     Cable gland, also known as cable fixing gland, is widely used for fixing or protecting wires and cables of mechanical equipment, marine electrical equipment and anti-corrosion equipment. The main function is to fasten and seal the cable. Fastening refers to locking the cable through the gland head, so that the cable does not produce axial displacement and radial rotation, so as to ensure the normal connection of the cable. Sealing refers to IP protection, that is, dust-proof and waterproof. As for the protection grade of cable gland, it depends on the structure of the manufacturer's gland head. The highest protection grade of our company's cable gland products can reach up to IP68.
