Cable glands range includes new pressure compensation glands

New pressure compensation cable glands from OKW protect electronics from condensation in sealed enclosures. OKW has also added black (RAL 9005) as a standard colour to many other cable glands and grommets in the range.

OKW’s universal cable glands and grommets are ideal for all kinds of applications. They can be custom pre-fitted to newly specified OKW enclosures or retrofitted to customers’ existing equipment.

The new pressure compensation cable glands (IP 68) use a ventilated membrane to stop temperature and pressure changes from causing condensation in hermetically sealed enclosures. Water entry pressure for the membrane is > 0.2 bar; RQ = 57 l/h (theoretical air flow rate at 0.07 bar). The new cable glands are available in sizes M12 x 1.5, M16 x 1.5 and M20 x 1.5. They are moulded from light grey (RAL 7035) or black (RAL 9005) polyamide (PA). Clamping blades provide strain relief.

Meanwhile, OKW’s M16 and M20 QUICK FIX cable glands (IP 68) are now available in black (RAL 9005) as well as light grey (RAL 7035) PA. They extend only a few millimetres into the enclosure. They are pushed into place from the outside before a left-hand-threaded locknut is tightened, again externally. No special tools are needed. The cable is fed in and secured as normal. These cable glands are suitable for 1-4 mm housing wall thicknesses.

OKW’s normal M12 x 1.5, M16 x 1.5 and M20 x 1.5 cable glands are now also moulded from black (RAL 9005) or silver grey (RAL 7001) PA as standard. They feature superior pull relief and sealing, and are rated IP 68 to 5 bar when using a sealing ring (separate product).

OKW’s IP 67 grommets for Ø 5-10 mm and Ø 6-13 mm cables are now also available in black (RAL 9005) and light grey (RAL 7035) V-0 TPE as standard. They are suitable for wall thicknesses of 0.5 to 3 mm.

Associated products and accessories in the range include cable glands with bending protection, a strain relief clamp, counternuts, polyethylene sealing rings, and EPDM grommets.

Flexible structural adhesive prevents glass shattering at Heathrow Terminal 5
Glass is one of the most striking features of Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport, but also a potential vulnerability. In the event of a terror attack shattering the glass, a high percentage of injuries in an explosion or bomb blast are caused by flying glass fragments rather than any incendiary device itself. Ensuring that can’t happen is a bonding solution from Advanced Adhesives.
