The cable gland is a suitable power source for connecting the cable and can also protect the cable, so it will not escape. Cable sealing devices are placed in different categories, depending on whether the glands are used in general processing industries or need protection from excessive temperature or explosion hazards. The cable armored or unarmored layer integrated into the gland and a different type of gland will be required for each variety. The gland itself can be made of metal, such as copper or aluminum, or plastic, and each material is useful in different environments.
When the electrical work is completed, it may have no cable sealing to ensure the wires of the electrical equipment, but this is a bad idea for the following reasons. The gland provides sealing power, thus ensuring that the cable does not slip off during operation. Safety is also provided, because the gland ensures that electrical energy can not be attached to cables near anyone, causing personal injury. The glands usually provide other safety features such as grounding wires or insulated cables.
There are two main categories for cable sealing: industrial and hazardous. Industrial cable gland is a general purpose gland to meet the general hazard requirements, so it is useful for use in high temperature environments or explosion hazards. If the environment is hazardous, use dangerous glands because these glands meet the necessary additional requirements. They are extra strengthening, making them resistant to temperatures and external forces that normal glands cannot withstand.
Two types of cables can be put into the cable gland and are classified as armored or unarmored, which will play a role in the glands will pick up. The armored cable will require a gland that can be clamped to the wire and has the ability to terminate the energy from the armored part. Non-armoured wire does not require termination, but the gland needs a high degree of protection and retention to keep the wire safe.
Most cable shielding wire gland units are made of brass, which is considered to be corrosion resistant and conductive as a general material. In the presence of aluminum and moisture, at the same time, brass can begin to corrode. Brass is often plated with other metals to make the gland stronger and better corrosion resistant. Plastic is often used as an alternative to metal glands.
