The splittable cable entry
What is the best method of routeing a preassembled cable through standard hole cut-outs for 24-pole connectors and sealing them securely? PFLITSCH has developed a solution for this: the splittable UNI Flange. The UNI Flange is the only splittable flange solution that is based on the sealing principle of a cable gland. With this flange solution, the properties of the UNI Dicht system are combined with the advantages offered by a splittable frame plate and splittable pressure screw. The UNI Flange is available made of plastic and zinc die casting. The metal version is for applications in industrial enviroments (UNI Flange HD - Heavy Duty).
Three double nipples are integrated into the PA plastic or zinc die casting splittable frame plate - into which over 100 different sealing inserts from the UNI Dicht system can be fitted. The grooves in the double nipple and on the inserts prevent the sealing insert and the cable from turning as the pressure screw is tightened. The sealing inserts, manufactured of TPE-V, can be used to securely route cables of between 2.0 mm and 20.5 mm cross-section into or out of an enclosure. The soft pinching action of the gland does not constrict the cable; otherwise the cable sheathing would suffer serious damage. This sealing principle offers the additional benefit of high class A strain relief in accordance with EN 50262. The sealing inserts and the circumferential seal on the frame plate prevent the ingress of dust and water sprays and therefore achieve protection class IP 66 or better. The Flange variants offer all of these benefits at service temperatures of between -20 °C and +80 °C. The plastic version is also available with threaded inserts. Thereby full contact protection to class 2 (DIN EN 61140, VDE 0140-1) can be achieved. The frame plates made of PA and the splittable PA pressure screws are available in grey and black.
