A YAGE NPT nylon cable gland is specifically designed for securing and sealing cables as they pass through enclosures or panels with NPT threaded holes. It provides a reliable and watertight seal, protecting cables from dust, moisture, and other contaminants.
The key features of an YAGE NPT nylon cable gland include:
NPT Thread Size: NPT cable glands come in various thread sizes, such as 1/2", 3/4", 1", and so on, which correspond to the pipe thread size they are designed to fit.
Locknut: A locknut is used to secure the cable gland to the equipment or panel, ensuring a tight and secure fit.
Sealing Ring: NPT cable glands feature a sealing ring, usually made of rubber or synthetic material, that creates a watertight or dust-tight seal around the cable, preventing the ingress of moisture, dust, or other contaminants.
Compression Nut: The compression nut is used to secure the cable within the gland, providing strain relief and maintaining a tight seal.
NPT nylon cable glands are commonly used in various industrial applications, including electrical, plumbing, and automation, where NPT threaded holes are present. They provide a reliable and secure connection for cables, ensuring effective cable management and protection.
To install an NPT nylon cable gland, the following steps are typically followed:
Identify the NPT threaded hole in the enclosure or panel where the cable gland will be installed.
Insert the cable through the hole, leaving enough length for proper termination inside the enclosure.
Slide the sealing ring onto the cable, followed by the compression nut.
Insert the cable into the body of the cable gland until the sealing ring is positioned just outside the enclosure or panel.
Tighten the compression nut onto the body of the cable gland, compressing the sealing ring and securing the cable in place.
Finally, secure the cable gland to the equipment or panel using the locknut, ensuring a firm and secure connection.
NPT nylon cable glands provide a reliable and durable solution for cable management, ensuring the integrity of electrical connections in applications that use NPT threaded holes.
