Treotham introduces a new ATEX certified cable gland developed by PFLITSCH
in the ‘Ex-d’ and ‘Ex-e’ classes. Featuring a compact and slimline design, the new
LevelEx cable glands facilitate a space-saving installation, and can be
simply and securely assembled with just four components. The sealing elements
are of captive design and cannot be lost during assembly.
The LevelEx achieves IP 66 or IP 68 protection, thus corresponding
to the types of protection flameproof enclosure ‘Ex-d’ and Increased Safety ‘Ex-e’.
Key features of the new LevelEx cable glands include sizes ranging
from M16 to M63; NPT threads from 3/8″ to 2_Ó; galvanised brass and stainless
steel construction; cable diameters from 7mm to 56mm securely sealed thanks to
the large sealing range; and broad temperature range of -60¡C to +130¡C.
Their broad temperature range and ATEX/ IECEx certifications allow their
use under extreme environmental conditions.
During pressure resistance testing, the LevelEx fulfilled the
minimum requirement of 30 bar/10 sec. With a reference pressure of 20 bar and a
temperature of -60¡C, the new PFLITSCH ATEX certified cable gland can also be
used for any application. The IECEx certification proves all the components
used meet the requirements of IEC and EN standards 60079-0 and 600979-1.
The LevelEx cable glands are available from Treotham Automation.
