Cable glands are used in conjunction with cable and wiring throughout electrical instrumentation and automation systems industries. Cable glands (cable fittings) secure wire or cable to electrical equipment to seal out dust, dirt, liquids and to provide cable strain relief. Cable glands are used as a sealing and termination device to ensure that the characteristics of the enclosure which the cable enters can be maintained adequately.
