Cable glands for unarmoured and wire armoured or braided, tape armoured, lead sheathed cables.
“R series” cable glands offer a wide variety of products, suitable to meet all customer needs.
The cable glands are available in a standard version or with a male or female threaded backnut, the trumpet backnut perfect for mobile poses in which potential damages must be limited caused by repeated bending of the outgoing cable of the cable gland. Suitable versions for cables coated with lead sheathing are also available.
The material of the cable glands may be natural brass or nickel-plated brass, stainless steel AISI 316L and aluminium.
The interior washer may be EPDM or silicone; to be selected according to the operating ambient temperature, like the seal are available in nylon, silicone or PTFE or O-Rings available in EPDM or silicone.
The wide variety of available threads allows users to choose the most suitable for their needs; this will limit the use of threaded adaptors to reduce the overall dimensions and application costs.

Features

01 Safety

The rubber pad thanks to its particular design, clamps the external diameter of the cable for the entire height of the passage hole, ensuring the highest tensile seal and protecting the cable from any possible damage caused by different rubber pads, with its form which tightens the cable in only one point. This feature means that these cable glands do not require any additional resistance to the cable up to size 50.

02 Taylor-made

Possibility to choose between implementation of the body with OR or flat gasket, according to their needs and following material couplings in compliance with operating temperatures.

03 Simplicity

Reduced number of components, which reduces the possibility of loosing some parts or incorrect assembly.
