Altech's Atex strain reliefs for cable entries provide increased safety in potentially explosive areas
Altech Atex polyamide strain reliefs for cable entries provide increased safety in explosion-endangered areas by eliminating any potential for arcs, sparks or hot surfaces. These IP68-rated strain reliefs with neoprene seals promote optimized sealing and protection against contaminants, and reduce stress on components and terminal points in machine and device applications across industries.
Altech Atex polyamide strain reliefs are available with NPT threads (3/8 inch to one inch) or metric threads (M12 to M63). The trapezoidal threads contribute high torque for a tight and permanent fit of the dome nut. Clamping ranges from 2.5-6.5 millimeters to 35-48 millimeters (depending on type) ensure maximum strain relief in service.
Mounting is accomplished by using a flat seal and metal locknut. Upon installation, the strain reliefs offer gas- and water-tight solutions with the capability to perform over a broad temperature range from -20ºC to 60ºC and -4ºF to 140ºF.
