Additional Information

BS 6121-1:1989 vs IEC 62444 / EN 62444

Whilst new standards such as IEC 62444 and EN 62444 have more recently been introduced, which CMP Products fully complies with, BS 6121-1:1989 still remains a very important benchmark for users and manufacturers around the world, due mainly to the fact that it is a more onerous construction standard than others published. This will therefore be especially relevant where a national cable gland standard isn’t available. The tables below show the maximum cable entry bore size and tolerances permitted through the range of BS 6121-1:1989 cable gland sizes.

Industry Standard Cable Gland Designations

Cable glands may be designed, tested and manufactured to various standards around the world, but as a long established UK-based manufacturer, part of CMP’s history includes close participation in the development of British Standards for these products.

Cable Gland Sizing – Enlarged Cable Diameters

The CMP combination gland concept utilises the forward portion of one cable gland size andthe rear portion of the next cable gland size up (larger). This enables cable gland selection for braided or armoured cables where the difference between the inner bedding and outer sheath cannot be accommodated with a standard cable gland size. Combination cable glands for braided & armoured cables are available for both industrial and explosive atmospheres cable gland types with both inner and outer seals.
