The new Ratchet P-Clamp cable clamp separates cable routing and cable fastening
In answer to the dilemma, HellermannTyton product designers came up with the Ratchet P-Clamp, a cable clamp with separate cable fastening and cable routing functionality surrounded by a plastic ring, which can be flexibly adjusted to the precise diameter required. This offers a host of advantages when fitting clamps for wiring and hoses on construction equipment, tractors, cranes, lorries, trailers, trains or machinery.
You are always looking to reduce costs and streamline work flows. But to adopt a new component, it also needs to meet your needs for versatility, durability and ease of use – without compromising performance. The Ratchet P Clamp’s patent-pending design makes it extremely versatile for managing wire harnesses and cables. Its rugged construction and specialized materials are perfect for heavy duty applications, indoors and out. You close the one-piece adjustable clamp manually, exactly to the desired diameter. Audible clicks let you know that it’s secured. Releasing the bundle is simple and nondestructive – all you need is a small, flat head screwdriver. Offered in four sizes and in several mounting configurations, the reusable design minimizes part inventory, speeds fastening and simplifies maintenance. Old fashioned P clamps are difficult to position, can twist and pinch wires during installation, and complicate maintenance. They corrode or wear out over time. Plus, you often need to invest in an extensive inventory to have all the sizes and variations you need. Engineered with both the application and the user in mind, Ratchet P Clamp offers: • Versatility – Secure hard lines, soft cable bundles ranging from ¼” to 2” wide • Ease of Use – Position, torque down, close by hand – that’s it! • Alignment – Center cables as the clamp closes • Durability – PA66 body and high grade steel mounting plate never wears out or corrodes To view or download the HellermanTyton Ratchet-P Clamp brochure please visit http://www.tchelectronics.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/LITPD310-Ratchet-P-Clamp-003.pdf
CONEC has introduced patch cords in its product range that are manufactured with an Industrial Ethernet cord with a stranded wire cross-section of AWG22. Low losses are realized it allows for long transmission distances.
In industrial environments, the ProfiNet cord with PUR insulation can be used. With all RJ45 connectors, the cable shield is connected through the internal strain relied to the...
CONEC is extending their range of DT and Superseal valve connectors with a double cable outlet version.
These would mostly be used by those who require Y-distributors for distribution of signals and power. This allows the possibilities for making systems more compact and reduces installation space, for example in a DaisyChain application with multiple cascaded connectors.
