† Grooved Cone (X) is predominantly used for Wire Braid (e.g. GSWB, TCWB), Steel Tape Armour (STA, DSTA) and Aluminium Strip Armour (ASA) but is also suitable for Single Wire Armour (SWA), Aluminium Wire Armour (AWA) and Pliable Wire Armour (PWA) if the range is outside that of the Stepped Cone (W).

Note: Grooved Cone (X) dimensions shown in the Cable Gland Selection Table below are for a double wire strand of braid armour cables. Tapes can also be doubled over. For cables that have only a single layer of armour such as SWA the clamping range should be used as shown in the table below.

Stepped (W) Cone is suitable for Single Wire Armour (SWA), or Aluminium Wire Armour (AWA) cables.

Additional Information

Combating Galvanic Corrosion at CMP

The type and thickness of nickel coatings applied to brass cable glands varies significantly around the world, and many of the solutions adopted are inherently porous, meaning that they are unable to provide complete protection against chemical attack, corrosion, or material break-down. There are typically two types of nickel plating in common use, these being electro nickel plating and electro-less nickel plating.
