TSM | Strain Relief Metal Cable Gland For All Types of Unarmoured & Braided / Screened Cables

The TSM  range of strain relief metal cable glands are suitable for use in industrial (safe) areas with unarmoured or braided cable, and have a temperature rating of +105°c to -60°c.

With the widest cable sealing range on the market, the TSM reduces the need to purchase a range of different sized cable glands for a project, reducing the overall cost.

The TSM range meets the requirements of well-known cable gland standards including EN 62444 and IEC 62444.

For more specific applications IP68 & IP69X ingress discs or plugs are available.

Features include:

  • Finger-locking seal provides superior cable retention and strain relief
  • 3rd party certified to IEC/EN 62444
  • Widest cable range take on the market
  • Easy to install
  • Robust design, high quality materials
  • O ring interface seal included as standard
  • Ingress disc or IP68, 1P69 and IP69K rated IP plug options available
  • Product supplied in nickel-plated brass or stainless steel on request
  • Nickel-plated brass locknut available (ordering suffix 2TN)

Tightening tools may be required to aid installation. For further information, please click here.

Protection by Enclosure Against Mechanical Impact

It is critically important that enclosures afford a level of mechanical protection relevant to the area of installation that provides optimum electrical and operational safety. The international standard IEC 62262 covering ‘Degrees of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts (IK Code)’ outlines the requirements for testing and rating of enclosures of different materials, so that careful selection to suit the application can be achieved.

Area Classification Plan

A set of documents providing information on the explosive atmospheres of the plant as a minimum should comprise of: - Area classification drawings - A set of drawings showing to scale the complete layout of the facility, marking the extensions of the explosive atmospheres defined based on the - specific data associated with the flammable substances, sources of release and areas of risk for all elevations - Details of the flammable substances being stored, handled, or processed - Details of the sources of release - Information on the areas of risk - Information relating to the ventilation and air conditioning design in enclosed spaces, which affects the classification and extent of explosive atmospheres.
