Fast fit dividers simplify flexible conduit installations
16 August 2011
Flexicon has introduced a range of fast fit reducing dividers to make cable installation simpler and quicker. Commonly referred to as trouser legs, these are available in a number of different sizes: for conduit of 16mm reducing to 13mm, for 21mm to 16 mm, 28mm to 21mm and 34mmm to 28mm. The dividers are part of the FPA and FPAX system of fittings into which flexible conduit can be fitted and secured in less than three seconds.
The conduit is simply pushed into the fitting and then twisted to secure; the fitting has a high pull off strength of up to 70kg, but can be released if necessary using a screwdriver.
The dividers have rounded internal corners for easy pull through of cables and mounting lugs for secure fixing. They are ideal for applications where cables need to be rerouted.
Other benefits of the FPA and FPAX ranges include; tamper resistance, suitability for both fine and coarse pitch flexible conduit and for temperatures between -50oC to 135oC. In addition it is a low fire hazard product that is halogen, sulphur and phosphorous free. The product has been vibration and shock tested to EN61373 Cat 2 and offers superior connectivity due to its all round teeth design.
The FPA range has an IP rating of IP66 and the FPAX range has the highest IP rating available in the UK of up to IP69k combined with superior tensile strength performance.
