Profile X 8 40x16 light

A stylish addition to Line X: The slim Profile X 8 40x16 light is used to fasten rebates, holders for Proximity Switches and other attachments to XMS machine frames and constructions built from Profiles X 8. The perfect marriage of form and function – no space or material wasted.

Conduit Profile K

Simply clip Conduit Profile K, which is made of high-strength plastic, into any Line 8 groove and the cable conduit is ready for use – no machining, no screws. When fastening to any other surfaces, the conduit can be screwed directly into place. The shape of Conduit Profiles K matches the contours of Profiles 8, making them the ideal complement to Line 8 profiles and the integrated cable conduits of Profiles 8.

Accessories for conduits K

Installing a cable conduit couldn’t be easier: First, slide or push Clip 8 Conduit Profile K into Conduit Profile K. Second, simply press the clip into a Line 8 groove – and that’s it! It’s quick, clean, there’s no machining involved and the installation can be reconfigured at a later date. Cable conduits can be fitted parallel to a groove or at a right angle across it.

The swivel-in catches are also extremely useful, stopping cables and hoses falling out of Conduit Profiles K – even in upright and overhead installations. Additional cables and hoses can simply be pushed into the conduits.

Mounting Set XMS, Multi-Socket Power/Distribution Strips

It holds! This Mounting Set is used to fit item Multi-Socket Power Strips and Distribution Strips neatly and securely inside the integrated cable conduit of Profile X 8 120x120 K56 – XMS. Cover Profile 56 K can then be used to cover over the conduit.

This means users can securely fasten power strips and connections inside the XMS frames.
