2N IP Force and Safety - Cable Installation
Numerous installers are having difficulty in ensuring a good seal on cable entry due to sometimes difficult locations and tight cable entry points. Firstly if at all possible use the Cable entry glands and ensure that you use the associated blanking plugs. The rear cable entry tends to be the most difficult for many particularly when they want to add more than one cable ie. the LAN RJ45 lead in plus the cable for the control wires for relay output and request to exit input (REX) when additional board is used. Here is a tip that could help you prevent possible ingress of water or insects. Note: This is not a miracle cure all and it is purely there to assist you in making good decisions about sealing the unit against the elements.
When all glands are used properly in accordance with 2N instructions at wiki.2n.cz the IP Force and IP Safety are rated IP69K. The method shown here has not been tested to a standard and therefore we do not accept any responsibility for using in an installation. However, we would like to think that under certain circumstances it would be of assistance to any installer faced with a difficult wiring issue.
- From the large cable entry gland remove the black rubber plug. This plug has two cable entry holes.
- Cut length wise between hole and outer of plug so RJ45 cable can slip in via the side cut.
- Ensure that the rubber plug is placed so that the rubber extended outer is facing away from the IP Force when it is pushed in..
- Push additional cable through gland hole.
- Now push the whole rubber plug in to the back of the 2N IP Force.
- Wire in the cables ensuring that there is sufficient length to reach without tension
- Add silicon sealant in to the rear of the rubber gland now inserted in to the 2N IP Force.
