American Series Cable Gland/Connector Features
Our cable gland range incorporates innovative features that along with safety, enable faster installation, facilitate inspectability of the cable gland in it's operable condition, prevent corrosion of the cable armour/braid and in some cases help to go beyond the requirement of merely having the appropriate certification. More detailed information on these features can be found in our article Why Should You Specify Cable Glands, which further emphasises why our cable glands are the lowest lifetime cost solution.
Unique Rear Sealing System
This arrangement offers IP66, IP67, IP68 (30 metres for 7 days), NEMA 4X and Deluge (DTS01) Ingress Protection. The seal is manufactured from a silicone material, has LSFZH properties, is ozone and oil resistant and is suitable for use at both high and low temperatures. The Rear Sealing System covers the entire range of cable diameters without the need for special seals and the cable acceptance range is stamped on the backnut for ease of inspection. The backnut can be hand tightened, with only one further spanner turn required to ensure IP66, IP67, IP68 and NEMA 4X.
Armour Grounding Device
This device provides 360° armour grounding which is fully inspectable. The grounding device is unique in that it remains in contact with the metal cable jacket when the cable gland/connector is disassembled for inspection.
Inspectable Deluge Seal
Our inspectable deluge seal offers IP66 and IP67 sealing and is certified as ‘deluge proof’ by ITS in accordance with DTS01. Indeed, our deluge seal is so good that it exceeds the expectations of the offshore industry by not only preventing ingress into the equipment, but also into the cable gland, which prevents corrosion of the cable armour.
