Cable glands are mechanical cable entry devices. A cable gland, also known as a cord grip, cable strain relief, cable connector or cable fitting, is a device designed to attach and secure the end of an electrical cable to the equipment. A cable gland provides strain-relief and connects by a means suitable for the type and description of cable for which it is designed and should also maintain the integrity of the apparatus, such as enclosure, it is secured to.
CCG has been a global leader in the manufacturing of cable glands since 1972. The launch of the original Captive Component Gland™was a direct response to a call by international mining companies that experienced problems with cable glands having loose components being incorrectly installed in deep level mines. Very soon after, the concept of the CCG cable gland was adopted by other markets including the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industries who immediately recognized the safety advantages the Captive Component Gland™offers, especially for installations into hazardous locations.Most cable glands consist of several components such as cones, cone rings and seals, all of which must be correctly fitted to achieve a safe installation. Should the installer misplace, drop or mis-align a component, the gland will not seal properly to the apparatus it is attached to and it may not maintain a proper ground path. This means that the certification of the apparatus is now compromised. CCG's "built in safety™" has gained the acceptance by engineers and contractors world-wide. The reduced installation time with minimal parts and pieces, as well as the added safety and security of knowing the gland is installed properly, regardless of the installers skill level, are just a some of the core CCG benefits.
CCG's QuickStop-Ex Barrier Gland with instant mixing Injection Resin has all but eliminated the hassles that come with preparing and mixing of compound for old style two-part epoxy putty systems. The QuickStop-Ex injection resin system is instantly and 100% accurately mixed while simultaneously being injected into the barrier gland, reducing installation and increasing confidence of a proper installation.
