Lapp Group UK announces new versions of its SKINTOP MS-SC-M brush cable gland with its unique brush connecting system for larger diameter cables. The new cable gland has been specially designed for use with copper braid screen cables with external diameters of between 9-68mm, and is now available in metric threads from 25mm up to 75mm.
According to Lapp’s Matt Ansell, the new brush system is EMC-safe and offers a quick and reliable alternative to the traditional ‘spring’ contact method. The cable gland features thousands of brush strands in a circular arrangement which provide a wider and more variable clamping range and make assembly, disassembly and installation simpler and faster.
Fitting the new cable gland could not be simpler and can be completed in a single operation. Users just enter the cable into the gland, slide the screening braid under the brush, turn to close and the cable is automatically centered, fixed, strain relieved and hermetically sealed up to protection class IP68.
A further benefit of using a brush attachment system is that an optimal low resistance screen contact is achieved. In addition, it allows a high level of assembly flexibility, thereby allowing easy adjustment and rotation of the cable during installation.
