Product Details

Lapp IP68 Metric Skintop K-M EExe II ATEX Blue Cable Glands

From Lapp, this tough polyamide cable gland is ATEX approved for complete protection. The Skintop K-M EExe II is constructed to be used for electrical equipment in areas with risk of explosion, and require class ’e’ security.

With a simple screw-on design, this Skintop cable gland is quick fitting to reduce assembly time, and can be used for cable management in panels, junction boxes and equipment housing. The cable gland provides a high degree of strain relief, which can protect the cable connection from wear and tear, and also has a variable clamping range.

As well as boasting a high level of environmental resistance and mechanical resistance, this cable gland also offers permanent vibration protection, which makes it suitable for use with or alongside heavy machinery.

When equipment protection in demanding environments is required, the Skintop K-M EExe II is ideal.
