The Essentra Cable and Wire Management
line provides the essential items to manage and protect your wiring designs
. When wires exist within an enclosure, the entrance and exit points pose real potentials for wire damage. External forces pulling on the cable can jeopardize the electrical connection within the unit. A Cable Gland
is used to attach and grip a cable to the enclosure which provides protection to the electrical connection
within the enclosure. By mechanically attaching the cable to the enclosure, the enclosure absorbs any shock and vibration exerted on the wire from outside the enclosure.
A plastic cable gland
attaches to the enclosure and can be accomplished with the help of corresponding lock nuts
and sealing washers
depending on the application. The gland crimps
down on to the cable providing lateral hold, while the sealing washer and lock nut secures the gland to the enclosure hole. Sometimes a design calls for multiple holes, but some holes are left open depending on variation of the final product. Gland covers
seal up those open holes when the enclosure integrity is required. [more][less]
Ingress ProgressionOur line of cable glands and accessories provides a particulate and liquid-tight protection measured by the Ingress Progression rating. Our cable glands provide an IP68, 5 bar protection and our gland covers provide an IP67 rating, measured as follows:
The IP number is composed of two numbers, the first referring to the protection against solid objects and the second against liquids. The higher the number, the better the protection.
0- No protection (Sometimes X)
1- Protected against solid objects up to 50mm³
2- Protected against solid objects up to 12mm³
3- Protected against solid objects up to 2.5mm³
4- Protected against solid objects up to 1mm³
5- Protected against dust, limited ingress (no harmful deposit)
6- Totally protected against dust
0- No protection (Sometimes X)
1- Protection against vertically falling drops of water (e.g. condensation)
2- Protection against direct sprays of water up to 15 degrees from vertical
3- Protection against direct sprays of water up to 60 degrees from vertical
4- Protection against water sprayed from all directions - limited ingress permitted
5- Protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions - limited ingress permitted
6- Protected against low pressure jets of water, limited ingress permitted (e.g. ship deck)
7- Protected against the effect of immersion between 15cm and 1m
8- Protected against long periods of immersion under pressure
