Triton T3CDS Series
Simple, Sequential, Right First Time Installation
Triton CDS (T3CDS) cable glands are designed for use in explosive atmospheres and provide superior sealing on the cable inner sheath, through the patented compensating displacement seal (CDS) system.
Suitable for a range of different armoured cable types and sizes, the unique design of the Triton CDS cable glands allows for a quick and easy assembly process, with a three step make-off procedure reducing installation time, cost and risk.
The Triton CDS cable gland range has ATEX, IECEx, cCSAus and UL certification (amongst others) to the latest global technical standards, and is fully compatible with IEC, AS/NZS, NEC & CEC wiring code rules.Jump to products
The Triton CDS (compensating displacement seal) system works by allowing the relevant cable gland components to be fully tightened metal-to-metal and relieve the potential excess forces that could be transferred to the cable bedding, eliminating cable damage.
A deluge seal, tested to Shell DTS01:91, is utilised within all products in this range. The seal is a proven, reliable ‘O’ ring arrangement which is integrated, protecting it from damage during its lifetime. The deluge seal works to prevent corrosion of the cable armour by ensuring that moisture cannot track through the cable gland threads and reach the armour termination.
The Triton CDS is designed for application in hazardous environments, where a rugged design is required so that the product can withstand the effects of the external environment over prolonged periods of time.
The design of the product allows for ease of installation – the Triton CDS incorporates a longer body length (see below) making it easy to install.
