Cable entries of the VarioPlate series are the ideal solution when it comes to managing multiple cables in a confined space in a safe and organised way.

The VarioPlate Cable Entry System is suitable for the cut-out dimensions commonly used for connectors in enclosures. The modular solution is extremely versatile. For example, in panel building, on large electrical enclosures, in wind turbines or on excavators. VarioPlate meets protection classes UL 94 VO, IP65 and IP66. They are:

  • Halogen free and …
  • … RoHS compliant.

 

VarioPlate products are a premium solution in the field of cable entry. Compared with many similar products, they provide additional benefits:

 

  1. Modularity: large and small insert grommets can be used in one and the same frame.
  2. Tolerance compensation: compensating contour lips in the insert grommets ensure a perfect fit even if the cable has tolerances.
  3. Strain relief: the insert grommets protect the cables from mechanical stress.
  4. Molded gasket: on the back of the frame – this eliminates the need for a separate seal.
