Spring Clamp Gland Installation

Spring-clamp installation

The Spring-clamp range is designed to ground and retain all types of braided cables in particular SY and CY cables.

The Spring-clamp cable gland has a waterproof plastic outer and  the core of the fitting is Electroless Nickel plated aerospace grade aluminium.

The grounding and anchorage is via a twin torsion spring.

The Automatic Grounding System (AGS) is achieved via hardened teeth on the conductive body interface.
