Buying cable glands, including marine cable glands, is not so simple. There is a world of choices with specific sizes and applications.

This post is all about the marine cable gland and how you can find the perfect solution for your specific cable gland needs.

What is Marine Cable Gland?

Marine cable glands are used in various marine cable settings. These are waterproof cable components that help in the termination or connection of the cable to an enclosure or device. They work with all types of armoured and non-armoured marine cables.

These play a vital role in marine shipboard cabling, providing a safe connection to the cables running on shipboard. For this reason, another name for these cable glands is watertight cable glands.

Marine cable glands may be of metal or plastic, depending on the applications. For instance, plastic cable glands may be better suited to use in ocean water, which is salty. Plastic ones are also much more flexible in terms of application than metal ones.

On the other hand, metal marine cable glands are sturdier. These are usually made of brass, nickel-plated brass, copper, and stainless steel. Think of it as a seal for the cable’s inner and outer sheath.

Types of Marine Cable Glands

Cable glands, in general, and marine cable glands, in particular, can be divided into many different types based on each category. These cable glands differ by IP levels, thread types, materials, shapes, and compression types. For marine cable glands, you’ll mainly come across the following types in different materials and sizes:

JIS Type Cable Gland

JIS type cable glands follow JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards) standard F8801, 8802, and 8803. These are usually metal cable glands featuring brass, aluminum, nickel-plated brass, or stainless steel. JIS cable glands are the best for weatherproof sealing.

JIS type cable gland has IP68 or IP69 sealing, which is ideal for underwater applications. The cable gland accessories vary by the application the JIS type gland is serving. These come in many different varieties in terms of configurations and sizes.

These marine cable glands come in PG, Metric, and NPT (National Pipe Thread) threads. This type is particularly good for sealing the outer sheath of non-armoured cables.

Clamping Type Cable Gland

The clamping type cable gland is commonly used in the shipping industry. The shipping machinery often goes through a poor environment, which calls for tougher corrosion resistance. The clamping type can provide IP68 ingress protection.

Clamping type cable glands are compatible with cable diameters of 3 to 90 mm. These are ideal for constant immersion in water, as the sealing in the gland is watertight. Typically, these marine cable glands are made of brass but plated with an anti-corrosive mineral.

Welded Type Cable Gland

The welded type cable gland is another marine cable gland type that offers an IP54 level ingress protection class. This is slightly less water or dust-tight than other marine cable glands. While it does resist dust, it does not guarantee prevention.

This kind of marine cable gland may still be made from similar materials as the other types, for example, brass or stainless steel. It may be useful in applications where there isn’t such a big threat of dust or fluids impacting the cables and the cable glands.

EMC Cable Gland

EMC or Electromagnetic Compatibility cable gland is used in settings where no electromagnetic obstruction is needed. In other words, these cable glands compress the cable shield, ensuring protection for electromagnetic fields. These are typically made of brass and stainless steel, as these materials provide the best compatibility with electromagnetic materials.

These are common for cables that need protection and sealing from electromagnetic waves. This type of cable gland also provides the best strain relief for the cable. As for the water protection level, it’s typically IP68.

Application of Marine Cable Gland

Marine cable glands are mainly used for electric cables running on shipboards. There are various industries that use marine cable glands within their electrical systems:

  • Shipping: Ships heavily rely on electrical cables for power and signal transportation, many of which run underwater. Marine glands come in handy for ship construction, as well as shipping operations.
  • Oil Industry: The oil industry also relies on many underwater oil rigs that pump out water from under the seabed. Here, too, you’ll find the use of cable glands with marine cables, often of the highest waterproofing standards.
  • Machinery: Marine cable glands are also part of heavy machinery, as they provide the best insulation for wire termination. Also, some marine cable glands are dust and waterproof, which means they offer some of the best protection against corrosion.
  • Electricity: Electric companies may need to run electric cables underwater or provide protection from weather elements. Marine cable glands are heavily used in electrical applications, be it electricity production or transportation.
  • Telecommunication: The telecommunication industry heavily relies on cables running under the earth and over the skies. They also use marine cable glands for connecting and terminating cables safely.

Features of Marine Cable Gland

Marine cable glands differ in several aspects, but some features are standard in almost all of them. Here are some of the most important ones:

Watertight Sealing

Marine cable glands have components that ensure complete sealing. Water and other elements like dust cannot penetrate the gland and damage the cable. The IP level of the cable gland will indicate what level of sealing it offers.

Their purpose is to transfer the cables into enclosures, so they basically ensure that the watertight enclosure serves its purpose. Without the gland, or with a not so waterproof gland, fluids may make their way into the enclosure.

Explosion Resistant

Certain environment where the marine cables run is prone to explosions. Some types of marine cable glands are explosion resistant. In other words, they withstand enough pressure and force to ensure that the cable stays connected to the surface even when there’s an explosion.

Threads

There are all sorts of threads that distinguish marine cable glands. So you’ll need to find out which type of threads are compatible with the marine cable system you’re using.

Metric, ISP, PG, NPT, and ISO Metric (MM) are some of the common types of threads you’ll find in marine cable glands. These are all different standards of threads that people in different regions of the world follow. For instance, PG threads are standard in Germany but are now common all over the world.

Coating/Plating

No matter what material is used in the marine gland, you’ll find it to be plated or coated with protective layers. These layers provide protection against corrosion, which is the more likely if the cable gland is in the water all the time. For instance, brass is often nickel-plated or chrome-plated to provide extra protection against corrosion and rust.

FAQs

What are the Components of Marine Cable Gland?

There are many parts in a marine cable gland, some that are exclusive to this type. However, within the marine cable gland types, some components differ. For instance, single compression cable glands lack cone and cone rings.

Here are the components of a single compression marine cable gland:

  • Lock nut
  • Washer
  • Body
  • Seal
  • Claw
  • Thread-lock

What is the Difference Between Armoured and Non-armoured Cables?

When choosing the marine cable gland, you will need to consider whether the cables in your system are armoured or non-armoured. Armoured cables have an extra layer of sealing that prevents them from damage, whether mechanical or chemical. These may be single wire, braided, or double steel tape armour cables.

On the other hand, non-armoured cables do not have as high protective layers as armoured ones. They may even be without any kind of seal. These cables are only suitable for instances where there is no risk of mechanical damage.

Are There Safety Standards for Marine Cable Glands?

Marine cable glands are used in highly risky environments, so there are safety standards for them. Buying marine cable glands that meet set safety standards would ensure they serve their purpose and do not cause any harm during or after installation.

Safety standards for cable glands vary by region. Some of the common electrical safety standards you will find with cable glands are IEC, CEC, NEC, and ATEX. Most cable glands also meet the European standard for cable glands (EN50262).

Conclusion

Choosing a marine cable gland depends on many things, but the most important is the environment you are using them in. This can be different from the industry you are using them in. No matter what application it is, the environmental factors like indoor/outdoor settings, chemical hazards, high temperatures, and damp/dry conditions matter.

Also, there are many material choices when it comes to marine cable glands. Brass remains the most common one, but plastic is more popular for data cables. Make sure to do your research to find the best materials and types for the environment and application you are covering.
