The FIPLOCK® ONE corrugated pipe connector from FIP, the only one of its kind in cable protection, fits all IP protection classes.
One fits all: The FIPLOCK® ONE corrugated pipe connector from the Ger- man manufacturer FRÄNKISCHE Industrial Pipes (FIP), the only one of its kind in cable protection, fits all IP protection classes. The extensive range of connectors includes cable protection products in different angles and with different thread types made of plastic or metal. These can be used, for example, in industrial plant and tool construction, energy plants and railroad technology. The FIPLOCK® pipes and all but one of the FIPLOCK® ONE connectors have UL1696 approval, which is mandatory for exports to North America.
The high-quality corrugated pipe connection simplifies connection technology: Whereas different corrugated pipe connections were previously required for the various IP protec- tion classes in industrial use, FIPLOCK ONE now combines all protection class require- ments in one product.
“Our range of corrugated pipe connections for each IP protection, which is unique on the market to date, simplifies product selection, saves storage costs and reduces the handling effort required by the end customer. One fits all – this guarantees high cost-effectiveness and minimizes sources of error as early as the application specification stage,” explains Andy Girola, Managing Director International at FRÄNKISCHE Cable Management AG.
The FIPLOCK ONE fittings from the FIPSYSTEMS cable protection program allows many connection variants in industrial, plant and tool construction, ener- gy plants, railroad technology and other areas of application.
Broad FIPLOCK ONE portfolio
The FIPLOCK ONE product line includes a wide range of straight fittings, fittings at 45° angles and at 90° bends, as well as fittings for strain relief and with inter- nal threads. All thread variants are available in plastic and metal versions, and with various connections. T- and Y-distributors as well as the T-adapter allow individually adapted and flexible pipe routing.
The ARPA pipe reducer enables transitions to smaller nominal diameters, and the AIPA pipe connector connects smooth metric or armored pipes with flexible corrugated pipes. All FIPLOCK ONE components, in conjunction with FIP standard corrugated pipes, meet the requirements of protection classes IP66 to IP69.
Simple push-in installation – lasting safety
FIPLOCK ONE connects FIPLOCK corrugated pipes with fine and coarse pro- files from NW 7 to NW 48 reliably and permanently tightly together. The ready- to-assemble fittings made of specially formulated polyamide 6 stand for maxi- mum safety in use: The corrugated pipe is pushed into the preassembled adapter with a slight twisting motion. When the tube is at the stop, a safe and reliable connection is made in all IP protection classes. If necessary, the as- sembled unit can be opened again using a standard slotted screwdriver, and the fitting can then be used again.
The pre-installed seal in the fitting body ensures the highest IP protection rating on a permanent basis, even in demanding environments, tight installation situa- tions and when the pipes are subjected to dynamic loads. FIPLOCK ONE is characterized by high weather resistance as well as impact and tear-out re- sistance. In addition, the connection range meets the highest fire protection standards.
Ready for global market access
FRÄNKISCHE Industrial Pipes’ standard corrugated pipes and corrugated pipe connection are well prepared for the international market.
“The FIPLOCK pipes and all but one of the FIPLOCK ONE connectors already have UL1696 approval, which is man- datory for exports to North America, for example. We are working on extending certification to the complete FIPLOCK range for global market access,” explains Andy Girola.
