Cable entry made easy to help save time
08 March 2016
Rittal offers a solution to cut assembly outlay and gain easy access with the open support sections of its CP 60/120/180 support arm system.
Cables in support arm systems need to be able to be installed quickly and easily for retrofitting or servicing. This requires easy accessibility without having to dismantle already installed support arm systems. Today, support arm systems for machine operation don’t just need to offer a smart design and high load-bearing capacity but also straightforward cable management. Cables need to be accessible quickly and easily in the event of damage or for retrofitting. The open support sections of the Rittal CP 60/120/180 support arm system meet these requirements with ease.
Clip-on and flexible plastic covers also enable easy access to the cables in the support arm section when the support arm is mounted. Cables can be easily laid or replaced by simply removing the covers. The section diameters of the support arms also offer room for pre-assembled cables with connectors (e.g. DVI).
To also stabilise open support sections with a long jib to prevent them from twisting, clamping elements can be installed in the open area of the support sections. This achieves loads comparable to those for closed support sections. The clip-on plastic cover conceals the clamping elements. This simple and effective option provides additional stability and safety.
The CP support arm system can be configured for the three load levels of 60, 120 and 180kg (based on a jib length of one metre). It has a standardised design, with its modular system offering the perfect solution for every requirement and delivering considerable time savings for assembly/adjustment.
