Posted: Friday 22nd October 2010

Weidmüller, the leading provider of solutions for electrical connectivity, transmission and conditioning of power, has launched a range of Hazard Area Cable Glands. Weidmüller takes the safety of its customers seriously and takes a tough approach to ensuring its products always meet the necessary regulations. The Klippon® cable glands have therefore been designed to complement the range of Hazardous Area Enclosures.

The Klippon® Glands for armoured and un-armoured cables are designed for use in Ex e (increased safety) and Ex d (flameproof) applications.The new range is in addition to their already established assortment of cable glands that are for use in standard industrial applications or for Ex-zone applications.

Weidmüller introduced the new Klippon® STB stainless steel and sheet steel enclosures range to build upon its philosophy of competence and quality in the supply of enclosures and customer solutions for standard industrial and harsh environment applications. The Klippon Cable Glands compliment the Klippon® STB, POK, and TB as a sealing and terminating device to ensure that the characteristics of the enclosure which the cable enters can be maintained adequately.

Additionally there are Klippon® stopping plugs and accessories such as locknuts, IP washers, serrated washers, shrouds and earth tags available. The cable glands are certified according to the latest ATEX (EN 60079-0/1/7 and EN 61241-0/1) and IECEx (IEC 60079-0/1/7) standard and are marked with the Weidmüller brand.

Depending on the type of gland it is possible to terminate screened, braided, lead sheathed cables as well as steel wire and steel tape cables from M20 to M75. They have a temperature withstand range from –60 °C to +180 °C.

The range consists of Klippon® KDSU, Klippon® KDSW, Klippon® KDSX glands. An electrical bond between the cable armour and the gland is ensured. In addition, the gland is fitted with two separate sealings to seal the outer and inner cable insulation. The Klippon® KSG gland is designed to terminate un-armoured cables.

Klippon® KUB Barrier gland provides a single pull resistant seal on the outer sheath of any cable but is only suitable for Ex d applications. Klippon® KSPM and the Klippon® KSPA Stopping Plugs are used for plugging threaded holes before the cable glands are installed.

These glands protect electrical equipment against exposure to mechanical influences by providing a secure and tightly sealed connection with an enclosure. They are also used to protect people against dangers that can arise from using equipment. The Klippon® family offers a comprehensive range from which to choose, ensuring that the right one can be selected for each project.
