A cable gland also known as a cable connector or fitting is a device designed to attach and secure the end of an electrical cable to the equipment. A cable gland provides strain-relief and connects by a means suitable for the type and description of cable for which it is designed—including provision for making electrical connection to the armour or braid and lead or aluminum sheath of the cable, if any.
Cable glands can be constructed from metallic or non-metallic materials (or a combination of both) which may also be resistant to corrosion as determined by selection to a standard, or by corrosion resistance tests.
Cable glands can be classified based on compression which divides them as Single Compression Cable Gland & Double Compression Cable Gland. Double compression glands provide extra support to the heavy armoured cables entering or exiting the panel while single compression glands are used for light armoured cables
When used in explosive atmospheres in particular, it is crucial that cable glands are approved for the selected type of cable and that they maintain the level of protection of the equipment to which they are attached. Cable Glands can be either EExd or EExe means either fitted to threaded entries into enclosure or fitted through a clearance hole & in this case closure is achieved by use of a locknut. Our company manufactures cable glands from both metallic and non-metallic material based on client’s requirement. We are specialists in manufacturing cable glands from metals which includes mainly Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Mild Steel & Brass.
