Title: Cable and Cable Glands


1
Cable and Cable Glands
  • Basic Introduction

2
What are Cable Glands?
Cable and Cable Glands
  • Cable glands are fittings used to terminate
    electrical cable and cords that are installed
    into enclosures, motors, pumps, generators,

Cable Glands

Why Cable Glands?
Cable and Cable Glands
  • Cable glands are the universal replacement for a
    condulet. They are used in every country in the
    world and will continue to be used more and more,
    even in the USA. Why?
  • Cable glands offer superior corrosion resistance
    (up to IP68) over iron and aluminum condulets.
    Most outlast even PVC coated condulets.
  • Smaller in size, installation versatility.
  • Many glands offer cost and labor savings,
    especially with the price of conduit where it is
    today. Most OEM customers are already using
    cable and glands. Other customers such as
    automotive, pulp and paper, and pharmaceuticals
    are gravitating toward cable and glands.
    Chemical plants and refineries are also using
    glands for process and instrumentation areas.
  • The IEC standard wiring method is with cable and
    glands worldwide. IEC Electrical Sales are
    much larger globally than NEC.

Cable and Cable Glands
What Questions Do I Need to Ask the Customer in
Order to Sell Our Cable Glands?
  • What type of cable are you using?
  • SWA, GSWB, MC?
  • What is the outer diameter (od) of the cable?
  • Remember that most of our cable glands are made
    in Europe, and therefore are measured in
    millimeters (mm).
  • It is critical to correctly mate the cable gland
    with appropriately sized cable.
  • We recommend that the cable od falls in the
    middle (midpoint) of the published cable range
    for that particular gland.

What Questions Do I Need to Ask the Customer in
Order to Sell Our Cable Glands?
  • What material cable gland do you require for this
    project?
  • Brass, nickel-plated (NP) brass, stainless steel,
    GRP (glass reinforced polyester)?
  • What is your hazardous area rating?
  • Class 1, Division 2, Zone 1?
  • What certifications do you need?
  • CSA, ATEX, both?
  • What NEMA/IP ratings do you need?
  • NEMA 4X, IP66?
  • What type of thread do you need on the male end
    of the gland?
  • NPT, Metric, PG threads?

16
Frequently Asked Questions
  • 1. What doesnt the cable fit the gland?
  • Many cable manufacturers tolerance does not
    actually match what their cut-sheets state. The
    solution is to make sure that the cable falls as
    close to the midpoint cable range that our gland
    will accept. That way, even if the cable is out
    of tolerance, it can be properly terminated in
    our glands.
  • 2. Why are we not price competitive with Hawke
    or CMP?
  • The majority of examples and applications we have
    seen are not comparing apples to apples. For
    example, our TMCX is not the correct cross
    reference to the Hawke 501/453/UNV (universal
    cable gland). In fact, our TAB1 Series is at a
    fraction of the cost of the TMCX cable gland.
    The reality is that we are very competitive with
    Hawke and CMP, and will continue to grow our
    business.

17
Frequently Asked Questions
  • 3. How do we differentiate ourselves from the
    competition?
  • Combining CAPRI, CEAG, CCH, and Peppers cable
    glands together, we offer the broadest line of
    cable glands in the industry.
  • We have listened to our end-users and customers
    by providing an accessory kit simply add K1 to
    the part number and you will receive 5 parts in a
    bag vs. 5 separate parts to order with Hawke and
    CMP proving cost, labor, and transactional cost
    savings to our customers.
  • Many of our stocked cable glands in Roanoke, VA
    include the accessory kit K1.
  • 4. I have heard that CMP has a triple rated cable
    gland?
  • CCH and Hawke have taken an honest approach to
    the marketplace and offer both CSA and ATEX dual
    listings on a single fitting. CMP claims to have
    UL / CSA / ATEX triple ratings, however, after
    further review of the certificates published on
    their own Web site, their UL listing is only for
    NEMA 4X NO hazardous area UL listings.

18
Frequently Asked Questions
  • 5. Does CCH offer all thread types?
  • Yes we do. In selecting cable glands, we
    manufacture NPT, Metric, and PG threaded cable
    glands. We also have a full line of adapters
    from NPT to metric, metric to NPT, PG to metric,
    and so on.
  • 6. What does NP (nickel-plated) brass do for the
    customer?
  • It provides a higher level of corrosion
    resistance than brass cable glands. From a
    pricing standpoint, it falls in the middle of
    brass and stainless steel glands, so many
    customers will go this route. Nickel-plated
    brass may be confused with stainless steel from
    the aesthetic standpoint, so be careful with this.
