The Pro-term ‘BITE’ SWA cable gland
The all new Pro-term ‘BITE gland has many new and innovative features, these ‘patent pending’ features make
Steel Wire Armoured (SWA) cable termination easier and safer.
The unique features are:
a) An all plastic outer body, this super tough Nylon 66 plastic body is the mechanical driver to the incisor ring (armour trap)
b) This new gland uses a special twin ridge annular incisor ring to trap and incise the SWA armour to the metal cone, retention is very high as the incisor ring bites into the armour.
c) The ‘clip in’ incisor ring is ‘free spinning’ against the plastic driver.
d) Metal cone is at the core of the cable gland and has the integral male thread for panel mount anchorage.
e) Both the cone body and the incisor ring have retention mechanisms so that they are retained by the plastic parts.
f) The anchorage lock nut has face teeth so that during the rotation of the nut during installation bites past painted finishes, this is an automatic grounding system (AGS)
g) The bite 20S (10-16mm cable diameter) utilises a reverse fitting of the panel anchorage (male cone and anchor) so as to have an absolute minimum intrusion into the panel/product/box. The intrusion is a mere 6mm inside the panel.
The technology of the Pro-term BITE gland produces the following advantages:
• Automatic Grounding System (AGS) via special incisor anchorage nut.
• No loose parts, captive components.
• Indoor or outdoor use as standard IP68
(fully waterproof to submersible standard)
• No electric shock from the fitting, double
insulated status is maintained.
• The free spinning armour trap incisor ring
prevent sthe distortion of the armour wires under whilst rotary compression.
• This cable gland does not suffer metal corrosion problems to the outside atmosphere.
