Waterproof Cable Gland

What is the waterproof cable gland ?

A Cable Gland is a type of device that is used to terminate and secure the end of a cable. 

The Waterproof Cable Gland is designed to be waterproof, dustproof, Acid and alkali resistant,corrosion preventive and common solvent.

Thus, waterproof cable gland is widely used for marine equipment, wastewater treatment facilities and other applications where protection from water is a necessity.

According to the material of waterproof cable gland , there are brass cable glands, stainless steel cable glands (SS304,SS316) and nylon cable glands.

What’s the parts of waterproof cable gland ?

- Lock Nut: Nickel Plated Brass, SS304/SS316, Nylon
- O-ring : NBR or Silicon Rubber
- Body : Nickel Plated Brass, SS304/SS316, Nylon
- Claw : PA or Silicon Rubber
- Seal : NBR
- Sealing Nut : Nickel Plated Brass, SS304/SS316, Nylon

How do Waterproof Cable Gland work? 

Consisting of a body and a nut, the glands could either contain a separate O-ring and seal. 

The cable gland is then assembled within a circular cutout in the enclosure, capturing the wall of the enclosure between the body and nut creating that watertight seal. 

They are usually used to indicate the degree of protection of the waterproof cable gland, such as IP68,IP67,IP65.

What’s the meaning of IP68,IP67, IP65?

All waterproof cable gland are supplied with an IP (ingress protection) rating, 

which refers to the level of sealing effectiveness as defined in IEC 60529 (Formerly BS EN 60529:1992).

The rating consists of the letters IP followed by two digits, the higher the number the better the protection.  

Sometimes a number is replaced by X, which indicates that the enclosure is not rated for that specification.

The first digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against the ingress of solid foreign objects, 

from tools or fingers that could be hazardous if they came into contact with electrical conductors or moving parts, to airborne dirt and dust that could damage circuitry.

The second digit defines the protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against various forms of moisture (drips, sprays, submersion etc).

Below is a helpful chart which shows what each number represents:

Protection Level

Solids Rating (First Number)

Liquids Rating (Second Number)

0 or X


Not rated for protection against contact or ingress (or no rating supplied).



Not rated (or no rating supplied) for protection against ingress of this type.




Protection against solid objects larger than 50 mm (e.g. accidental contact with any large surface of the body, but not deliberate body contact).



Protection against vertically dripping water. No harmful effects when the item is upright.



Protection against solid objects larger than 12 mm (e.g. accidental finger contact).



Protection against vertically dripping water. No harmful effects when tilted up to 15° from normal position.



Protection against solid objects larger than 2.5 mm (e.g. tools).



Protection against water sprayed directly at any angle up to 60° off vertical.



Protection against solid objects larger than 1 mm (e.g. small objects such as nails, screws, insects).



Protection against splashing water from any direction. No harmful effects when tested for at least 10 minutes with an oscillating spray (limited ingress permitted).




Dust protected: partial protection against dust and other particulates (permitted ingress will not compromise the performance of internal components).



Protection against low-pressure jets. No harmful effects when water projected in jets from 6.3 mm nozzle, from any direction.



Dust tight: full protection against dust and other particulates.



Protection against powerful water jets. No harmful effects when water projected in jets from 12.5 mm nozzle, from any direction.





Protection against full immersion at up to 1 meter depth for up to 30 minutes. Limited ingress permitted with no harmful effects.





Protection against immersion beyond 1 meter. Equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water. The manufacturer may specify conditions.
