|Accessories are used to
bundle, clip, clamp, label, guide, and protect wires and cables
Cable Bus Systems - Cable bus systems are used to
transfer large amounts of power (very high current and voltage) between a power source
and a load center. They are engineered systems that include cable trays, wireways, and
conductors for connecting a power source to a machine. Unlike trays and wireways,
cable bus systems are complete packages that include wiring or cabling.
Cable Carriers - Cable carriers are constructed of
flexible links and are used to organize and manage cables and hoses for moving
Cable Clamps - Cable clamps are used to bundle, clip,
clamp, label, guide, and protect wires and cables.
Cable Glands - Cable glands are bulkhead modules that
allow barrier penetration while providing sealing protection. They are commonly known
as sealing glands or strain reliefs and have the ability to seal around one or
multiple wires, cables or probes. They are available in plastic and metal
Cable Ramps and Hose Ramps - Cable ramps and hose
ramps cover wires, cables, hose or pipe in high traffic areas to protect them from
Cable Ties - Cable ties hold groups of cables together
for support and ease of maintenance.
Cable Transits - Cable transits are bulkhead or barrier
modules that allow electrical cables to pass through, while providing various levels
of sealing, strain relief, and damage protection, depending on the application
Cable Trays - Cable trays are rigid-type trays used as
raceways for cables and wires.
Conduit Fittings - Conduit fittings are connectors and
fittings used to connect one piece of conduit to another, or to connect conduit to an
electrical box. They are available in various metals, as well as with different levels
of moisture protection.
DIN Rail - DIN rails and DIN rail clips and brackets are
used on computer boards. DIN is an acronym for Deutsche Institute fuer Normung, a
German standardization body and member of ISO.
Electrical Conduit - Electrical conduit is lengths of
solid tubing used to house, protect, and cover electrical wiring and cables in power
Electrical Connector Bases and Covers - Electrical
connector bases and covers are designed to provide mechanical protection for
electrical connectors. They are available in many shapes and sizes to accommodate
different types of electrical connections.
Electrical Feedthroughs - Electrical feedthroughs
transmit electrical current through the walls of a pressurized or vacuum system
through a hermetic seal.
Patch Panels - Patch panels are groups of ports used to
connect lines between communications and electronic devices. Connections are made
manually with small patch cords, and are easier to wire than automatic switches.
Wireless patch panels are also available.
Protective Sleeving - Protective sleeves are special,
corrugated conduits used to organize cables and wires.
Pulling and Support Grips -
Pulling Grips are mechanical devices used for the
holding of a wire or cable so that it can be pulled
without damage to the wire or cable jacket.
Sensor Accessories -
Sensor accessories including mounts, sensor cables and
sensor adapters are components specifically engineered
for holding/positioning sensors or connecting sensors
to sensor systems or instruments.
Shrink Tubing - Heat
shrink tubing conforms to the size and shape of
wires, connections, open coils, and other
electrically conductive elements to insulate and
protect them from adverse environmental conditions.
Splice Kits - Splice kits are used to establish a
connection between two cables.
Strain Reliefs - Strain reliefs protect the lifeline of
electrical products by absorbing the forces of push and pull that may be exerted on
the flexible wires, cables, or tubing.
Wallplates - Wallplates are covers for electrical
receptacles and switches normally mounted on a wall.
Wire and Cable Clips - Wire and cable clips are used to
bundle, clip, guide, and protect wires and cables.
Wireways - Wireways are designed to protect electrical
wires from dust, dirt, water and oil.
Wiring Ducts - Wiring ducts are rigid trays
typically used as raceways for cables and wires within electrical enclosures.
