Cable-glands for armoured and non armoured cables

Explosion Proof - Boxes, accesories and components

code:

EXPA / EXPN

GENERAL INFORMATION
Ex d IIC and Ex e II according to IEC 79.1 and 79.7
Ex DIP A 21 T6 (for zone 21) according to IEC 1241-1-1.
IP 65.
APPLICATIONS
Designed for electrical installations in classified
areas, to use outdoors, where dust or any
other external agent is present. Used with armoured and
non-armoured cables, with frames like helical of galvanized
steel wire, braid of galvanized steel wire and helical of
galvanized steel band: used in entries of command boxes,
control stations, lighting fixtures, pannels, engines, etc.
In the armoured cable model, the press of armour is made
by a double cone which is compressed inside by the
pieces that provides the continuity of mass fixing the
wire mechanically
It has a double hermetic seal: one flame-proof and another
weather-proof to prevent the entry of water, dust, etc.

FEATURES
Manufacture:
Metal body of brass, acrylonitrile gasket, watertightness
washer of polyamide.
On request: Metal body of nickel brass.

Accesories:
Brass nut: Limited to e protection boxes with thin
walls and through hole.
On request: Nickel brass.

Thread Type: (see table of Threaded Entries)


- 1/2" to 2 in N.P.T.
- M20 to M63 in Metric 1,5.
On request:
- 1/2" to 2 in BSPT
- PG 11 to PG 48.

Brass terminals: To provide internal and / or external


earth in boxes with non-continuity of mass or when using
non-armoured cables is required earth.
On request: Nickel brass.

1.1 - Peel the end of the cable, considering that the length "X" until the wiring position
must include the body length between threads.
1.2 - Cut the metal mesh leaving an useful length as long as the conic zone of the
clamping and earthing cone (5) plus 1or 2 mm.

2.1 - Thread the tighten nut with the weather proof gasket inside (1), the reduction body (3), the clanping
and earthing ring so that the main side cone remains at the cut end of cable.

Cable-glands for armoured and non armoured cables


Explosion Proof - Boxes, accesories and components

code:

EXPA / EXPN

RECOMENDATIONS
The choice of the right system
1 - Set the classified area for the installation.
2 - Define the type of cable to use (armoured or non armoured).
3 - Determine the entries of the element you want to enter (diameter and thread type):
If it is possible use NPT threads. Remember that Delga s cable-glands and standard accesories are
manufactured in this type of thread, so you will obtain a quick delivery and reposition of parts.
4 - Define the diameters under armor and external (if corresponds) of the cable to use.
5 - According to the cable s diameter, choose the exact cable-gland.
6 - Order the chosen option by its code. Otherwise, detail their characteristics
(cable`s diameter and thread type).

Recommendations for use


1 - Verify that the peeled length of the cable is just what you re needing.
2 - Grease all the threads before assembling.
3 - Be sure that cable is strongly pressed by the corresponding gasket.
4 - In the case of using an armoured cable, select the adjustment ring that better adapts to the armour type of cable s:
- big ring (with external slot) for helical armour of steel tape or wire.
- small ring (without external slot) for helical armour of wire or braid.
5 - Cut the armour in a way that can enclose the shape of the cone.
6 - When using the "e" version with conic threads (NPT) the hole where it will be applied must be adjust
by the corresponding nut.
7 - In the "e" version, the watertightness washer must be placed and adjust so much as it is possible
without deforming it, but bear in mind that it must support and exert a considerable pressure.
8 - Use just the right accesories.
