We supply a comprehensive range of industrial and hazardous area cable glands (also known as cable fittings) for the smooth interconnection of cables and equipment. This covers the full spectrum of cable, with applications from general industrial types through to safety, deluge, flameproof and explosion proof cable glands.
Our cable glands are designed to provide optimal systems integrity when used alongside our cables and form an integral part of our cable solutions. Depending on the application, we offer brass cable glands as well as stainless steel, aluminium, nylon, nickel, plastic and other materials. Our cable glands are generally supplied with other cable gland accessories including locknuts, O-rings, sealing washers, earthing washers, earth tags, shrouds, clamping modules, adaptors, reducers, and blanking plugs. These are available in both metric and PG threads, as well as for armoured and non-armoured cable applications.
Our cable glands adhere to the strictest national and international specifications including NEC, CEC, ATEX and IECEx.
Cable Glands Portfolio
Some of our most popular cable glands include:
|Plastic Gland||HSK-K||The HSK-K’s IP68 rating makes it suitable for both wet and dry installations, as they provide a watertight connection. The IP69K rating makes them suitable for use in high pressure and high temperature applications. They are available with neoprene inserts to reduce the internal diameter of the gland for flexibility with smaller sized cables.|
|HSK-K-Ex-Active||The HSK-K-EX-Active are designed for use in intrinsically safe circuits in hazardous and explosive environments. They are constructed with trapezoidal threads to provide vibration protection and high strength connection. Rated IP68 and IP69K, they provide sealed connections capable of operating under close-range high pressures, total immersion in water, and high temperatures. This range meets the stringent specifications set out within IECEx.|
|Brass Gland||Exios A2F||Exios A2F are designed for use with unarmoured and braided cables used in hazardous areas. They have an adaptable clamping range in metric sizes and they are manufactured to the latest IECEx 60079 / ATEX ratings|
|Exios Atex||Exios Atex have an interlocking armour cone and are designed for use with armoured or metallic screened cables. They are suitable for applications in hazardous areas due to their pressure-resistant brass casing which has been tested against increased spark pressure tests. When fixed, the Exios Atex creates a watertight and dust-proof connection. They carry the IP68 rating and are manufactured to the latest IECEx 60079 / ATEX ratings|
|A2||A2 brass cable glands are suitable for use with unarmoured cables. Their outer seal grips the sheath of the cable to achieve a weatherproof seal, hence their IP68 rating.|
|BW||AWA and SWA cable requires armoured cable glands. BW brass cable glands are suitable for use with steel wire armoured cables on indoor applications. These SWA cable glands have no loose parts in their construction which allow for easy installation.|
|CX||CX brass cable glands are suitable for use with braided cables providing electrical continuity for the cables’ wire braid.|
|CXT||CXT brass cable glands are suitable for use with all types of screened flexible wire braid and wire braid armoured cables. These glands provide mechanical cable retention and electrical continuity|
|CW||CW brass cable glands are suitable for use with steel wire armoured cables on outdoor applications. Their outer seal grips the cable sheath to achieve weatherproof seal. A separate armour lock ring ensures armour clamping.|
|Nickel plated glands||HSK-M||HSK-M nickel-plated brass cable glands are designed for use in applications where mechanical and chemical stability is required. Their IP68 rating provides for a total watertight and dust-tight seal with protection against the effects of prolonged immersion under pressure. Their IP69K rating offers additional protection from close-range high pressure water and high temperatures. This range is available with a BUNA-N seal as standard or other materials on request.|
|HSK-M-EMV-D||HSK-M-EMV-D nickel-plated brass cable glands are designed for use with copper screened cables. Their contact spring connects directly to the metallic braid, providing optimal electromagnetic protection (EMC). They are IP68 rated for a sealed connection and IP69K rated for temperatures up to 100°C and high pressure applications, for use indoor and outdoor.|
|Ecotec MS||A standard grade nickel-plated brass gland which is IP68 rated. This waterproof cable gland's seal prevents ingress of dust and water, suitable for immersion. The Ecotec MS Gland is suitable for use in environments demanding high levels of chemical and mechanical stability including measurement and control applications.|
|Ecotec EMC||Nickel plated EMC glands are ideal for watertight applications. Their high quality finish makes them suitable for plant machinery and control equipment. These are known as SY cable glands and CY cable glands, and should only be used for applications with these control cables.|
|Nylon glands||Ecotec PA||A standard grade polyamide metric gland (plastic cable gland) manufactured with IP68 watertight and dust-tight rating. They are supplied with a neoprene seal to reduce the gland diameter where applied to smaller size cables.|
|Nylon IP68||The Nylon IP68 glands are suitable for use on panels, switches, control equipment and machine tools. The IP68 rating allows them to be used in a variety of wet and dry installations. They are available in PG and metric versions.|
