FDA-Compliant Cable Entry Plates KEL-DPU-HD from icotek

Nov. 18, 2021

The new cable entry plates KEL-DPU-HD have been specially developed for the installation in food processing and packaging machines.

During the development and in accordance with the Hygienic Design guidelines, care was taken to ensure that the visible side of the cable entry plate is free of dirt collecting recesses. The outer contour has a radius of 6 mm, twice the minimum requirement of 3 mm. The surface is very smooth (Ra = 0,421 μm acc. ISO 4287). Additionally, the KEL-DPU-HD uses an FDA-compliant elastomer in accordance with food approval 1935/2004/EG and (EU) 10/2011. The easily identifiable blue colour ensures a clear visual recognition of compliance.

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 spaces with IP66/IP68. The cable entry plate is characterised 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 x 112 mm). The cable entry plate 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 – 2 mm).

The “hygienic design” signifies an easy-to-clean solution from components to machines and including the entire production systems. The KEL-DPU-HD adds to our already wide range of products rated for use in the food & beverage sector. For metric cut-outs, icotek has been offering a FDA-compliant cable entry with the KEL-DPZ-HD since last November.

Samples and certificates can be obtained from the manufacturer.
