New 80mm Large Diameter one piece flexible conduit fitting - now with more bite

Flexible conduit system manufacturer, Flexicon, has extended its proven range of FPA fast-fit flexible conduit fittings to include the new LDFPA80 for larger cable installations.

The LDFPA80 is one-piece, fast-fit nylon (PA66) fitting compatible with non-metallic flexible conduit systems.  Flexicon FPA fittings were already available for conduit systems of up to 67 mm nominal size and now the introduction of the LDFPA80 increases the range further to a market-leading 80 mm.

The conduit is installed by simply pushing it in to place and twisting to secure, helping to save time on the job when connecting and terminating. With faster and simpler fitting, the LDFPA80 is ideal for larger diameter conduits or where several larger cables need to be routed through the same conduit.

By their nature, such systems are subjected to heavier weight internally with potentially more force and stress between the conduit and the fitting.

Recognising that any connection, or termination interface is a potential weak spot for an installation, the conduit-to-fitting interface can be critical to protect the integrity of the system.

Flexicon has therefore designed the LDFPA80 as a one-piece fitting, featuring eight teeth which secure all round the conduit to provide high pull-off strength. This helps to protect installation integrity at this critical point in the system between the conduit and fitting interface.

As with all fittings in the FPA range, the FPA80 has been vibration and shock tested to EN61373 Cat 2 and is tamper resistant offering added security. However, removal can be achieved using a screwdriver if necessary.

It is also UV resistant, making it suitable for external applications and is halogen, sulphur and phosphorous free.

The fitting offers an ingress protection rating of IP66 and can withstand temperature ranges of -50oC to 135 oC.
 
Flexicon specialises in cable protection for demanding applications where continuity of supply, performance and safety is critical. The company provides 60 different conduit systems for multiple applications, with solutions that meet numerous industry standards.
