In order to ensure the required minimum degree of protection, the cable glands must be tightened securely.
Over-tightening can impair the degree of protection and damage the unit.
When tightening the cap nut of a cable gland, a suitable tool shall be used to prevent the gland from twisting.

Fastening Front Frame

Do NOT use more than 2.5 Nm torque when fastening the 12 screws into the front frame.
