Brass Cable Gland

What is Brass Cable Gland?

Brass cable glands are made of brass or nickel plated brass. 

Brass is an alloy consisting mainly of Copper (Cu) and Zinc (Zn) which is characterized by high qualities of ductility and malleability, 

as well as good resistance to corrosion. 

Nickel plating is a surface treatment that improves the corrosion resistance and durability of the brass cable gland over time, 

even in difficult and particularly aggressive environments. 

Therefore, brass cable glands are stronger than plastic cable glands, however, not as strong as stainless steel cable glands.

Yueqing Jixiang Connector Co., Ltd is a leadingr China brass cable glands manufacturer with high quality and reasonable price.

The clamping range refers to the cable size range that can be clamped by the brass cable gland under correct installation.

How do I choose a brass cable gland size?

Before you consider the size of brass cable gland, you need to be familiar with the three common threads: 

Metric thread, PG thread and NPT thread and know the difference. 

Metric thread is the most commonly used type, as it is used internationally. 
The threads have an angle of 60 degrees, and in the case of cable glands, typically have a 1.5 mm pitch between threads.

PG thread for Panzer-Gewinde, which is a German thread type. 

The threads have an angle of 80 degrees as well as a smaller depth than the other two thread types.

NPT thread for National Pipe Thread and is an American thread type.NPT threads are usually longer than Metric or PG and taper toward the end. 

The threads have an angle of 60 degrees and have a 1/16 taper so the threads compress against each other when tightened. 

After you identify the thread of the brass cable gland, you can choose the correct size according to the cable bundle diameter.
