Eaton expands its Flextray cable solution for Summer 2016
By Renée Francoeur
August 15, 2016 – Eaton says it has expanded and enhanced its Flextray accessories that help minimize labour and time on cable management installations, and, along with the enhanced solutions, the company says it has reduced the splicing hardware required to achieve Underwriters Laboratories (UL) classified electrical grounding capability by up to 50%.
The Flextray system is field-adaptable and features a wire basket tray that can be cut and bent. The new and enhanced wire basket accessories include a corner radius support, bottom and side drop-outs and blind-ends.
Available in both 6-in. and 12-in. radius configurations, the corner radius support creates a “smooth” bend radius, the company says, for cables at any horizontal bend, tee or cross location.
The bottom drop-out and blind-end products now have built-in tab features that position and lock the product into position without connecting hardware. Also, the new side drop-out (available in 6-in., 8-in. and 12-in. lengths) helps maintain a cable’s proper bend radius, Eaton explains, such as when cables are required to exit up and over the side rail of the Flextray system.
