Title: Fluid-tight cable bushing for ribbon cable

Abstract: A fluid-tight cable bushing for a ribbon cable has two profile supports. The ribbon cable extends through an opening in a penetration element, such as a housing for a switch or meter. The bushing has two profile supports each with a first flange having snap-on elements and a second flange. The first flanges extend symmetrical along and enclose the ribbon cable. To form a first fixation point, the snap-on elements are v-shaped and arranged to snap against a first end of the opening. To form a second fixation point, the second flanges extend laterally beyond a second end of the opening. A fluid-tight potting mass covers one of the fixation points. Preferably, the potting mass is disposed in a recess formed in the penetration element about the opening.
