Cable glands ensure the safe, tight connection of cables to an enclosure, so they protect the electronics inside against mechanical influences, but also against dust and moisture.
After insertion, the new plastic plug-in cable glands (S-MBF) lock in automatically, without the need for a counter nut. This makes assembly much faster. A suitable disassembly tool can be used to remove the plug-in cable gland again (ingress protection 66/68).
Pressure compensation cable glands made of polyamide (Type MBF) and nickel-plated brass (Type MSBF) are also new products in BOPLA’s cable gland range, and both provide ingress protection IP 66/67. The two variants are recommended for all applications in which there is not enough space for a separate pressure compensation element.
The latest additions to the product range are cable glands made of plastic (MBF) or nickel-plated brass (MSBF) with a slitted sealing insert. The slitting allows the insertion of ready-assembled cables through a cable gland. Cable glands with a slitted sealing insert provide ingress protection IP 69.
In addition to the M12 plastic pressure compensation elements, BOPLA now offers M12 metal pressure compensation elements and M6 plastic pressure compensation elements. Pressure compensation elements are used to compensate for pressure variations caused by changes in temperature. They prevent the formation of a vacuum inside the enclosure, which results in the intake of moisture through the enclosure seal. This is how pressure compensation elements ensure the level of ingress protection of the electronics enclosures.
