Thread: Cable glands

  1. #1

    Default Cable glands

    I've been using nickel plated brass glands so far without a flex nut.
    While looking for flex nut options I'm finding either stainless steel or nylon; however,the nylon only comes with nylon glands.
    I'm wondering how may are using nylon glands vs the brass models, and if you use a flex but which one?

    Thing I've seen at least one of Packhorses with the nylon model.

    Hello Codiak,

    Don't know where your'e living and how good your German is.....
    These glands I've been using on some occassions:
    They are (I think) the glands you asking for? They are fiberglass re-inforced, they seal IP68 up to 10 bar.
    Kind regards,

    Thanks JosB,
    Those are similar to the nylon ones I've seen.

    I use metal or nylon depending on the canister. If I think it's going to get tugged about I use thicker 4-core 10mm cable, so no strain relief.

    Nylon has never let me down when you use it with Sikaflex and a cable tie. The only issue I have is the ones I've seen have very short threads and come with a nylon screw...which gets the glue treatment. Nylon will never be as strong as metal however it all depends on the user/abuser.

    Thanks Kelm,
    Exactly the type of feedback I was looking for....
    Think I'll give the Nylon ones a try.
