HELUKABEL Introduces Threadless Cable Gland for Quick, Simple Assembly without Any Tools
ELGIN, Illinois – HELUKABEL, one of the world’s leading cable manufacturers has introduced its latest cable gland technology that quickly and simply relieves stress and strain on cables – the HELUTOP Easy. Using a unique, patented spring/snap system, the HELUTOP Easy allows for quick and easy installation in hard-to-reach areas and spaces with no access for locknuts.
Assembly using HELUKABEL’s newest cable gland is simple – push the cable gland in and turn clockwise – and can be done by hand. Fastening the gland in this manner achieves the same tight fit compared to traditional glands held in place with locknuts. No tools are required for installation; however disassembly requires the use of a special tool that will not cause damage to the cable gland.
Thanks to improved installation times and making conventional fastening techniques like threaded holes and locknuts unnecessary, the HELUTOP Easy offers substantial cost savings.
The HELUTOP Easy is currently available in plastic and comes in sizes Ø16 and Ø20 (corresponds to M16 and M20). Additional sizes including Ø25 and Ø32 are coming soon.
