Playing it safe in North America

Rittal cable gland gains new approval

(PresseBox) (Herborn, ) Product liability laws in North America are strict. Anyone supplying controls and switchgear to the North American market would be well advised only to install components with UL or CSA approval that have been approved for use in North America. Plant constructors can get help from Rittal: With the new cULus approval for its brass and polyamide cable glands, the system provider is now making it easier for system suppliers to meet the high demands placed on enclosures.

Cable glands allow cables and wires to be introduced safely into enclosures and housings. They are used when a high level of protection against dust, dirt and liquids (such as rainwater) is needed. Rittal cable glands made of brass or polyamide not only provide IP 68 protection in accordance with IEC 60529, they are now also ideally suited for the high safety requirements of North American applications, thanks to their additional cULus approval.

Rittal cable glands made of brass meet the NEMA / UL Type 4x requirements as well. The polyamide version is also cCSAus approved by the Canadian Standards Association.

Of course, all the cable glands are also available as CAD models for efficient planning in line with the concept of Industry 4.0 (the Internet of Things) and they are stored in the Eplan Data Portal.

The cable glands are available in sizes ranging from M12 to M63. In addition, Rittal also offers hygienic cable glands for use in food and beverage production, as well as versions for increased EMC requirements, with the latter also in hygienic design versions. All the cable glands achieve IP 68 protection category.
