CENTRAL LEVER: just a hand! ILME has introduced a new series of hoods, which enrich the range of central lever enclosures, offering a connection solution suitable for specific industrial requirements. Central lever’s shape, thanks to its design, reduces the effort required for the uncoupling – reopening is possible even with one hand – and grants the possibility of a serial side-by-side installation. The new hoods, made of aluminium die cast with stainless steel pegs and edge sealing gasket, allow a cable-to-cable connector joint in combination with the already existing hoods with lever. The range includes all the standard sizes, versions with or without adapter and several Pg or metric thread variants. In addition, a stainless steel locking device with an optional padlock for size “104.27”, available for both housings and hoods, can be placed on the side of the central lever to secure the coupling and prevent any accidental opening. The whole series is an outstanding solution for the robotics sector and for applications with limited installation space.
