The PFLITSCH LevelEx system –
cable glands with outstanding explosion protection qualities

Minimum dimensions for maximum safety

The PFLITSCH LevelEx is a groundbreaking cable gland that has been specially developed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and has raised protection standards to a new level. With its advanced features, all the required certifications and approvals for its field of application and its compact design, the PFLITSCH LevelEx meets the strict requirements of users in the oil, gas and chemical industries as well as in the offshore sector.

Your advantages for maximum safety:

A coordinated system of cable glands specially developed for protecting both non-armoured and armoured cables

All relevant certifications that meet current standards

Tightness up to protection classes IP 66, IP 68, type 4X, corresponds to the ignition protection types “Ex d”

Quick, easy installation that saves time and cuts costs

Minimal dimensions for space-saving installation

Broad temperature range from –60°C to +130°C

What makes the LevelEx a superior solution

Laboratory-certified, proven in everyday use

Featuring all the required certifications in accordance with current standards such as ATEX and IECEx, the LevelEx ensures reliable protection in the potentially explosive atmospheres G (gas) and D (dust). It achieves tightness up to protection classes IP 66, IP 68, type 4X, which corresponds to the ignition protection types “Ex d” flameproof enclosure and “Ex e” increased safety. It has also passed both the pressure resistance test at 30 bar/10 sec. (minimum requirements) and the overpressure test at 48.6 bar. The excellent levels of tightness and strain relief are achieved by the complete sealing combined with the soft cable-protecting crimp, which are based on the two-level cascading principle that gave the cable gland its name.

Ease of installation that leaves no questions unanswered

Its large, seamless sealing range allows cables from 7 mm to 66 mm to be securely sealed. It is not only suitable for use under extreme conditions, but also wherever installation space is limited, because the LevelEx covers a wide temperature range from –60°C to +130°C and has an extremely compact design. It is also very easy to handle, as it consists of only four parts, has large key contact surfaces and requires only low tightening torques. And its metallic stop always ensures a defined, constant end position. All these features make for simple, safe and therefore time- and cost-saving installation, which also prevents any twisting of the cable and/or the sealing inserts.

The LevelEx AC – what armoured cables have been waiting for

The new LevelEx AC for armoured cables completes our existing LevelEx range. It features the same technical quality as the proven LevelEx for non-armoured cables. It also has other outstanding properties, such as an innovative design to accommodate armoured cables: Two opposing windows in the armouring clamp make it possible to immediately check that the armoured cable is seated correctly, making the tedious dismantling of the cable gland for testing purposes unnecessary. The result: simple, safe installation that saves both time and money. At the same time, the cable armouring is used to provide reliable mechanical strain relief and establish the earthing connection. A deluge seal with a test certificate qualifies it for offshore use.

The LevelEx AC is further proof of our wealth of experience as experts in industrial cable management and our unique depth of development, making us the ideal partner for developing sophisticated, customised, special-purpose solutions. Produced at our plant in Hückeswagen, the LevelEx AC stands for superior quality “made in Germany” as well as for unparalleled delivery reliability and performance – an argument that is becoming increasingly important in view of today’s uncertain global supply chains.
