Treotham expands SKINTOP portfolio with new cable gland

In assembly, almost nothing is possible without cable glands. They connect the cable and housing firmly and tightly to one another, protect against mechanical influences, dust and moisture, and achieve a cable strain relief. There are different designs depending on the application. Treotham has recently expanded its product portfolio to include a brass LAPP cable gland with a bending protection spiral and good protection against electromagnetic interference, as well as an M32 thread with an extended clamping range.

The new brass cable gland has stainless steel bending protection spiral SKINTOP BS-SC-M METAL. The special design of the stainless steel spiral is developed for use on moving machine parts and protects the moving cable on the connection housing from excessive bending or even kinking. The cable gland can withstand high mechanical loads and allows a high number of bending cycles. This provides additional protection against breakage of wires and guarantees their function.

The special feature of this newly developed cable gland is the integrated highly conductive and flexible contact spring that contacts the copper stranded shielding over a large area and therefore earths the cable via the gland on the housing. This makes the SKINTOP BS-SC-M METAL suitable for EMC-compliant insertion of copper-shielded cables and offers good protection against electromagnetic interference — wherever a low-resistance transition from the cable shield to the housing is to be established.

Other advantages include a wide, variable clamping range for different cable outer diameters, as well as a variant with a reduced sealing insert to seal cables with smaller diameters. The cable gland has been specially developed for use on moving machine parts and is also suitable for outdoor use thanks to its protection class IP 68 (10 bar) and IP 69.

Additional expansions in the SKINTOP portfolio

Treotham is also expanding its portfolio of SKINTOP MS-M with an M32 thread, which is now also available with an extended clamping range for inserting thicker cables (19–28.0 mm, clamping range M40).

Users who want to remain loyal to the M32 connection thread and still want to feed cables with a larger diameter through the cable gland can now do this thanks to the extended clamping range of the M32 cable gland (19–28.0 mm). For item names with the addition "PLUS", the clamping range corresponds to the next higher thread size (here: M40 size). The extended clamping range allows cables with larger diameters to be inserted with the same connection thread.

Robust cable glands of the entire SKINTOP series

With the protection class IP 68 (10 bar) and IP 69, the SKINTOP MS-M series achieves the best possible sealing of the cable and housing. Flexible lamella offer strain relief. An innovative double lamella basket in sizes M 75 x 1.5 to M 110 x 2 simplifies assembly and prevents lever action on heavy cables. The SKINTOP MS-M cable gland series withstands high chemical and mechanical influences, making it suitable for demanding environments and outdoor use.

Available as durable lead-free variants

All models in the SKINTOP MS-M series are available in a lead-free alternative with marking LF in the item number, but with the same product properties. Just over two years ago, Treotham presented what are claimed to be the world’s first lead-free LAPP SKINTOP brass cable glands, offering its customers sustainable and forward-looking product alternatives that already meet future REACH/RoHS requirements.
