Discontinuation of sleeves – DIN version

27 February 2019

Based on intensive observations of the market and technical tests carried out by Klauke, we are delighted to be able to announce that the use of sleeves is no longer required to compensate for compacted class 2 connectors, on cable lugs and connectors compliant with DIN standards 46235 and 46267 Part 1.


The decision to discontinue these products is based on numerous electrical and mechanical tests and on how our tools have continuously improved. Particularly in the area of tools, we were able to permanently raise the quality through improved designs.


This change will benefit you as a customer of course. In future, you will be able to save on purchasing, storage and the additional work step. Of course, all connections in which the sleeves were used remain technically sound and compliant with IEC 61238-1.
