Cable glands BXM type 
(code: BXM)

The cable glands of the BXM series have been designed for the use with a conduit with a threaded end, or to a fl exible conduit with the use of an intermediate fi ttings. It has a body which holds the container intended to contain the epoxy resin for sealing the cables.
Above the container is positioned an intermediate and body whose upper part has been specially threaded to be coupled with a conduit tube with a threaded end or to a fl exible conduit with the use of an intermediate fi ttings. A backnut that is going to be screwed onto the body of the cable gland serves to block in position the intermediate body and container.

Degree of protection

The cable glands degree of protection is IP66 or IP66/68, 30-meters depth for 7 days according to the IEC EN 60529 standard; the degree of protection IP 68 is obtained by using fl at sealing rings on cable glands with cylindrical threads. Without gaskets, the degree
of protection is IP 66. If the cable glands with cylindrical or tapered threads are screwed on the threaded hole of an apparatus, in order to guarantee an IP66 or IP66/68 degree of protection, threaded parts must be sealed with Loctite or similar. In order to maintain the IPX8 degree of protection, the cable entry shall be fi tted on enclosure witch satisfi es an immersion test under 30 meters of water during 7 days. Metric cable glands are made in accordance to
EN 62444 Standard.
