The Standard of Sanhui IECEx/ATEx Cable Gland

For IECEx/Atex cable glands, we must have the certificates if we write them.

As for obtaining the certificate, we need to produce standard-compliant glands. The standards for ATEX/IECEx cable glands are as follows:

IEC60079-0/EN60079-0: Explosive Atmospheres – Part 0: Equipment – General Requirements

IEC60079-1/EN60079-1: Explosive Atmospheres – Part 1: Equipment Protection by Flameproof Enclosure “d”

IEC60079-31/EN60079-31: Explosive Atmospheres – Part 31: Equipment Dust Ignition Protection by Enclosure “t”

IEC60079-7/EN60079-7: Explosive Atmospheres – Part 7: Protection of Equipment by Increased Safety “e”

Therefore, the glands listed in our certificate have met the above requirements and can be used as explosion-proof, increased safety, and dust-explosion-proof ATEX/IECEx glands.

In terms of protection level, it has been tested in accordance with IEC/EN60079-0 IP66 and IEC/EN 60529 IP68 and can reach IP66/IP68 simultaneously.

The difference between M thread,G thread,NPT thread

For our certification, we can do three kinds of threads, the different types of threads for the explosion-proof type are as follows:

  • Metric: Exd, Exe, Ext type cable gland or explosion-proof equipment
  • NPT: Exd, Exe, Ext type cable gland or explosion-proof equipment
  • G: Exe, Ext type cable gland or explosion-proof equipment

Special Note: If your thread is G thread, we cannot provide fittings for flameproof environment

Cable Gland Sizes Differences

According to ATEX/IECEx regulations, we can only supply cable glands of certified size.

  • M thread, we made from M16*1.5~M90*1.5
  • NPT thread, we made NPT3/8~NPT3
  • G thread, we made G3/8~G3

The biggest difference between explosion-proof cable glands and waterproof or industrial cable glands is that waterproof cable glands can be customized with most details confirmed, but explosion-proof cable glands need certification support no matter how they are customized.
