Cable Glands

Cable glands are devices designed to attach or secure the end of the cable to the piece of equipment. They are combined sealing and termination devices which make sure the characteristics of the cable enclosure can be maintained adequately. They provide strain-relief and act as sealing devices for cables going through gland plates. As mechanical cable entry devices, they can be both metallic and non-metallic. They are made of a number of different materials such as plastic, brass, aluminium or stainless steel. There are a variety of cable glands and the decision about which to use would depend on the type of cable, the gland size, the entry type, the ingress protection and the material of the gland. Glands can be used for routing pre-terminated cables with connectors. There are also Split Cable glands. These are two gland halves with a split sealing grommet which is secured with a hexagonal locknut. In this way, pre-assembled cables can be routed without removing the plugs. Cable glands are used on all types of electrical power systems. They are also found in telecommunication and data cables as a way to transmit the signals or information. Glands can also be seen on instrumentation devices and automation systems.
