Enclosure gasket profiles from FDB Panel Fittings

Gasket, Sealing profiles,  window sealing and associated accessories for virtually all industrial applications are available at the FDB Online store – in fact we are sometimes surprised just how many profiles we have available and what a great variety of sections we can supply for all types of sealing, edge protection, wiping and exclusion of both solid objects and liquids. Naturally there are self adhesive foam sections and clip on “P” types and hollow insert gasket to fit door channels. Then when you want to put a window into a door or machine we can provide a number of profiles incorporating an insert locking strip for added security.

In addition where electromagnetic compatibility is necessary, we can also supply a good range of special profiles with EMC/RFI shielding in combination with water and dust sealing – please contact our in house sales desk for details.

Earth line protection devices from FDB Electrical

We have been specialists in industrial electrical protection equipment for a long time now and are able to offer our proven technology in component form to panel builders wishing to configure their own systems. This FDB range includes many panel mount devices and system elements.

For example the FDB EMGUARD earth line monitor range includes 110V, 240V and 440V units – the 110V unit in particular being of interest since this is a rating not commonly offered elsewhere. The EMGUARD series comply with BS4444 and offer 1-20 ohms impedance (adjustable), fully encapsulated and housed in a PA6 enclosure ready for chassis mounting.

Other components include the EFU62 VELEM combined earth fault and earth line monitor and the VEF series variable earth leakage protection relay. The EFU series includes a combined earth fault and earth line monitor and DC earth fault monitor, this compliments the EFR range of universal earth leakage protection relays, along with matching external CTs where required.

This FDB program of earth line protection devices enables panel builders and installers to complete full electrical protection systems to their own specifications – contact us to discuss configuration or order at our Online shop.
