The cable gland’s main purpose is to seal the electrical equipment & ensure the wiring is well-protected. It prevents us from getting electric shocks & from the explosion. Cable glands are also known as cable connectors, cable fittings, cord grips, and cable strain reliefs. The cable glands can be armored or unarmored. The material used fo cable glandcan be brass, plastic, aluminum, or steel. It protects the inner material from exploding and from the weather as the wiring can rust.
To create cable glands, a central enclosure or body through which cabling can pass is combined with several attachments. Typically, they consist of a lock (or check) nut, washers, a seal, an attachment claw or cone, and a sealing (or compression) nut.
These are used in industries like the manufacturing industry, cement industry, petrol, electrical industry or chemical industry, etc.
Components of a single compression cable glands- Flat washer, Lock nut, Rubber washer, neoprene rubber seal.
Components of double compression cable glands- Skid washer, Armor clamping ring/cone, washer, lock nut, nipple entry thread, main gland body, neoprene outer/inner rubber
Gives weather protection and corrosion protection to your cable gland. It is not compulsory to have a PVC shroud as it can have the opposite effect on the cable gland.
Earth tags are a safety feature that prevents the cable gland from electrifying and, as a result, safeguards anyone who might come into touch with a defective gland.
Similar to the ones in ordinary plugs, earth tags offer a means of attaching cable glands to the earth. The earth tag safely directs the power toward the ground in the event of a fault.
