LAPP cable glands come from one of the most trusted and sought-after brand names in the international cabling and electrical power transmission industry. They can be used in measuring, controlling, the pharmaceutical industry for medical equipment, manufacturing of machines and equipment, and much more. A cable gland is a piece of apparatus that attaches and secures a cable to a piece of equipment. Cable glands form a seal around the cable and can also perform several other functions including earthing, grounding, bonding, strain relief and insulation.
Cable glands are suitable for electrical power, control, instrumentation, data and telecommunications cables. LAPP cable glands are constructed from either metal or plastic. Metal glands are suitable for use in more demanding environments, whilst plastic glands have a wider cable entry range and are ideal for flexible cables, where high strain relief is required. There are two main thread types on a gland - metric or PG. PG sizes range from PG7 to PG21 and metric sizes range from M6 to M63.
The IP rating of a gland can also be a key thing to consider when selecting a product. IP rated glands offer extra protection against the ingress of moisture and dust. IP ratings range from IP44 to IP69K, depending on the level of protection required.
