Ex-Cable glands ATEX
Cable glands with metric screw-in threads are now standard and had replace the PG cable glands that were formally used. The CEAG plastic cable glands are in accordance with EN 60079-0: 2012 and can be used in Ex-e/Ex-i housings in hazardous areas of the Zones 1, 21, 2 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. Depending on the surface roughness the use of an additional sealing ring may not be necessary. The good mechanical and handling features are achieved by using a modified Polyamide material and a optimized tooling area.
For introducing cables or leads into metal housings, explosion-protected housing or, if reinforced cables have to be introduced, metal cable glands are used. Metal glands are designed for use in areas of Zone 1, 2, 21 and Zone 22 at no risk of explosion and for cables with and without reinforcement.
