The following steps together with the information throughout this catalogue will ensure that the CMP Cable Gland selected will be fit for purpose and perform to relevant specifications.

Understanding the intended installation for the Cable Gland, check the following:
For installations in explosive atmospheres, special considerations should be taken into account to ensure compliance with national or international standard codes of practice.
In addition to entry thread sealing washers, CMP also provides standard locknuts, grounding locknuts, earth tags, serrated washers and shrouds as required, which should be used as appropriate to the installation standard or equipment configuration.
These CMP accessories may be critical to the safety of the installation and overall performance, it is vital that the CMP accessories are correctly specified and installed. Accessories are not typically included with the cable glands as standard, unless a cable gland pack/kit is ordered.
In order to maintain product warranty it is vital that genuine CMP accessories are used for installation of CMP cable glands. Compatibility of material selection, short circuit rating (in the case of earth tags and grounding locknuts) and sealing performance (in the case of sealing washers) cannot be guaranteed if accessories from other sources are used.
*If the cable armour is of a non-standard material, e.g. Aluminium Wire Armour, it may be necessary to consider an alternative Cable Gland material, e.g. Aluminium.
**For certain medium voltage and high voltage cables, with higher fault rate levels, CIEL Cable Glands, which have been tested for higher SCC faults may be required.
