutions. The tool-less system minimizes the effort necessary to change existing connections. Unused entry positions in the frame can be sealed with blanking plugs, which can be easily removed at any time to allow additional cables to be inserted.

Round cable entries for diameter combinations up to 22.5 mm

22 July 2021

CONTA-CLIP further expands its KES-E cable entry program for screwless mounting, adding metric 50 mm variants: the new KES-E-R cable entries allow for quick and secure feeding of cables into control cabinets or machine housings. The plates are simply manually pressed into the machined openings. The inner, elastic sealing lip of the profile seal bulges on the inside of the panel, ensuring secure and vibration-proof hold. In order to feed cables or hoses into a housing, users simply pierce the surface membrane at one of the marked center points and push the conduit through. The new KES-E-R cable entries are available in seven A and seven B versions for cables and pneumatic hoses with diameters from 1 mm to 22.5 mm. The A versions are suitable for wall thicknesses from 1.5 mm to 2.5 mm, the B versions for 2.5 mm to 4 mm. Different versions hold up to 35 cables or conduits, thus allowing for extraordinarily high packing densities. The cable entries provide IP54 protection against dust and splash water. They are made of TPE and are free of halogen and silicone. The material is suitable for ambient temperatures from -40 °C to 90 °C.

Three-level terminals with push-in connection

30 June 2021

CONTA-CLIP expands its terminal block range featuring push-in connection for 2.5 mm˛ cross sections, adding the new PIKD three-level initiator terminals and multi-wire terminals. Push-in connection allows for easy, time-saving wire insertion without tools. The PIKD line is designed for 500 V rated voltage and 20 A rated current. The terminals can withstand a rated surge voltage of 6 kV. They comply with overvoltage category III and pollution degree 3. The compact terminals are 5.1 mm wide, 56.2 mm high and, depending on the model, 86 mm or 102 mm long. Their slim, tall housing geometry and wire insertion from the top enable optimized use of the available space in control cabinets. Various models cover different signal and power distribution scenarios: PE terminals, terminals with vertically connected levels for potential distribution and combined PE and feed-through terminals. Special shorter versions with a reduced number of contacts are supplied with the same height to enable uniform connection levels in cramped installation situations.

Hygienic door handle for tool-less mounting

29 July 2020

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.
