Flexicon is launching a new range of flexible conduit fittings with an integrated cable gland that provides cable strain relief and an enhanced IP rating for the cable within metallic flexible conduits. The new fittings combine the properties of a conduit fitting and cable gland to provide an additional IP rating for the cable of up to IP68 (10 bar), or IP69K, depending on the cable used to achieve safe and secure protection.
The fittings can also withstand a wide temperature range of between -40degC and 100degC for static applications, and -20degC to 100degC for dynamic applications. An EMC cable gland version is also available on request, for use with Flexicon's overbraided range of flexible conduits. The new range can be used on metallic flexible conduits for 20mm, 25mm and 32mm, with cable clamping ranges of 7–13mm, 9–17mm and 11–21mm.
Typical applications for the cable gland fittings are in the heavy machinery construction sector and and rail industry. Suitable for applications subjected to vibration or extreme movement, this product combines the mechanical protection benefit of using flexible conduit as well as offering cable strain relief through the fitting.
Flexicon has also developed a range of flexible conduit fittings with integrated cable glands for use with non-metallic conduits. For further information, go to www.flexicon.uk.com.
