Jul 06, 2022
Explosion-proof cable gland is a mechanical device for cable entry. The material can be divided into metal and non-metal. It is used in electrical, instrumentation and automatic systems with cables and wires in various industries.
Explosion proof cable glands are available for a wide variety of power, control, instrumentation, data and telecommunication cables. As a sealing and terminating device, it ensures that the properties of the enclosure into which the cable is passed are adequately maintained and continued.
The main functions of explosion-proof cable joints are as follows:
Explosion-proof cable glands provide waterproof, dust-proof and explosion-proof protection by sealing on the outer sheath of the cable, blocking dust and water vapor outside the electrical or instrumentation box.
Explosion-proof cable glands provide grounding continuity for armored cables when metal is used.
Explosion-proof cable glands provide support for the cables and prevent them from being pulled out.
Explosion-proof cable glands provide additional sealing protection where the cable enters the junction box when a higher degree of protection is required.
Explosion-proof cable glands can ensure the protection level of the cable entry by matching the corresponding accessories.
Explosion-proof cable glands can reach the protection level of the box they are installed in.
