The primary function of any cable gland is to anchor the cable securely to an electrical apparatus. Ex d (flameproof) cable glands obviously provide additional safety performance related to protecting human life in hazardous locations. Strict international testing standards (IEC 60079 series) specify such demanding performance requirements for the certification of such glands that, until now, no Ex d/e corrosion-resistant flameproof compression gland on the world market has been certified without some attendant requirements or ‘special conditions’ of use. All such glands have been certified with a ‘special condition’ requiring an external clamp on the cable.
