Selection chart for cable entry devices into flameproof enclosures

Requirements for type “d” – Flameproof enclosures (acc. to EN 60079-14)

If you use a cable gland which meets the requirements of the EN 50018 and which is certified as part of the enclosure in combination with the used cable, the cable gland is suitable for usage.

If your installation does not meet these requirements, please use the selection chart below to determine the correct cable gland.
