The latest KDR-BES-U brush strip cable entry product range from icotek has been developed specifically for applications with Rittal TS8 enclosures and is available in the UK from M Buttkereit

These versatile products however, are suitable for applications with virtually any current cabinet or enclosure on the market, including panels, server racks and walls or sheet metal cladding associated with both static or mobile equipment.

The brush strip products are supplied with innovative clamp strips attached, providing easy ‘slide-on’ attachment to metal sheets or enclosure base plates of 1.5 – 2mm thickness. The clamp strips are available in optional 90°mountings which can also be easily removed if an existing original enclosure gland plate mounting is already available for the brush components.

These KDR-BES-U products ensure fast, simple and tool-free mounting while the brush components can be remounted at any time typically for utilisation with alternative location options. Standard brush lengths are available to match closure aperture lengths of 600, 800 and 1000mm, with optional or alternative brush lengths also available on request. Brush division bars can also be utilised to achieve enclosure lengths in excess of 1000mm up to 1500mm. The clamp strip mountings are aluminium and the brush strip assembly is suitable for operating conditions from -20°C to +90°C. Brushes are manufactured from black Polyamide and can accommodate the repeat pass-through and removal of cabling, including those pre-terminated with 10/16/20-pin industrial connectors (up to
36 x 112m in size).

These versatile split brush plate items also provide some thermal protection by separation of cold/warm air conditions as well as minimising the effects of dust/drafts.
