Today, we live in two worlds when it
comes to approvals for explosion-proof cable glands.
We have the ATEX (IECEx) mainly found in
Europe. Then, we have the UL Class/Div world—well-known in North America,
especially here in the United States.
Although there are good reasons to use
either the ATEX or UL, there is a need out there for a single cable gland that
can be used worldwide and isn’t restricted to just one market. This is still
the biggest challenge when looking for the perfect cable gland.
Why is this? The reason is due to UL Class/Div requires different test parameters than ATEX, with its own test methods for impact and a 30 BAR static pressure test that may require a different design. As a result, this makes it almost impossible to also include EMI (electromagnetic interference) protection.
Along with demanding outstanding quality,
the market needs an economical and smart cable gland solution. This means a
small footprint with optimal EMI protection as well as a simple assembly
concept—saving both time and money.
All-in-One Solution Coming to Global
Here at Sealcon, we listened, and we rose to the challenge. In order to meet the global market demand, we streamlined our cable glands to bring you an all-in-one solution: The Metal Ex Cable Gland.
Learn more about our Sealcon Metal Ex Cable Glands.
This innovative cable gland covers all three ATEX, IECEx, and UL Class/Zone approvals—reducing supply chain and engineering efforts as well as time and cost for market-specific production and approvals.
Along with the existing ATEX / IECEx approval, our Metal Ex Cable Gland series is now certified cCSAus for Class/Zone, which allows you to use the Glands in Class I and II Division 2 applications after NEC codes 501 and 502.
With that, we’d like to share 4 steps to get your application ready for
Choose thread size and cable diameter range
Get cCSAus class/zone file, check NEC Article 501 with clauses 37.3 and 37.4
Check cCSAus class/zone markings on the bag label (the gland itself only shows an ATEX / IECEx marking)
Hand over cCSAus class/zone file to your UL/CSA inspector, pointing out NEC Article 501
Sealcon’s Full Line of Ex-e/Ex-d Cable Glands:
Our complete product line of Ex cable glands is designed for Hazardous Areas and increased safety locations and all of them provide these key benefits:
The patented recess form seal guarantees NEMA 4x & NEMA 6 (IP68 / IP69K) at
150 PSIG (10 BAR)
Resistance & Cable Protection:
Overlapping clamping splines apply a concentric force, preventing the form seal
from being pulled out of the gland. This ensures pull-out protection without
damage to the cable.
Machined O-Ring Groove: All or our Ex Cable Glands come with an O-Ring,
resulting in a Liquid Tight Seal between cable gland and installation.
Simply push the cable through Cable Glands – Tighten Dome Nut Done! No
disassembly of the cable glands required!

Enclosures for High-Density Cable Management Needs
If engineers were allowed, they would give you 50 buttons—but when you’re driving it’s not feasible to use them all, so it’s better to have the select few that you really need. Sealcon LLC prides itself on offering selective and personalized product solutions for specific application requirements. In the determination of relevant industry needs, we analyzed our customers’ cable management requirements and are able to offer you premium Industrial Enclosures. Enclosures are industrial shells that house smart electrical and/or electronic components, wired up and secured in a place with liquid-tight cable. Simply put, these allow you to organize great volumes of cables from networking switches to patch panels. Wires exiting the enclosures are consequently secured by Cable Strain Reliefs, Connectors, and/or Conduits, for a total cable management package. Consider the Industrial Enclosures to be your office: is it long, tall, big, or small? —we offer these in a host of sizes to fit your applications. In the same way that you use your office for individual work, meetings, parties, and so forth, our Industrial Enclosures may be used for a variety of applications.
Sealcon offers two materials for Industrial Enclosures, which meet UL: Polycarbonate and Fiberglass. Enclosures are modified or prepared with simple holes or knockouts where needed for installation. Add optional Mounting Plates, DIN Rails, Breather (IP68), Covers and Walls, Rails, Doors, and Locks for a one-stop compendium of cable management solutions. Our enclosures are manufactured with a staple characteristic: resiliency to high-temperature environments.
UL Fiberglass Wall Enclosures are branded by their sturdy construction and high resistance to corrosion and solvents. These features enable them to be perfectly suited for highly demanding environments such as wastewater treatment and the petrochemical/chemical industries. Fiberglass Enclosures are available with plain sides or with a polycarbonate window in seven size offerings. Quick fixture brackets at the back of these enclosures reduce installation time allowing fitting without drilling. Their built-in protective edge allows you to open the door 180 degrees while also preventing the entry of water when opening the door. Specific to the UL Fiberglass Wall Enclosures is the Series N Wall Cabinets.
UL Polycarbonate Enclosures are likewise designed for durability with a defining feature of the UL Polycon series enclosures being the corner elevator system. Each of these enclosures has distinctly marked notches in the corners to help you install all elevator parts at the same height. To provide superior protection, these enclosures are fitted with a robust pad-lockable metallic or nonmetallic latch with solely one moving component. Fortified with a high degree of protection, they are rated IP66, IP68, and IP69K rated with K10 impact resistance. Other crucial application characteristics include a contemporary design with faceted corners and cover plugs, fastening pods inside the cover, slots in the base for printed circuit boards, pre-assembled hinges, and quick release latches. Relevant enclosure product types that Sealcon offers include: Series S, D, O, W, Pushbutton, and Polycon.
