Cable Glands

Cable glands with metric screw-in threads are now standard and have replaced the PG cable glands that were formerly used.

The PG cable glands are still available as spare parts and for the upgrading of already installed apparatus.

The new CEAG plastic cable glands are in accordance with EN 60079-7 and can be used in ATEX regulated Ex-e/Ex-i housings in hazardous explosive areas of the Zones 1, 2 21 and 22.

Optional and not used cable glands must be closed with certified blanking plugs. The blanking plugs allow for a flexible and cost effective utilization of the explosion-protected appliances. Changes and upgrades can be then easily carried out at a later date.

The outstanding feature of the CEAG cable glands is the large cable connection area.

A high IP safety standard is achieved with the integrated sealing lip on the screw-in cable entries. The good mechanical and handling features are achieved by using a modified Polyamide material and a optimized tooling area. Larger sizes have GRP lock collars to reduce distortion over time when secured to the cable.
