Cable glands

Cable glands

A cable gland is a device for connecting a cable to a piece of equipment. The gland holds the connecting cable and provides a strain-relief mechanism to prevent damage. The gland is used as a sealing and/or termination device to ensure the device's enclosure maintains integrity. The cable gland may also be used to make connections through a wall, bulkhead or gland plate.

Cable glands must resist mechanical forces during assembly and in operation and maintain dimensions throughout their design life.
