AGE Nylon cable glands are typically made from high-quality nylon materials, which offer excellent durability, resistance to impact and chemicals, and a high degree of insulation. They are widely used in various industries such as electrical, telecommunications, automation, and manufacturing.
The main components of a nylon cable gland include:
Body: The main body of the cable gland, usually cylindrical in shape, provides the housing for the cable and serves as the connection point between the cable and the equipment or enclosure.
Locknut: The locknut is used to secure the cable gland to the equipment or panel, ensuring a tight and secure fit.
Sealing Ring: The sealing ring, often made of rubber or synthetic material, forms a watertight or dust-tight seal around the cable, preventing the entry of foreign substances.
Compression Nut: The compression nut is used to secure the cable within the gland, providing strain relief and maintaining a tight seal.
To install a nylon cable gland, the following steps are typically followed:
Drill or punch a hole in the desired location of the enclosure or panel to accommodate the cable.
Insert the cable through the hole, ensuring that there is sufficient 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.
Nylon cable glands are available in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different cable diameters and thread types. They offer reliable cable management, strain relief, and environmental protection in diverse applications where cables need to be securely connected and sealed.
