Harnessflex Complete Straight Adaptor Body
Harnessflex straight adaptor bodies are unique in that they feature both an anti-vibration locking ring on the cap nut, to ensure the fitting remains tightened during assembly and in service, and an integral neoprene 0 ring or flat washer imbedded in the mounting face, to seal the fitting against the junction box or enclosure. Easy to put together by hand, the fitting achieves an IP67 sealing rating when all supplied components are used correctly assembled. (Fittings featuring the flat washer perform to IP68, 2 bar for 30 minutes). The illustration shows the correct assembly for a simple male threaded fitting. Of particular importance is the orientation of the sealing ring which must be assembled with the chamfer facing into the cap nut and the internal fins should be located into the corrugations of the conduit. The sealing ring should be positioned at least two corrugations from the end of the conduit. The cap nut retention ring must be securely located on the adaptor body to ensure correct engagement of the ratchet mechanism on the cap nut.
