IP65 insert compression latch/lock from FDB Panel Fittings

Part of our new 6-500 range, the 6-504 shares the novel roller cam action with the addition of an integral insert lock for double bar or similar tool operation. The 6-504 clamps easily over a 20mm range providing IP65 protection with a suitable gasket. This unusual roller cam ensures especially easy operation on large industrial control cabinets and has an anti-vibration characteristic which is useful in many applications, so preventing nuisance opening of equipment doors.

The 6-504 is especially designed to operate with a flat rod system and may be expanded to a multi-point arrangement with the addition of 6-510 latching elements for larger doors with no protruding handle or knob, so presenting a particularly clean door surface for safety in narrow access areas.

Front insert cage nuts for 19

Traditional rear insert cage nuts for 19″ racks or other punched rail mounting systems have been a mainstay of panel mounting for many years – now we have also introduced the Dirak  front insert cage nuts for even simpler and quicker assembly – M5, M6 and M8 sizes are available.

Rear mounting is fine where access is easy but this is often not the case and front insertion can save a lot of time where many nuts are required per rack – we offer two styles of front insert and one type of rear insert cage nuts.
