Cable Glands

There is an ever growing range of cable glands within the cable industry, with cables glands in the home and office industry as well as the others across the industry becoming more and more developed across the globe. These glands form the basic wire management products which are very functional and useful across various different industries and home needs. Although there may be other types or management products available on the market, such as grommets, panel plugs, bushing, tapes and tubing, connector caps, plugs, clamps and clips as well as many others. Cable glands are usually a very popular choice due to the suitability to its purpose.

Throughout the industry, there are often new lines of cable glands produced and brought into the market, developed to continue to cater to the changing needs of consumers within relevant industries. There are many different designs of cable glands in the market, but the industrial recommendation suggests that wired glands that have the smallest maximum range of clamping for the required or desired application. It is important to make sure that the glands ensure best functionality as the join the availability of rubber and plastic grommets in protecting wires and grommets against damage from sharp edges.

Cable glands are available in specific models which are suited to specific applications. Right angle wires come in black UL nylon material which is highly recommended with this type of gland. NPT glands can withstand a wide range of temperature from -40 degree F to as high as 221 degrees F – with an intermittent temperature as high as 300 degrees F. Special glands such as this have an IP 68 rated protection of 5 bars that means it can perform very well against dust and water environments. They can be very resistant and durable against strain. However, it is not uncommon for right angle glands such as these to have extra components that come separate.

These special wire glands are designed with variable clamping ranges that will prove to be advantageous when fitting into a wider diameter range. Metric glands are sometime popular within the market, which are usually black UL nylon materials that can also withstand the same wide range temperature as the right angle wire glands.
