Quick & Easy Earth Connections With Launch of Newlec Cable Gland Earthing Nuts
The new cable gland earthing nut
Newey & Eyre has launched a new range of cable gland earthing nuts through its Newlec brand. The earthing nuts have been designed to address the issues associated with fitting and maintaining a sound earth connection where metal glands or conduits meet plastic or metal enclosures, and are easy and quick to install.
In electrical engineering the safety and integrity of earth connections is vital. However, one area where this is sometimes compromised is the termination of armoured cables, with traditional solutions being outdated, liable to being poorly fitted and unsuitable for use on non-metallic enclosures.
In response, Newey & Eyre has launched a new range of Newlec cable gland earthing nuts, available to fit 32mm, 25mm and 20mm cable glands. The nuts provide reliable earthing for both plastic and metal enclosures, while making the installation of metal cable glands an estimated 60 per cent quicker and easier.
The Newlec cable gland earthing nuts vastly simplify cable gland termination, with teeth that aid fitting and paint removal, eliminating the need for surface preparation. A grub screw secures the nut to the gland thread, meaning a durable ultra-low resistance connection is easily achieved. For ease of use only one tool is needed for gland tightening, locking and connection, and no drilling is required.
The product also ensures the IP rating of the enclosure isn’t compromised, and eliminates issues caused through corrosion, vandalism and mechanical damage caused by vibration or impact.
Chris Tranter, product manager for Newey & Eyre, said:
Due to a lack of appropriate solutions, the termination of armoured cables is often plagued with problems and poor practice. Therefore installers have often had to resort to unsuitable alternatives, which can fail under fault conditions - with serious consequences.
We’ve developed a Newlec cable gland earthing nut that not only provides high-integrity earthing and screening terminations, but also offers a quick, efficient and cost-effective solution to save installers time and money.
