Cable Glands

Connecting element 

Cable glands are the connecting element between cable and many different hardware components such as: junction box, instrumentation box, electrical engine, frequency inverter, switches, fixtures, sensors and temperature gauges. These hardware components are only able to function with the use of power (U/I), data and other power feeds or data streams.  

A cable gland should provide a correct IP seal and must be a strong mechanical connection between the cable and hardware components. In addition the cable gland cannot have a negative influence on the cable. The cable gland should not cause ‘cold flow’ or damage the cable where the cable gland is compressing the cable for a good IP seal and strain relief.  

Range of different functions 

Cables can be built/constructed in different ways; they can have a range of different functions or meet very specific demands which allows them to be used in very specific industries. The Food and Beverage (hygienic) industry, Rail, Oil & Gas ATEX industry, Energy and Renewable Energy are some examples of industries that each has very specific demands.  

Often the cable gland is designed to continue or extend a function of the cable. This could be mechanical strength and composition of the cable, but also creating Electro-magnetic compatibility, shielding against EMI and maintaining the function of transferring power or data of the cable in case of a fire. 

All of the above is the reason why there is a large diversity in the types and kinds of cable glands. Each with their own construction to meet specific demands, appliances and applications.
