Cable Glands

 

Applications Overview

We supply a comprehensive range of industrial and hazardous area cable glands (also known as cable connectors) for the smooth interconnection of cables and equipment. Many of our gland kits come with locknuts as standard, although they are available to buy separately where required. Gland accessories also include O-rings, washers, earth tags, shrouds and blanking plugs.
 
For standard gland applications, we offer the Hummel premium HSK-K V0-rated plastic dome top gland, the Ecotec dome top PA (V2) gland, and the A2 brass gland stuffing gland. For fire-rated applications, the Hummel Exios Exd range includes the A2F and Atex glands manufactured to the latest IECEx 60079 / ATEX ratings, and the Active range with new approvals for the Exe plastic glands that meet the new stringent specifications within IECEx.

For braided cables we recommend the CX gland, and for cables with screened flexible wire braids the CXT gland. With industrial armoured cable, particularly our SWA cable, we recommend the BW gland for internal applications and the CW for external installations.

Where a high degree of chemical and mechanical stability is required, we supply the premium Hummel HSK-M nickel-plated brass dome top gland, rated to IP68/69k 10-bar, and the Ecotec MS IP68, again in nickel-plate and dome topped. K-EXE-Active is for instrinsically safe circuits in hazardous or explosive environments. For electromagnetic protection, our electromagnetic compatability (EMC / EMV) glands, including the Hummel HSK-M-EMC Type D, are designed so that the contact spring connects directly to the copper screen or metallic braid offering protection against the effects of electrical interference and aids fast installation times.

All our cable glands are rated IP68 for a watertight, dust-proof, connection. Additional high pressure and high temperature protection is available on the Hummel HSK range of glands with FPM or silicone seals. Glands are available in a wide range of diameter sizes from M6 to M110, with either Metric, PG or NPT threads.
 
Eland Cables’ technical team is available to provide technical advice and product accessory recommendations for all of our cables. New gland designs in all materials (plastic, brass, nickel-plated brass and stainless steel) can be created to order where sufficient volumes exist.
