Unassembled Cables

With the LAPP multi-cable entry systems for unassembled cables, up to 30 cables can be inserted in a housing dust-tight and protected against water. This space-saving installation ensures optimum strain relief on the cables. You can choose between different designs and a different number of bushing points.

What is a multi-cable entry system for non-assembled cables?

Multi-cable entry systems are used to feed several cables through the housing of a control cabinet or machine. Often, the cables are only fitted with the necessary connectors on site, i.e. in the control cabinet or machine.

Cables that are inserted into a housing without connectors are not assembled.

What are the differences between the LAPP multi-cable entry systems for non-assembled cables?

Our tried-and-tested LAPP multi-cable entry systems for up to 30 unassembled cables offer special features tailored to various applications. They differ fundamentally in the distribution, size and number of individual bushings.

The MULTI product family is characterised by its unique elastic gel technology with innovative membrane technology.

The benefits of MULTI products at a glance:

  • Large clamping ranges, variable by 4 mm each for different cable diameters.
  • Direct cable entry without pre-piercing the bushings.
  • The best possible sealing off of the housing and the cables enables high protection classes.
  • Unoccupied glands remain securely closed and sealed.

  • SKINTOP® MULTI: The multi-cable entry systems with extremely elastic and tear-resistant gel seal enables insertion of up to 30 cables with diameters from 2 mm to 20 mm. It is available in a wide range of space-saving versions. Special bus glands also allow flat AS-I bus cables to be accommodated.
  • SKINTOP® MULTI VENT: This cable gland combines two major advantages: the elastic gel technology of the SKINTOP® MULTI and a pressure compensation element that does not allow moisture to penetrate, but does allow air to be exchanged. MULTI VENT thus prevents pressure build-up and condensation of water in your device or machine.
  • SKINTOP® CUBE MULTI: If you prefer modular systems, you will love this multi-cable entry system! The system consists of the SKINTOP® CUBE FRAME and a special SKINTOP® CUBE MULTI gel insert.
  • SKINTOP® MULTI-M: The gel seal of the SKINTOP® MULTI-M has excellent sealing properties. It has a graduated funnel-shaped design and is always crack-free, even for cables with large diameters. The round multi-cable entry system with stable metric connection thread can be easily screwed into housing boreholes. Simply tighten using the supplied counter nut to create a safe cable entry.
