Effective machinery protection is crucial for continued flawless production. With the high cost of pieces of equipment, one cannot neglect the importance of defense against dust, water, dirt, and other foreign debris. With that being said, cable glands provide an affordable solution to providing the security that is essential for machinery. These parts have the ability to protect internal electronics from dust and water while adding an aesthetic finish for ideal cable and machine protection.
Cable glands are available in different styles, sizes and colors to create the most helpful part for any need. Along with the wide array of sizes, these parts are offered in three different thread styles to fit machinery of all kinds; NPT, PG, Metric. Besides the actual size and thread style, different part styles are also offered for a variety of tasks. Aside from the standard cable glands, these parts are also offered in a 90° NPT style. PG cable glandThis allows for protection where standard glands are not serviceable. All of these parts are offered in a standard black color, however with some being offered in silver gray these cable glands provide an added aesthetic finish while having the ability to being used outdoors as well as indoors.
The UL Approved Nylon 66 material presents anyone with a strong, durable and reliable product. Specifically, these parts are UL94-2 Rated which indicates their flammability rating. In this case, these components are self extinguishing after a certain period of time. This means if for any reason a fire occurs near these products they will self extinguish before any further damage to the piece of machinery arises. This is especially important in manufacturing facilities where the chances of this happening are very plausible. These products also have great temperature ranges. Most can withstand -40°F to 221°F. As stated before, this allows these products to be used outdoor or indoor.
These products also have IP 68 rated protection. This indicates that the parts are dust and water-tight (with the 6 indicating dust tight and the 8 representing water tight up to 1 m). As well as being IP 68 rated, the parts are designed with AVC–variable clamping ranges to fit a wide range of diameters. This ensures that there is a part out there for many of the different applications that one may encounter.
