IP66/IP68 Cord Grip for Cables with & without Connectors
Split Cord Grip KVT-ER Sets New Standards in Connectorized Cable Routing
By introducing the all-new split cord grip KVT-ER, icotek is setting new standards in connectorized cable entry. The KVT-ER cord grip is a liquid and dust proof (IP66/IP68), rugged, easy-to-install and comparatively very cost-effective solution for routing, sealing and strain relief of cables with or without preassembled connectors.

Cable Routing, Sealing & Strain Relief
KVT-ER is a split cord grip for routing and sealing cables with connectors or complete cable harnesses. In addition, electric, pneumatic or hydraulic lines without terminals or connectors as well as corrugated hoses can be easily routed (e.g. into control panels, enclosures or machinery), sealed and strain relieved.
High Variability, Perfect for Retrofits & Maintenance
Up to 4 lines with diameters from 1 to 16 mm / 0.039″ to 0.630″ (using single-hole grommets KT 1 – 15) or one line from 16 to 35 mm / 0.630″ to 1.378″ (using grommets KT 16 – 34) can be routed and sealed with this cord grip. The maximum dimensions of the routed preassembled connectors depend on the metric cut-out sizes, not on the split cable grommets.
Due to the consistently split system, subsequent retrofitting, repairs and maintenance are easily possible. The cord grip is simply assembled around the routed lines.
The KVT-ER sizes are based on metric standard cut-outs M32, M50 and M63. Hexagonal locknuts are included in the shipment. For assembly, it is recommended to tighten the cover lid screws with max. 2 N-m / 1.475 ft-lb. This creates the required contact pressure.
High Ingress Protection Ratings IP65, IP66, IP67 & IP68
Due to the high contact pressure, the injected elastomer gasket and the use of KT single-hole cable grommets, the cord grip KVT-ER reaches protection ratings IP65 / IP66 / IP67 / IP68 (certified according to EN 60529). Note: When using multi-hole or special grommets, protection is downgraded to IP54.
In addition to the high tightness, the cord grip KVT-ER enables strain relief on the routed cables according to EN 62444.
NEMA TYPE 12 / 4X and “c UR us” certifications are currently in progress.
