Cable gland replacement is a sealed deal
28 November 2011
Bury based safety seal manufacturer, Roxtec is targeting instrumentation and control system designers and manufacturers with an innovative new product - the BG module, which provides a space saving method for sealing metal clad and armoured cables as they enter an enclosure. The system can be used when a number of armoured cables require grounding in order to comply with bonding and grounding regulations.
These new Roxtec products are claimed to be the only multi-cable entry systems certified to meet international electrical schemes with bonding and grounding of low to high voltage metal clad or armoured cables – a fact that UK managing director, Graham O'Hare believes places them in a strong position when it comes to choosing a cable entry system.
“Cable glands could soon be a thing of the past as a result of this product, which not only offers better value but is also easier to install. The BG is very competitive when placed against traditional products, as it dramatically reduces space requirements and installation time. In a typical cabinet or enclosure a single cut-out for the Roxtec system can replace up to 32 cable glands, thus reducing the area needed by 70 per cent. Smaller and lighter control cabinets will result in a considerable cost saving.
“The real saving are in labour costs; as the panel builder does not have to cut and re-attach connectors it saves his labour and, moreover, limits the amount of work that needs to be carried out, thus reducing the risk of human error.”
Roxtec BG modules offer lightning protection and are ATEX rated for use in hazardous areas. They also provide a gas-tight seal and protect against water, blast, rodents and fire.
