What is a cable gland ?

DateTime :    Vist : 369

The cable gland is an accessory that connects the cable to the power supply and can fix the cable so that it will not escape. Cable gland devices are divided into different categories, depending on whether the gland is used for general industrial work or requires protection against high temperature or explosion hazards. Suitable cable glands can be armored or unarmored. Each type of packing requires a different type of stuffing box. The stuffing box itself can be made of metal, such as brass, aluminum, or plastic; each material is useful in different environments.

The armored cable can be installed in the cable gland to connect to the power source. When doing electrical work, you can fix the wires to the electrical equipment without using the cable gland, but this is a bad idea for the following reasons: the gland provides sealing power, Make sure that the cable does not slip off during operation. It also provides safety because the sealing sleeve ensures that electrical energy does not seep out of the cable, causing injury to anyone nearby. Sealing sleeves usually provide other safety functions, such as grounding wires or insulated cables, which is why they are often used for cable connections.
