Simplify Your Cable Gland or Cord Grip Application with icotek

By using split cord grips or cable glands from icotek, pre-terminated cables or complete cable harnesses can be quickly routed into enclosures, cabinets, or machines and be sealed with UL type 12/IP 68 rated ingress protection. In addition, the cable strain is relieved due to the integrated cord grip function.

The split cord grips or cable glands enable quick and easy assembly which is great for retrofitting and maintenance. The prefabricated cable is placed into the slit grommet, which is set into one of the gland halves. Depending on the size of the cord grip or cable gland, one, two, or four separate grommets can be installed. The two gland halves can be easily snapped together without the need of tools. The assembled lines are securely sealed and held inside the cord grip.

KVT is a circular split cord grip for quick and easy installation and sealing of cables with connectors or complete cable harnesses.

Some of the advantages of the KVT system include:

  • Insertion of pre-terminated cables
  • Warranty on pre-terminated cables remains
  • Retrofits, repairs, and maintenance can be done quickly and easily
  • High cable density, wide variety of grommets
  • Suitable for metric cut-outs
  • Locknut is included
