What you can do if you hit an electrical cable when drilling in a wall

Damage to electrical wiring from drilling into walls is a surprisingly frequent phenomenon – especially when buildings are being renovated.  Not only do the lights go out, but you usually blow a fuse as well. With a bit of luck, you might only have to repair the cable sheath. But if you damaged or severed a wire, just using a terminal strip, insulation tape and some silicone sealant are not recommended – you need some professional kit!

Efficient electrical panel design: systematic cable management with HelaDuct wire retainers

It was the wind park maintenance engineer who brought the truth to light. Loose cables dangled in her face when she opened the switch cabinet of the turbine she was scheduled to inspect. The cables should have been fixed in place with elastic bands. But they had perished – something that wouldn’t have happened with the right retainers. Learn how to simplify and professionalise cable management in electrical panels and switch cabinets using accessories from the HelaDuct product range. […] Continue reading

Flexible, custom-fit cable routing: The new Ratchet P-Clamp cable clip

For decades, cable clamps have been trusty servants to installers and maintenance engineers. But RCA, P and aluminium clamps have also always presented an inherent problem that makes working with them fiddly: cable routing and clamp fastening occur simultaneously. This is compounded by inflexible cable clamp diameters and cable insulation rubbing against the metal edges. The following article illustrates how HellermannTyton’s innovative Ratchet P-Clamp solves both of these issues and more besides.

2-component gels for perfect electrical insulation and optimum protection of cable connections against moisture

The use of flexible gel products is a tried-and-tested means of insulating electronic components or electrical connections in the outdoors. However, gels are not only used to prevent moisture ingress. They also have excellent insulation properties and good media stability. The use of gels also increases mechanical stability as well as vibration and shock resistance.

Safer lighting installation in offices and industrial buildings

The trend towards lighting with compact fluorescent lamps and LED downlights is constantly growing in offices large buildings. At the same time, planners are turning their attention to the overall energy efficiency of the entire building. Hence, installers increasingly encounter installation challenges from insulation and vapour barriers in areas where the lights are planned. Irrespective of the specific type of illumination selected, care must be taken that all lights are properly installed. Read here how downlight covers are an ideal solution for safe lighting installations. […] Continue reading

Simple, stable and safe electrical installations with gel cable joints

Whether unplanned or part of scheduled maintenance, electricians need to connect  low-voltage power supply cables on a regular basis. Cast resin technology or heat shrinkable sleeves are frequently used to safely protect cable connections. However, the reliability of the end result largely depends on the way the materials are handled during their tricky installation. Modern gel cable joints are a time-saving and reliable alternative.

FlexTack: this is how to attach cables to curved and angled surfaces.

A typical problem in the automotive industry: the integrated cable guides in the bumper are already laid down. There is only room left on the rounded and angled surfaces for additional cables for sensors. Until now, conventional rigid mounts for cable ties could not be affixed here at all, or only by using excessive layers of adhesive as a foundation. The flexible self-adhesive FlexTack mounts solve this dilemma: it sticks like a limpet, even on rounded and moderately angled surfaces. Find out in this article how to simplify your cable management on problematic surfaces and save costs with FlexTack. […] Continue reading

How RFID cable ties simplify industrial processes – examples and suggestions for your business

It’s almost time to go home when the phone rings at an industrial light manufacturer: a customer’s shop floor lighting has failed. Fortunately, the manufacturer knows exactly what spare parts are needed because the lights were equipped with a radio frequency ID cable tie that allows them to be precisely identified. Urgent spare parts requests are just one scenario where day-to-day work can be simplified using HellermannTyton high-tech RFID cable ties. Discover how many industrial processes can be optimised by using them. […] Continue reading
