Cable Gland: Ultimate FAQ Guide
Figure 1 Cable Gland
This FAQ guide on cable gland comes with some essential information on the quality of the product for Rayphen’s product quality. Aside from getting the basic idea of how cable gland works, this guide also contains vital information about the supplier.
Q1. How does the Cable Gland Work?
Figure 2 Cable Gland Operation
Cable glands are metallic and non-metallic material that gives a secured and lasting connection between the electronic appliance and cable to which it’s connected. The device works by using a constriction “O” shaped ring element to tighten the cable to its end. By this, the model seals off any harmful electricity flame or spark from reaching the connected appliances.
The model comprises multiple weaved pieces that match together. The matched component helps clinch the cord and ensure the gland assembly and cable are fixed to any appliance. The weaved-like part is the passage that enables direct access to the electrical apparatus.
Q2. How do I install a Cable Gland?
Figure 3 Installing Cable Gland
A proper reading of the product manual comes first before any installation. Start by taking off the cable gland, then separate the gadget’s nut to uncover the inner metallic component. Ensure the peeled outlet matches the size of your gland. Further, you need to fix the gland’s right verge into the cable and put the peeled cord adequately around the gland. Carefully re-fixed the loosed nut and fasten it using a spanner or related device.
Q3. How many Cable Gland sizes do you have?
Figure 4 Sizes of Cable Gland
We have different cable sizes for supply. These sizes range from PG7, PG9, PG11, PG13.5, PG16, PG21, PG29, P36, PG42, and PG48. We measured the cable glands using the nominal thread size. 18TPI and 16TPI are the two threads per inch common to all sizes. For instance, PG48, PG42, as well as PG36 all have 16TPI. On the other hand, PG11, PG9, and PG13.5 all have 18TPI. Nevertheless, the pitch, inner diameter, and cable diameter vary from one cable gland to another.
As for the metal cable gland, it also comes in different sizes. For example, the IP68 cable cover designed from brass comes in NPT sizes which range from ⅜ to 1 inch. Also, there are M20, M25, M32, M40, M50, M63, M75, and M100. M20 double compression cable gland comes with G1/2 size in inches.
Q4. What is the best Cable Gland for a 10mm cable?
Figure 5 Best Cable Gland for a 10mm cable
The best cable gland for 10mm cable is 16mm. This size is large enough to hold the equipment to an electrical cable’s rear. Using a different size outside this range may be risky or makes electrical connections difficult or challenging.
Q5. Why do we use Cable Glands?
Figure 6 Importance of Cable Gland
The cable gland protects the electrical gadget by fending off exterior impurities such as dirt, dust, fluid, and electrical spark. The device helps fasten cables that go into the gland disk. With the cable’s proper sealing ability, the product stops the cord from pulling out or getting twisted.
Q6.How to select a Cable Gland?
Figure 7 How do you select a Cable Gland
Selecting a cable gland is challenging. This is because there are a plethora of cable covers on the shelves. However, this guide helps you make the right decision. Simply begin by identifying your environment. Know if the habitat is safe or risky. Is the product for outdoor or indoor purposes? A proper thought about this is the first leap to choosing a cable gland.
Recognition of the variety of cables to be utilized is also an important thing to consider. Do this by assessing the structure, size, and material of your cable gland. You can either choose between plastic or metal cable glands. For armored cable, you may need to examine the category and design of the cable armor. Also, the original diameter of the internal bedding as well as the lead covering.
Likewise, the inspection of the exact length of the entire cable diameter is essential. The kind and size of the cable passage in the electrical mating device should be adequately considered. Finally, verify whether fixing features such as locknuts and
serrated washers are needed before use.
Q7. Why is Cable Gland Earthing Required
Figure 8 Why do you need Cable Gland earthing
Earthing is employed in virtually all electrical installations. It is referred to as the grounding method. It refers to the transmission of instant electricity directly to the earth disc or pipe. Earthing your cable gland helps regulate your conductors and protect you from electrocution.
Q8. How to Calculate Cable Gland Size?
You can calculate cable gland size using different measurement options. For instance, you can use the nominal thread size. We have different PG such as PG48, PG42, PG36, PG16, PG11, PG9, and many more under this measurement. You can also calculate the cable gland using diameter. These sizes range from 2mm, 10mm, 16mm, 20mm and many more.
Irrespective of the means you choose to calculate, ensure you make the calculation appropriately, so you don’t order for your cable wire’s wrong gland. If you still have difficulties calculating the size, you can always contact us for assistance. You can be sure to get a swift reply.
Q9 What is the Best Cable Gland for Multiple Cables?

Q16. What are the Ratings and Standards for a Cable Gland?
Cable glands are designed with the budget and the safety of users’ minds. This is because these products are built to provide strain relief, and improve all electric cables’ performance. However, the gland comes with a standard rating to put its customer’s mind at rest and know the quality of its purchasing.
Today, all our cable glands are rated by the Ingress Protection (IP), depending on the gland’s purpose and design. Irrespective your preferred model, all our cable glands are tested and certified by the general thread standard. As for the IP code, IEC standard 60529 was published by the International Electrotechnical Commission in 2004. This IP standard rates how effective the cover protects the gland against any form of intrusion or dust provided by the foreign objects in the electrical enclosure.
In this standard rating, the IP code is IPXX, in which the Arabic numerals are the XX. At the same time, this IP format serves different purposes. International Protection code (IP) determines the level of protection provided. The first marking number means dustproof and indicates the contact protection level and foreign object protection. The second number refers to waterproof, which suggests the water-resistant status. As a matter of fact, the conventional product inspection levels include IP23, IP44, IP54, IP55, IP65, IP66, IP67, and IP68 levels.
The purpose of the test standard is as follows:
- Specify the enclosure protection level specified by the electrical equipment load;
- Prevent the human body from approaching the dangerous parts in the shell;
- Prevent solid foreign objects from entering the equipment in the shell;
- Prevent harmful effects on the equipment due to water entering the shell.
