Multifunctional connector for cable ladders
One for all – the multifunctional connector
This connector is truly multifunctional. The new OBO component allows flexible implementation of shape or direction changes, without any additional components or complex mounting steps. Thanks to its flexible side rails, the multifunctional connector can simply be bent into the required shape.
The side rails of the connector can be adjusted to any angle and any installation situation. This means that both symmetrical and also asymmetrical reductions are possible: On one side of the side rail, a strap is simply bent. For a symmetrical reduction, the straps on both sides of the side rail are bent in parallel. In both cases, only one multifunctional connection is required ‒ previously, multiple angle connectors needed to be mounted.
Practical bend points
The practical bend points of the multifunctional connector simplify the creation of Tee branches and cross-overs. Previously, a Tee or a cross-over were used here. Now, both can be implemented with the multifunctional connector. Tee branches can be created in two ways: One way is to bend the internal bend point through 90°, to suspend the multifunctional connector directly in the section rail. Alternatively, both straps can be bent through 45° to create a transitional radius.
From 0 to 60 degrees
Bends can also be created with the multifunctional connector. Thus, the multifunctional connector now offers the opportunity of creating any bend between 0 and 60 degrees. The multifunctional connector can also be used as a connection to an articulated connector instead of an articulated bend element, thus saving on a component. The multifunctional connector is a real all-rounder, which can considerably simplify mounting on the construction site and save plenty of time.
