The Push-Lock connection of the pluggable IPD installation connectors enables the easy, time-saving installation of flexible and rigid conductors. You can open and close the terminal points easily using the lever.

IPD panel feed-throughs with Push-in connection

IPD panel feed-throughs with Push-in connection allow tool-free assembly with the direct connection of pretreated and rigid conductors. The push button can be used to release already-installed conductors or to connect conductors without ferrules.

IPD installation system with fast-locking

The fast-locking system guarantees easy and reliable mounting, even in particularly difficult installation situations, and the easy replacement of devices if service is required. The plugs latch clearly into place and provide reliable protection against incorrect connection.

IPD panel feed-throughs

With the IPD panel feed-throughs, you feed the cable on the field side through the sleeve and connect it directly to the device. Then simply snap the sleeve into place, establish strain relief via the nut, and the cable is connected.

IPD panel feed-throughs with Push-in connection on the device side

With the Push-in connection on the device side, wiring robots can automatically connect the components in the device. The IPD panel feed-throughs are therefore ideal for lighting applications.

QPD product range overview

1. Panel feed-throughs
The panel feed-throughs are cable glands that can be connected from the outside. As a result, devices no longer need to be opened in order for cables to be connected. This ensures that the manufacturer’s specific protection class is maintained.
2. Cable connectors
The cable connector can be used to lengthen or repair cables. When combined with connectors, cable connectors can be used as flexible coupling connections.
3. Connectors
The connector with leading PE contact is ideal for quick device replacement in service situations or for installations with pre-assembled cables. It is coded to prevent incorrect connections.
4. T-distributors
Installing a branch line for loads is easy with the compact T-distributor.
5. H-distributors
The H-distributor is a compact, robust junction box that can be connected quickly. The four connections are connected in parallel to each other, which also allows them to be used as a star distributor.
