PX2KXREX-US | Class I, Div 1 & 2 | AEx e, AEx d, AEx nR, AEx ta | Hazardous Location Barrier Cable Gland For all types of Braided & Tape Armoured Cables

Globally Approved, Hazardous (Classified) Location Barrier Cable Gland

• RapidEx liquid pour sealing system
– Enhances reliability, reduces risk
– Reduces man hours
– Reduces cost
• Metal-to-metal armour clamping
• Direct & remote installation
• Integral protected deluge seal
• Disconnectable, union feature design
• Controlled outer ‘load retention’ seal
• Unique OSTG prevents overtightening
• 76°F to 185°F / -60°C to +85°C
• Globally marked, cCSAus, IECEx & ATEX
• Superior EMC performance
• As standard in nickel plated brass with NPT thread form
• Once any cable inner sheath/bedding has been removed, the RapidEx liquid resin barrier seals directly around the internal cable cores, completely eliminating any risk of coldflow on all cable types

Grooved Cone (X) is predominantly used for Wire Braid (e.g. GSWB, TCWB), Steel Tape Armor (STA, DSTA) and Aluminum Strip Armor (ASA) but is also suitable for Single Wire Armor (SWA), Aluminum Wire Armor (AWA) and Pliable Wire Armor (PWA) if the range is outside that of the Stepped Cone (W).

Grooved Cone (X) dimensions shown in the Cable Gland Selection Table below are for a double wire strand of braid armor cables. Tapes can also be doubled over. For cables that have only a single layer of armor such as SWA the clamping range should be used as shown in the table below.
