Practical Cable Entry for Housings

April 24, 2024

The new UT grommets from icotek are an innovative solution for the simple and efficient routing of cables with and without plugs into housings. The UT grommet is a U-shaped grommet with slots on one side which allows individual cables with a variable clamping range of 2 mm to be routed safely and tool-less. The diameter range is from 4 to 11 mm.

The UT grommet is ideal for installation on the bottom part of the housing. The grommet is simply mounted around the cable. The fitted grommet is routed into the recommended opening and the housing cover is put on. By screwing the cover on, the required pressure is exerted on the UT grommet, which enables sealing up to IP54. The grommet is routed into the lower part of the housing without a frame or tools. The wall thickness of the housing can be 1 - 4 mm.

The UT grommet is made of the icotek well-known elastomer and offers high UV resistance as well as freedom from silicone and halogen and a fire class of UL 94 V-0. It is suitable for a temperature range of -40 °C to 100 °C.
