ELECTRONICS: 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 additionally 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 to 1 inch) or metric threads (M12 to M63). The trapezoidal threads contribute high torque for a tight and permanent fit of the dome nut. Wide clamping ranges (from 2.5-6.5 mm to 35-48 mm, depending on type) ensure maximum strain relief in service.
Mounting is accomplished easily using a flat seal and metal locknut. Upon installation, the strain reliefs offer ideal gas- and water-tight solutions with the capability to perform over a broad temperature range (from -20 to 60C and -4 to 140F).
Custom products, including strain reliefs with extended threads, can be developed to satisfy particular application requirements.
