3.2. Tension Relieving

Why is tension relieving required with mobile devices and appliances?


- Tension relieve is possible inside and outside the connection space of mobile equipment.

- Tension relieve must act immediately on one cable and not on intermediate layers.

- Mostly, tension relieve consists of one pressure clip with two fastening points. (See Figure 21).

- If tension relieve cannot be given within the connection space, it must be done outside at the casing or construction part of the device or appliance. However, the protective system of the device or appliance must thereby not be reduced.

What is the importance of protection against buckling at device and/or appliance entries and exits?


Boltings which only serve the observance of the protective system or degree of protection of the device or appliance must not be used for tension relieving.
