Male-female adaptors (code: A)

The male-female thread adaptors are used when the threads – type or dimension – of the cable gland and the hole of the equipment are different. The hexagonal adaptors fit spanners up to 55 mm while the cylindrical ones fit larger sizes.

Main regulatory requirements:

The user has to use only one adaptor for the assembly of a cable entry. The user mustn’t to close an adaptor or a coupling with a plug. These accessories are intended for the assembly of a cable entry only.

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 flat 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 fitted on enclosure witch satisfies an immersion test under 30 meters of water during 7 days. Metric cable glands are made in accordance to 
EN 62444 Standard.
