TSMe Ex | Ex eb, Ex ta | Strain Relief Metal Cable Gland For all types of Unarmoured & Braided / Screened cables

The TSMe Ex range of strain relief metal cable glands are suitable for use in explosive atmospheres with unarmoured or braided cable when terminated inside the enclosure, and have a temperature rating of +105°c to -60°c.

With approvals to the latest editions of IEC 60079 and EN 60079, as well as being internationally marked IECEx and ATEX, the TSMe Ex range ensures that cables and enclosures are protected with explosive atmospheres.

The TSMe Ex range is suitable for intrinsically safe (Ex i) circuits.

For more specific applications IP68 & IP69X ingress discs or plugs are available.

Features include:

  • Finger-locking seal provides superior cable retention and strain relief
  • Approved to the latest editions of IEC/EN 60079
  • Internationally marked IECEx and ATEX
  • Suitable for intrinsically safe (Ex i) circuits
  • 3rd party certified to IEC/EN 62444
  • Widest cable range take on the market
  • Easy to install
  • Robust design, high quality materials
  • O-ring interface seal included as standard
  • Ingress disc or IP68, IP69 and IP69K rated IP plug options available
  • Product supplied in nickel plated brass or stainless steel on request
  • Nickel-plated brass locknut available (ordering suffix 2TN)

Equipment Surface Temperature Classification

Classification of the maximum surface temperature of equipment has been established internationally to create a uniform reference table (unless otherwise specified on equipment selected, the maximum ambient temperature is taken as being 40°C, in line with IEC 60079 Standards). The purpose of the temperature classification is to place equipment into an appropriate category according to its specific thermal properties when exposed to the worst case conditions.
