If cable glands don’t hold up against the environment,
whether it’s harsh temperatures, bending and flexing,
chemical or moisture contact, the results can be disastrous. From loss of production to higher maintenance
costs and potentially huge safety issues, major problems
can result from these small components.
When installing cable glands in harsh environments,
standard configurations may not do the job well. The
NEMA or IP rating is a good place to start, but doesn’t
guarantee that it will provide peak performance in the
Adding ruggedized components to cable glands for
more reliable performance can help in the long-run.
Performance, reliability and safety in harsh environments can be improved when the
correct cable glands are used in
demanding applications. When it
comes to cable glands, one type
does not fit all.
As you may have already learned
by dealing with an urgent, poten-
tially dangerous maintenance call,
When it’s time to install or replace cable glands, ensur-
ing that the right choices are made is paramount to pro-
ductivity and safety. From tougher materials and special
seals to extended strain relief, there are many ways to
ruggedize cable glands for better long-term performance
in harsh applications.
• Strain relief in bending, flexing or vibrating applications
• Abrasion resistance in environments with harsh chemicals
• Enhanced environmental protection indoors and outdoors
