Safety products: Push-in cable gland speeds installation times
Utility supplies: ABB introduces push-in cable gland to speed installation times. The NPG Quick-Connect saves time and offers high ingress protection.
Safety products: ABB’s latest cable gland offering, the NPG Quick-Connect™, allows for the fast and effective installation of cable into a box or panel without access to the inside of the enclosure, greatly speeding the process.
Thanks to its built-in nylon locking mechanism, the Quick-Connect offers an easy three-step process: Simply plug the gland into a properly sized box hole until it clicks, insert the cable and tighten. No nuts or separate parts are required.
The speed and ease of installation makes the NPG Quick-Connect an ideal candidate for panel builders and volume installers, as the ease of installation comes with no reduction in performance.
The glands conform to UL514B / CSA C22.2 No. 18.3; EN 62444.
Quick-Connect is a single-piece, corrosion-resistant nylon cable gland suitable for non-armored, portable and tray cable types. When installed, Quick-Connect can achieve ingress protection of IP66 or IP68. Under normal use, NPG Quick-Connect glands are rated to perform from -20 degrees C to 100 degrees C ( -4 degrees F to 212 degrees F), but in shorter periods can withstand -30 degrees C to 150 degrees C ( -22 degrees F to 302 degrees F).
The product is available through ABB distributors in the United States.
“The ease of installation alone makes Quick-Connect an ideal product for OEMs and panel builders, and for anyone in the field who works with electrical enclosures. Combined with its high performance characteristics, and I think most installers will agree that it offers a valuable set of advantages,” said Ricardo Portillo, ABB global product manager for flexible metallic conduit systems and cable glands.
