and outdoor applications
demand more resilient cable
• 304 or 316 Stainless
Steel ensures not only
resistance, but corrosion
resistance to combat
moisture in cold environments.
• O-Rings can also help
to fight corrosion inside
the cable gland to protect the cable and terminations, as well as
seal out dust and other
Cable glands that come into contact with chemicals or
abrasives must use the right materials to protect not only
the cable gland, but the cable itself, as well as the termination. Use chemical-resistant cable glands in manufacturing, paper production and water treatment.
• 304 or 316 Stainless Steel provides the ultimate protection from chemicals and oils.
• Valox is a non-metallic, non-hyroscopic material that
• O-Rings and special seals can be added to further protect the gland, cable and termination.
Cable glands in mechanical applications should address
issues surrounding bending, flexing and vibration, as well
as all the other elements combined. Hot, cold, chemicals
and water may also be present. Manufacturing, assembly
line, robotics, material handling and automation have a
special set of requirements for strain relief. Address these
requirements with materials specific to the environment
and the application:
• Standard aluminum can be used in dry, indoor environments where moisture is not an issue.
• Stainless Steel should be used to combat oxidation
• Add lock-nuts for extra tightening and security of the
connection to an enclosure or mechanical application.
