A cable gland is a device designed to attach and secure the end of an electrical cable to the equipment. A cable gland provides strain-relief and connects by a means suitable for the type and description of cable for which it is designed—including provision for making electrical connection to the armour or braid and lead or aluminium sheath of the cable, if any. Cable glands may also be used for sealing cables passing through or gland plates.
A cable conduit is a tune used to protect and rout electrical wiring in a building or structure. Cable conduits may be made of metal, plastic, fibre or fired clay. Most conduit is rigid, but flexible conduit is used for some purposes.
A cable lug, is an electro-mechanical device used to join electrical terminations and create an electrical circuit. Cable lugs consist of plugs (male-ended) and jacks (female-ended). The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices an adapter can be used to effectively bring together dissimilar connectors.
A cable tie is a type of fastener, for holding items together, primarily electrical cables or wires. Because of their low cost and ease of use, cable ties are ubiquitous, finding use in a wide range of other applications. Stainless steel versions, either naked or coated with a rugged plastic, cater for exterior applications and hazardous environments.
Cable cleats are devices designed and tested to ensure the retention and support of cables, and have been used for many years all over the world.
A cable terminal is the point at which a conductor from an electrical component, device or network comes to an end and provides a point of connection to external circuits. A cable terminal may simply be the end of a wire or it may be fitted with a connector or fastener.
