A superior alternative to any cable entry plate

Using Roxtec cable and pipe entries with sealing blocks or sealing plugs – or sealing modules as we and most users call them – instead of cable entry plates is a good idea when working with anything from telecommunication cable entry sealing to sealing of service entrance cables bringing power to buildings and homes. One reason is the robustness of Roxtec seals, another is the flexibility for different needs and applications, and a third is the possibility to ensure safety, efficiency, and operational reliability.

More flexible than any cable entry compound

Multidiameter™, the Roxtec solution for adaptability to cables and pipes of different sizes, is a concept that has revolutionized the process of cable routing and pipe installation. It simplifies design, speeds up installation work and reduces the need for materials. It is the answer to your questions on how to seal a cable entry hole or how to seal a pipe entry hole and still be able to open them up do make changes or add cables or pipes. This would not be possible if you were to use cable entry sealing compounds and would mean a need for making new holes. The flexibility of Roxtec entry seals makes it easy to seal multiple cables and pipes in few openings. The entry seals allow the routing of pre-terminated cables and provide built-in spare capacity. You stay competitive and can deal with new needs and regulations, as you can add cables and pipes and extend the service life of projects – without adding material costs.

Roxtec EMC entry seals

To achieve EMC, electromagnetic compatibility, you need to minimize the effects of EMI, electromagnetic interference, and reduce the risk of internally generated EMI causing interference with electronic equipment nearby. Roxtec EMC entry seals are a good choice as they can prevent multiple risks simultaneously. The entry seals can help secure protection against disturbances from technical systems as well as protection from hazards such as fire, smoke, water, gas, vibration, and the risk of explosion. Design engineers must consider the risk of EMI exposure and include EMC into the electrical design for cabinets and equipment. Roxtec entry seals support best practice EMI protection principles.

Entry seals providing electromagnetic shielding

Roxtec has also developed entry solutions for cables entering or exiting electromagnetically sealed electrical enclosures. The entry seals are tested to a minimum of 18GHz to prove the shielding effectiveness. Transfer impedance from cable shield to frame is also measured up to 30MHz.
