With its diverse range of variants the PFLITSCH UNI Dicht cable gland system leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to meeting international requirements for industrial cable glands. Whether solutions for EMC or explosion protection, multiple elbow and flange glands or combinations with corrugated tubes and protective conduits for safe, reliable cable protection – UNI Dicht cable glands have a practically unlimited range of applications. Simply put together your individual, application-specific cable gland and choose from a wide range of specific criteria such as connection thread, bending protection, increased strain relief, elbow glands, flat cable sealing, etc.

The UNI Dicht cable gland consists of a gland body and a corresponding sealing insert. The cable gland bodies are available in the metals brass, zinc, stainless steel and aluminium as well as the plastics PVDF and polycarbonate. PFLITSCH also offers cable gland bodies with a variety of different threads:
- Metric thread
- Pg connection thread (armoured thread with 80° flank angle)
- Conical NPT (National Pipe Thread – US standard thread)
- Cylindrical Whitworth inch thread (the first standardised thread in inches worldwide)
We manufacture the sealing inserts for the UNI Dicht system from the high-quality materials TPE, TPE-V and silicone, which are resistant to chemicals, improve strain relief and meet high ingress protection ratings up to IP 68 (10 bar) and IP 69 as standard. At the customer’s request we also manufacture application-specific sealing inserts. Our in-house manufacturing method also enables us to produce prototypes and small batches at affordable prices. You also have the option to punch perforations in closed sealing inserts yourself. Besides the round perforations, we also produce variants for a range of flat or non-standard cables, for example for the ASi bus.
For reasons of space or better handling, you may want to feed multiple cables reliably through a hole in an enclosure. All you need to do is replace the standard UNI Dicht gland with other types from the UNI Multiple range, which offers a variety of hole patterns so that a wide range of cable diameters can be sealed.
The multiple-cable sealing inserts are also available as splittable versions, which makes them capable of sealing cables that are pre-assembled with connectors or sensors. First, feed these components through the gland body before the cables are reliably enclosed by the two halves of the sealing insert. We also offer the sealing inserts with lateral slots for the same application, as you can easily insert cables through the slot that is open to the outside.
PFLITSCH cable glands are already capable of strain relief ratings that meet EN 62444 class A standards. The UNI Strain Relief, UNI Clamping and UNI Bending Strain Relief series from the UNI Dicht modular system provide even more safety through increased strain relief.
With these cable glands, a long, conical bending protection grommet made of TPE prevents the cables from being damaged at the bending point. The grommet fits tightly around the cable and also protects the section under bending stress from outside influences such as UV radiation and aggressive media. For easier installation, the grommet can be widened to make it easier to push the cable through.
The sealing inserts of the UNI Strain Relief are made of TPE and TPE-V with integrated clamps made of PA, which act like a jaw chuck and absorb tensile forces of up to over 200 N on the cable, making it vibration-proof.
The UNI Flex uses a specially coiled stainless steel spring with a progressive characteristic curve to optimise the distribution of bending stresses on the cable. Over a length of about 10 cm, this cable gland reliably absorbs even heavy dynamic bending stresses at the cable entry.
The two bracket clamps on the pressure screw of the UNI Clamping enable you to reliably fix cables, absorbing tensile forces of over 500 N. The UNI Clamping therefore meets the “B-version” required by the EN 62444 standard.
The UNI Bending Strain relief cable gland is a useful variant. Its sealing insert is fitted with clamping jaws for vibration-proof strain relief and also has a large moulded grommet that reliably protects the cable from kinking, for example in industrial connectors.
